Get in the spirit of spring with these exterior colours

Spring has officially arrived and we’ve been enjoying a few fleeting days of sunshine, with hopefully many more to come in the months ahead! Now is an excellent time to start thinking about the home improvements you want to make this season, and painting your exteriors may be one of these. A fresh coat of paint will instantly make your home look polished, and it’s also an excellent way to rejuvenate your home with a beautiful new colour.

This season, we’re feeling inspired by the colours around us, so we’re embracing vibrant lively shades. The below are some fantastic recommendations for your exterior colours that will look great anytime of the year (but will certainly get you into the mood for spring!).

Yellow and white: Nothing says spring quite like a sunny yellow! Always uplifting and energetic, a yellow shade will brighten your home and give everyone in the neighbourhood something to smile at. We love a punchy yellow with white trim to keep things classic. Our 10 Year Satin in Brilliant White is a solvent based paint for exterior wood and metal work with a soft, low-sheen finish.

If you don’t want to commit to a full yellow exterior, a yellow door is another excellent option that is simple to create and will elevate your entryway.


Shades of Blue: If you’re dreaming of days at the beach, why not bring the beach to you? Give your home a coastal feel by incorporating shades of blue into your exteriors. We especially love luxurious navies paired with lighter grey-blues for a stylish blue look that will remind you of the seaside. If you’re looking for a contemporary door colour that will pack a punch, opt for a bright blue like our stunning Oxford Blue.


Green and white: Spring welcomes new life all around us, especially when it comes to the blooming flowers and the sprouting plants we see. A gorgeous green shade is not only on-trend, but it will look lovely against its fresh surroundings. Pairing with white/cream or black trim will make for an elegant duo. Check out our shade Olive, which is available ready-mixed in our smooth masonry formulation. It’s complemented here by our soft off-white shade, Illustrated White.


Pink and white: Like the flowers that are opening around us, it’s a good time to think pink! While painting your entire house in pink might not be everyone’s cup of tea (the bolder the better as far as we’re concerned), pink also makes for a fun shade for your front door. With our Colourmix service, you can choose from over 30,000 stunning colours to have custom mixed to one of our quality formulas. Whatever your colour dreams may be, we can make them a reality. Not only will you get your own unique shade, you’ll also get the superior protection, durability, and ease-of-use of our products.
