Coastal Home With Gray Exterior and Bright White Trim
A cool color palette perfectly suits this beach home. Blue-gray siding is accented with thick white window frames, columns and trim. Covered porches on the first and second floor add depth to the exterior and create a space to enjoy the ocean air in any weather.
Traditional White and Gray Two-Story Home Exterior
A pale dove gray for the exterior and a darker gray for the shutters creates a soft, sophisticated mood for this two-story traditional home. A wide brick path takes visitors up to the front door in style. Evergreen landscaping and a window box on the second floor adds a touch of color to the space.
Contemporary Neutral Brick Home Exterior Gray Trim
The home's original door, with unique crescent-moon window, was retained but given a new finish with a pleasing gold stain that permits the wood grain to show. Charcoal gray trim and new custom metal railing offer tastefully subtle touches that make the house stand out.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines opened the porch back up, bringing back a more classic and elegant look to the exterior. Though they opted to keep the original brick and not paint the exterior, new stucco and contrasting gray trim highlight the home's traditional Tudor style.
Jenelle Isaacson of Living Room Realty played up the architectural details of this home's trim by playing down the body color of the home. She found the perfect dark gray for the base that worked with the indirect light of the Oregon skies. Next, she painted the door details, columns and porch ceilings a simple white, really making them pop.
This classic front entrance features a covered front porch with a white beadboard ceiling and a black front door. The porch is painted a light gray hue, and a white wicker chair provides a comfy spot for relaxing.
Bright flowers and shrubs line the walkways, which lead to the entry of this lovely home. Black doors, shutters and windowpanes stand out against the bright white wood siding. Rock walls on the outside of the garage add warmth to the exterior.
With limited space along the front façade of this home, every space that could contain plants became a planter. Framing the house with soft edges include a Japanese Maple and a Magnolia, boxwood globes, bacopa and carex grass.
