When you want to change the entire look of your home quickly and inexpensively, changing your exterior paint colors is arguably the most dramatic and least expensive way to achieve impressive, powerful and immediately measurable results.

A well conceived exterior paint scheme can immediately add freshness, value, neighborhood interest, and marketability to your home. And a fresh coat of exterior paint immediately projects an image of a competent, proud homeowner who takes good care of his or her home.

And the color palette you select can immediately change the mood of your home, as well, projecting any identity from casual beachside cottage to classic, elegant villa. Accentuate details or make them fade into the background.

o Highlight architectural details like windows, door, and unique trim with complementary and attractive color combinations drawing on natural tones, like fresh pair and deep, cool topiary green.

o Add a touch of luxurious sophistication with a combination of the deep, warm chocolate of New Look Grounded and its paler counterpart, New Look Element.

o The pale, buttery cream of New Look Georgian combined with the minority but persuasive blue green New Look Providence tone give the impression of sheer dignified class.

o Get in a Tuscan mood with the casual and relaxed elegance of warm, golden New Look Icon paired with the cool freshness of New Look Topiary.

o Cool, clear, contemporary lines are accented with the mixture yet striking combination of deep and moody New Look Provence, fresh New Look Metro, and the calming coolness of New Look Element.

o Give your home a personality makeover, with the garden inspired New Look Leaf, combined with the informal, beachy combination of sand tones like New Look Georgian and New Look Element, enhanced with the watery coolness of New Look Provence.

o Evoke the romantic mood of the traditional French provincial style when you use the warm yellow tones of New Look Icon complemented by the sky-blue clarity of New Look Provence.

o For a minority but undeniably striking change, try highlighting trim in a shade closely linked to the rest of the home. A combination of warm neutrals, like New Look Georgian and New Look Element, are ideal for this look.

o To achieve a warm Mediterranean flair to your home's exterior, try pairing a wall color of neutral yet warm New Look Stillness with the oxidized copper accents of New Look Metro on trim and window surrounds.

o Make your home as inviting as a sylvan pond with a watery cool palette, that combines walls of silvery New Look Stillness with the calming forest shade of New Look Provence. Add New Look Metro's hint of playful azure as the perfect color to accent the front door.
