Kate Smith, a color expert and career color trend forecaster, presents the Fresh approach to finding the right color for each element of the home – roofing, siding, doors, windows, shutters, trims and accents.

Fixed Features: Take inventory of the colors of the home’s fixed fixtures like foundation materials, roofing, chimney structures, decks and patios. The fixed features usually remain the same for the life of the home. This makes them a better source of color direction for the siding color, which is likely to change over the years.

Regional Colors: Consider the home’s geography to influence the color scheme of the home exterior. Blend the natural elements in the color scheme.

Environment and Surroundings: Take into consideration the overall look of the neighborhood. Find colors that express individual style and complement the other homes in the area.

Style of the Home: Consider the architectural style of the home. Color and materials support the home’s look and architecture, not vice versa.

Historic and Have-to-Use Colors: Work within homeowner association regulations or historic district guidelines.

“A well-chosen color scheme can bring out architectural details, downplay flaws and enhance the look of your home,” says Kate.
