If you’re looking for colour inspiration, we have compiled some of our favourite exterior colour combos for summer below! Read on to find some great ideas for your exterior’s new look!

Yellow and blue: It’s no surprise that the colour of the sun and the colour of the clear sky combine to make the perfect summer pairing! I mean, how much more summery can you get? This coupling takes two colours reminiscent of a cloudless, summer sky and combines them to make a look that is bright and happy, and perfect for any season.


Blue and white: For a coastal look for your home, pair a gorgeous blue with a crisp white. This combination calls to mind summers by the sea, salty ocean breezes, and cresting ocean waves. Pair with a bold red door to complete the nautical vibe.


Green and black: What’s modern and fresh? Why a green and black exterior, of course! Green is the colour of vitality and vibrance, which is what the summer season is all about. Just take a look at the lushness outside! Pairing a lively green with a black trim is a unique way to make your exterior look more contemporary,  and right on-trend. The black helps to mellow the green while still allowing it to pop.


Teal and red: Arguably one of the most beloved colour combinations out there, this dynamic duo creates a striking look that will definitely make your home pop. Teal has the power to be both bold and soothing, both vibrant and tranquil, making it easy on the eyes while still packing a punch. Teal works wonderfully with a bold red and the two shades play perfectly off one another, creating an all star pairing in our books!
