Classic: 3+ Color Paint Schemes

CLASSIC: 3+ COLOR PAINT SCHEMES

Older classic styles of architecture used lots of trim carpentry to give dimension and personality to a home. Observe the home's architecture. How many different architectural elements can you identify?  Color supports the architecture, not vice versa. The number of colors you can use on the exterior of a house is determined by the amount of detail on the trim carpentry. Color should be applied consistently to each architectural element: e.g. all window and door trim receives the same color paint. Color can be applied to highlight the architecture and craftspersonship, especially on older homes.
