Beige Exteriors

As we move into warmer and softer colors, we are seeing that emerge for our exteriors as well, as beige is no exception. Beige is fast becoming the number #1 pick color chosen for our exteriors, so why would we not expect to see the same for our exteriors as well?




This home above is warm and inviting. The black front door, garage door and window trims gives this home some lovely drama as well. Its a head turner for sure! Notice the cute black rocking chairs on the front porch to top off the look!

Consider Your Neighborhood’s Style

When choosing a color for your exterior, pick colors that complement your neighborhood, but don’t copy them. Drive around your neighborhood and see which colors your neighbors have chosen. Avoid using those shades because you don’t want every house on the street to look the same. It devalues a neighborhood! Instead, choose colors that complements what your neighborhood is doing. Likewise, choose colors that are fitting with your neighborhood. If you live in a high-end contemporary neighborhood, for example, a coastal blue color may be too different in the area.


Green Exteriors

This next color surprises me as a trending exterior paint color for 2024. But then, I was really surprised when I saw green kitchens starting to trend. I never thought green kitchens would be a thing but here we are and 3 years later, green kitchens are still going strong. The trending green seems to be sage green which is a beautiful green gray combination and blends beautiful with nature. Sage green was thrusted on the scene when Benjamin Moore announced October Mist as their Color of the Year 2021, and Sherwin Williams announced Evergreen Fog as their Color of the Year 2022, a year later.

Gray Exteriors

Gray exteriors have been trending for quite a while a it doesn’t look like this trend is going to let up any time soon. We see both ends of the spectrum from dark gray, also known as charcoal gray, to light gray and everything in between.

This home above looks lovely with a lighter shade of gray popped with a black door, black shutters, and white trim.

Blue Exteriors

Blue exteriors were very popular in coastal, lake homes but we saw these beautiful coastal blue colors being replaced by the black on black trend. But blue exteriors are making a comeback. Hopefully you’ll see a comeback in blue exteriors for coastal homes. I’m speculating that you will also see blue in warmer clients. Personally, I love blue house exteriors. They’re relaxing and calm. Navy blue exteriors are always a classic. But watch out for slate blue aka blue-gray homes also as I think you may see an uptick in these beautiful shades.
