Here's another example of taking advantage of the traditional Craftsman deep porch to make a house feel more like a home. Note the comfy seating area in front. The paint colors are by BEHR: Quail Ridge, Pebbled Shore and Blooming Wisteria.
Whether you prune it or pull it, keeping dense, tall foliage away from the house shows off the Craftsman's distinct architectural features to full advantage. The paint colors are by BEHR: Shale Gray, Powdered Snow and Wooden Swing.
Make a nod to your home's environment with a color palette that matches its surroundings but still packs curb appeal. This traditional home's soft pine green base pops with an accent of sky blue and an understated creamy white door.
Capture sophistication and elegance with a muted blue-gray color palette accented by white trim. The traditional front door is painted a deep navy-turquoise to complement the slate gray wood shingle siding.
High-contrast landscapes call for high-contrast color palettes. This desert ranch stays cool with a white exterior and an accent of chocolate brown trim. The beauty of this color combo? Any accent color can be chosen for outdoor furniture and decorations.
“Painting just one wall can completely transform a room,” says Erika Woelfel, VP of color for Behr Paints. “Pull your inspiration from existing kitchen decor, your favorite foods or BEHR Color Trends to find a color that suits your space.” The intense green accent wall in this photo is Behr’s Japanese Fern.
