A common color mistake homeowners make is choosing an exterior paint color they love (I look great in mint green, so my house surely will too!) without noticing their surroundings.
Most of us with detached homes live with trees, grass, shrubbery and so forth right adjacent to the house. Those shades of green and brown live harmoniously with many paint colors. Mint green isn’t one of them. Nor is baby blue.
Instead of candy-like pastel shades consider softer more grayed shades.
And while you’re at it, consider the colors your neighbors are using. Don’t choose flamingo pink without considering its impact on the neighborhood.
