From classic to bold, showcase your style outside your home with inspiration from these exterior paint color schemes that offer serious curb appeal — and beckon visitors inside.
Mustard Yellow + Brown + Honeysuckle White
This will give a subtle nod to Tudor style with its brown accents but will be thoroughly contemporary with a bright coat of mustard yellow. For such a statement, opt for a neutrally stained wood door.
Crab Apple + Blue Gray + Beige
Make a bold statement with warm and earthy red, a color that looks exceptional on traditional homes. Pair with a cool blue door and beige shutters for a classy all-American vibe.

Prairie Brown + Gray + Yellow-Gold
Modern dwellings maintain a warm, yet minimalist vibe with a neutral palette of brown, gray and gold.
Cheerful Yellow + Cinnamon + Pure White
A modern beach house is perfect for this, as it warms in the sun with a custard yellow glow, grounded by a cinnamon stick front door. Pure white accents on the windows contribute to the crisp and clean vibe.
Apricot + Peach Cream + Green
To create a focal point at your front door, paint your entire exterior in similar shades of one color family.
