Muted Neutral Exterior Colors

Shades of muted neutrals are ideal for landscapes with other muted elements. If you live in a dry climate, think about exterior color schemes that go with the land around you. For example, Greyhound is a trending brown-grey drawn from landscape. Accent with a creamy white like Antique White. To add some interest and welcome guests, add a dark blue-grey to your front door like Superstition. Paint the door this shade of blue to add your own special touch.
