Exterior colours we love for 2021

Happy New Year! We hope you’ve had a lovely start to 2021. January offers a great opportunity to take a look at your home and make your own decorating resolutions for the year. Below you’ll find some exterior colour inspiration that’s perfect for 2021, and beyond!

1. Get a dashing door with Cranberry Swirl

The shade Cranberry Swirl in our Rapid Dry Gloss is the ideal red for a timeless front door. It’s our firm belief that you can never go wrong with a red door, and this classic look pairs well with a variety of wall colours. Our Rapid Dry Glosses are also able to be used on metal and give a mirror shine-finish to exterior surfaces, specially formulated to resist cracking.


2. Opt for On-trend walls with our Smooth Masonry Paint in Olive

Green is particularly big this year, but we’ve always been huge fans of this tranquil colour. Our shade Olive is a fresh take on green that’s not too dark, not too light, and just the right amount of muted for those who want to make just the right amount of a statement. Our Ultra Smooth Masonry Paint is dirt resistant, breathable and waterproof, using “Microseal” technology to give unbeatable results. Pair Olive walls with a black door and white trim for striking look.


3. Go for Bold with an Oxford Blue Door

Vibrant and intense, the shade Oxford Blue will enliven your entryway and bring energy to your home. Painting your front door is a simple, cost effective, and relatively easy way to transform the look of your house. We love the shade Oxford Blue paired with greys for a contemporary look, or with crisp white for a nautical feel.


4. Bring the warmth with Sandstone

Warm up your walls with our stunning creamy beige Sandstone shade. Sandstone looks lovely with lighter cream tones, such as our Soft White, and really stands out when paired with a dark brown, like our ever popular Bitter Chocolate. These shades will give your home an inviting look that will stand the test of time.


5. Get groovy with Grey

Grey always looks contemporary and clean, and our Slate Grey always looks sharp. This darker shade works well with a variety of trim colours. Slate Grey with a black trim will give your home a fashion-forward look and this shade with a bright white trim will give your house a coastal feel.
