Home Exterior Color Trends 2012/2013: Green's A Natural
As I have been looking at the 2012/2013 color trends for home exteriors that I’ll be presenting at the International Builders’ Show, I was reminded about just how versatile the color green is and wanted to share a few tips on how you might use green on your home’s exterior.
“Going green” has become the norm and the movement continues to keep green on trend. Natural yellow-green might first come to mind when you think of natures influence but you will see an entire range of greens in 2012. From dark, and mysterious to murky, muddy greens and lush, leaf greens. The one characteristic that connects all of the variations of green is that they are all drawn from the unspoiled landscape.
Another option in either setting is to use green as the color for your front door. In warmer climates, the green is like an invitation to an oasis inside.
And don’t forget about considering it for your roof. Look how fabulous Multi-Width DaVinci Slate in Weathered Green looks on this home. Even if you don’t want a roof in green, all of the colors offered by DaVinci are environmentally green, so use the Color Designer to find the perfect color for a composite shake or slate tile to compliment your home.
Does that give you some ideas for using green? Please stop back to learn about how some of the other colors that will be on trend for 2012/2013 and beyond can be used on home exteriors and which will work well with your synthetic shake or slate roofing system. Next up:
