One With Nature

When selecting the right color palette for the front of your house, take a cue from your surroundings. Lush greenery shrubs blend seamlessly with the bold, green front door and matching shutters on this pale yellow, English cottage home.

First Impression

Create a warm and inviting feel with a splash of bright color. The fire engine red door on this traditional home provides polished contrast to the black shutters and white paneling.

Farmhouse Feels

You can never go wrong with a cozy, neutral exterior. Dark, walnut-stained shutters and a matching wood front door enhance the warm, farmhouse-style exterior of this whitewashed home.

Sunny + Bright

With its bright yellow front door and dark amber shutters, this playful cottage is sure to shine even on the cloudiest of days.

A Touch of Olive

Olive green board-and-batten shutters and a matching front door add warmth to this modern, cottage-style exterior while complementing the home’s emerald green landscape.

Black on Black

Sporting matching black, raised-panel shutters and a glossy black entry door, this traditional-style cream home is the epitome of elegance.

In the Navy

Navy blue wood shutters and matching front door pop against this French country estate’s stucco exterior.

Crazy for Cutouts

Popularized in the 1920s, cutout shutters are a subtle way to showcase your unique personality. With its half-moon shutters and mustard yellow door, this navy blue bungalow proves beige doesn't have to be boring.

Gray Goodness

Less is more when it comes to this modern Colonial’s color palette. Elongated gray shutters add height and character while a white entry blends seamlessly with the cool, crisp exterior.

Unexpected Combo

Could your home use a facelift? Paint the front door an unexpected color, like a bold red-orange. This stacked home’s door provides a stark, dramatic contrast to its traditional white shutters and green siding.

Classic Colonial

A timeless colonial deserves an equally timeless color palette. Black louvered shutters offset a rich walnut front door to create a sophisticated look on this red-brick classic.

Coastal Chic

Striking teal shutters and a pale blue door add a punch of seaside-esque color to the front of this buttermilk yellow home. We're also swooning over the ocean-hued front porch.

On the Farm

With its clean, white siding and striking apple red shutters and front door, this charming North California home looks like it was pulled straight from a country farm.

Rustic Charm

Muted green siding provides a soft backdrop to oak shutters and a wood front door, allowing this Tudor-style cabin to blend seamlessly with the lush, rolling mountains that surround it.

Color Pop

"This house has so much character that you almost can’t tell it’s new construction, say" homeowners Brit and Zack Drozda. And we agree. This soft white home shines with sea blue, board-and-batten shutters and a rustic, arched front door.

Historical Beauty

As the old saying goes, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." This 1920s-era, Tudor-style home looks just as it did back in the day, with black, louvered shutters and sophisticated, matching front door gorgeously complementing the blue-gray, wood shingle siding.
