Our dark greys and stronger tones make a confident statement, ideal for contemporary architecture or more traditional homes. Use two or three harmonious colours to complement your home and bring together the desired look.
Sometimes the clever application of a splash of colour is all that is needed to lift your home to brand new heights. A neutral colour scheme can provide the perfect backdrop for a bold front door, that welcomes visitors and provides a personal stamp on your home.
An all-white colour scheme is a classic look that will help your home look fresh and timeless for years to come. It also suits a wide range of different house styles. When choosing a white consider something a little softer than a bright white, so it doesn’t give off too much glare. For the scheme below, warm white Dulux Cardrona is paired with the crisp white of Ōkārito on the windows and trims.
Using a soft and subtle grey as your main exterior colour will help give your home a sense of style and timeless elegance. Greys work particularly well when paired with a crisp white on the windows and trims. For the scheme below, the soft and slightly warm grey of Dulux Millwater pairs perfectly with Ōkārito on the trims. Other popular soft greys to try include Dulux Grey Lynn, Greytown and Manorborn Double.
Reflect the unique architecture and valued heritage of your home and enhance its history. Popular greys are versatile and their chameleon-like qualities make them suitable for almost every style of home.
Celebrate and highlight the key elements that make your home's alfresco areas special. Warm and welcoming spaces invite rest and relaxation in style.
Make an impression from the moment your guests arrive by adding an individual touch to your front door. In addition, use lighter shades for features you would like to highlight, such as fretwork and windows. These will contrast against the house's main exterior colour and create a beautiful statement.
A new coat of paint can easily transform your outdoor entertaining area. Classy vivid whites create a crisp, modern vibe, while pretty pastels add a sense of luxury. If you’re feeling brave, try a bold contrasting colour scheme to create a fun focal point. No matter what exterior paint colours you choose, make sure it complements not just your garden but the outdoor paint colour of your home for a cohesive look.
Nothing evokes richness and warmth like dark colours. These schemes are always popular, making them an inspired choice for a wide variety of house styles. Look around your neighbourhood to see what colours appeal to you. The front of your house is all about first impressions.
Neutral colour schemes can complement natural textures such as timber, stone and architectural features of both modern and traditional homes. To add a touch of flair, highlight trims with lighter or darker colours.
