New guide suggests colours for 7 homes Kansas - Arab Today A new online guide aims to help those struggling to decide which colour to paint the outside of their homes. The free online guide, FRESH Colour Schemes for Your Home Exterior, is written by American colour expert Kate Smith of Sensational Colour and created in collaboration with DaVinci Roofscapes. It offers home-improvers colour options for seven different styles of home, helping them choose colour palettes that complement the exterior of the building. “Many homeowners are afraid to add colour to their home exteriors because they don’t want to make a mistake,” says Smith, a career colour trend forecaster. “Especially when people look at the style of their homes, they can become confused by what colours will enhance their exteriors. This guide takes away those fears and puts the power of colour in the hands of the homeowner!” Smith takes a “top down” approach advising people to start by thinking about the roof, and then work their way down the house to consider the siding, window frames, front door and trim. “There are so many wonderful colour combinations that are striking on different styles of homes,” says Smith. “It’s exciting to create this online tool that gives step-by-step guidance to homeowners for adding colour to a wide variety of home styles.” Smith thinks no homeowner should feel “locked into blah or standard colours on their home’s exterior”. “A shake or slate polymer roof can have an appealing blend of colours, such as browns and autumn tones,” she explains. “Low-maintenance vinyl window frames and grids come in pine green, chocolate and even brick red to add pizzazz to the home. And, homeowners can create a welcoming front entrance by painting a fiberglass door a striking accent colour. Tie that all together with painted urethane trim pieces that add the ‘icing on the cake’ for the home and you can really make a home more appealing with coordinated colours!” The classic American home styles showcased in the FRESH guide include Ranch, Colonial, Bungalow, Victorian, Spanish Mission, European and New American. Smith offers several colour combinations for each style, along with tips for making homes complement the rest of the neighbourhood. To download the guide go to or Source: PR web
