Dynamic Duo: How to Pull Off a Two-Tone Exterior Color Scheme

Why stick to one main house color if you can easily and beautifully combine two?

It’s house painting season once again and I’m seeing a huge uptick in requests for more unusual paint schemes. It seems that homeowners are no longer satisfied with the go-to light and neutral siding with a dark (or white) trim. I’m all for getting creative with exterior paint colors, but there’s often a fine line between a paint job that elicits a good “wow” versus a bad one. One way to change things up, tastefully, is to go for a coordinating duo of hues rather than a single color for the body or siding of the house. Check out some successful examples of two-tone color schemes for exteriors.

A two-tone exterior color scheme looks right at home on contemporary architecture. You also have the freedom to go quite bold with color on this style of home — the vibrant citrus yellow is a great choice here. I like how this bold hue is paired with a soft neutral gray and how all of the other elements are kept simple to support rather than fight with the dazzling color.
Of course, two-tone schemes need not be limited to contemporary-style homes. And you don’t necessarily need to go bold, either. A subtle color contrast is a good option for a more traditional home. Pick a house color you like and simply go a couple of steps lighter or darker on the swatch card to find your coordinating hue. READ MORE . . .
