New “FRESH Color Schemes for Your Home Exterior” Online Guide Available Free!

FRESH Color SchemesReady to “shake up” the outside of your home with color? DaVinci Roofscapes and Sensational Color have joined together to introduce a new free 36-page FRESH Color Schemes for Your Home Exterior downloadable guide online.

Written by national color expert Kate Smith of Sensational Color, the guide explores color options for seven different home styles and makes it easy for people to choose color palettes that complement the exterior of the home.

“Many homeowners are afraid to add color to their home exteriors because they don’t want to make a mistake,” says Smith, a career color trend forecaster. “Especially when people look at the style of their homes, they can become confused by what colors will enhance their exteriors. This guide takes away those fears and puts the power of color in the hands of the homeowner!”

Smith takes a “top down” approach to providing tips for adding eye-pleasing color palettes to the home exterior. She advises people to start with the roof color, then work their way down the house to consider the siding, window frames, front entry door and trim.

The specific home styles addressed in the FRESH Color Schemes for Your Home Exterior guide include Ranch, Colonial, Bungalow, Victorian, Spanish Mission, European and New American. Smith offers several color combinations for each style’s exterior along with tips for making homes complement their neighborhood settings.

The comprehensive and colorful online piece was a collaborative effort of Smith and several building product manufacturers, including DaVinci Roofscapes, Fypon®, Simonton Windows® and Therma-Tru®.

The free color guide is located on each company’s web site (click HERE) plus on the Sensational Color website developed by Smith. Her first ebook in the series, FRESH Home Exterior Colors, is also available for free. That 30-page step-by-step tutorial provides insights on adding color to the home exterior by using the FRESH approach, which stands for Fixed features, Regional colors, Environment and surroundings, Style of the home, and Have-to-use colors.
