The outside of your home says a lot to people. Getting your home painted with a great color scheme can sometimes be a hard decision for people to make. I know because I sit with people as they try to figure out what colors their siding, shakes, trim, garage door, etc should be. For some of us, we have a vision in our head but it doesn’t always turn out the way we want it to or think it should. That’s why there are professionals to help with the many color choices that are out there. Most major paint stores (Sherwin-Williams and Benjamin Moore) have a decorator on staff, or you can always enlist an actual painting company to help choose the right color palette for your home. The attached slideshow from This Old House gives some awesome choices for Colonial Revival homes, however, these color choices would also work well with most of todays modern homes.
