The outside of your house is the first thing people see, so pick your palette from the Dulux Weathershield range to turn heads for all the right reasons.
Think about the style and era of the building: traditional or country can be updated with chalky or pastel shades; while greys and neutrals bring classicism to modern designs; for Victorian or Edwardian, consider heritage-inspired shades of grey, cream or pale blue, befitting their period.
To create a sense of flow, echo the colours used inside – because there’s more natural light outside, you can go a couple of shades darker than you might indoors.
Look to your neighbourhood for colour inspiration, from brickwork to trees. There are 19 shades in the Dulux Weathershield Smooth Masonry range and 6 Dulux Weathershield Textured Masonry paint shades – something to suit all styles.
Use outdoor lighting to enhance exterior paintwork in the evening: yellow-amber bulbs mute blues and greens and make oranges and yellows more vivid; white lights resemble natural light, keeping your walls bright by day and night.
