Classic Exterior Color Schemes 

A home’s exterior color schemes play a vital role in its overall look and appeal. If you’re looking to do some exterior painting, you’ll soon find that coming up with the perfect color combination is rather challenging, especially if you intend to keep it like that for a long time.

A useful tip to overcome this challenge is to avoid conforming to the latest color fads that will eventually fade. Instead, stick with the true classic color schemes which will remain appealing for years to come. The right combination will show off your style and bring attention to your home’s beautiful details, all while still being modern and never going out of style.

Here’s a list of beautiful color schemes that are timeless and classic


  • Black and White
    Classic white home exterior color schemes with the siding, trim, front door and shutters painted black is timeless and chic. It has an interesting resemblance to mansions and farmhouses from the colonial era and has a warm vintage feel to it. A bonus is that these colors complement each other so well and will never go out of style. It’ll continue to be the go-to color scheme for homeowners for many years to come.
  • Peach and Beige
    This combination of soft, gentle colors is adored by many. It’s the classic Nana’s home colors and can evoke happy memories. It also creates a warm, inviting environment that is soft on the eyes. Although this color combination might come off as rather feminine and a bit too playful, it could also be toned down with darker and deeper colors such as brown or burgundy.
  • Ivory, White, and Aqua
    This interesting combination evokes a sense of elegance and heritage. This bright-colored palette goes very well with darker accents. It gives a home a traditional look while keeping it modern and edgy.
  • Navy and White
    Navy blue is such a classic color. On its own, it looks great. It also looks great when paired with light colors such as white. These two colors complement each other very well when used to paint a house – exterior or interior. White is a high contrast color that lifts the deep hue of navy giving it a more contemporary look. This color combo is the ultimate time-worn classic that boosts a home’s curb appeal.
  • Chocolate/Brown and Beige
    There’s plenty of ways to apply this warm combination. You can paint the whole exterior of your house brown and cover other elements like the front doors and windows in beige and vice versa. This unique scheme will highlight the fine details of your house without overwhelming the senses. This versatile combo is classy and not going out of style anytime soon. It also helps that such earthy colors are especially suited for the outdoors where they are functional and beautiful.
  • Brick Exteriors
    Granted, this isn’t a color, but it deserves a spot on this list. It doesn’t get any more classic than brick walls. Brick walls typically have a reddish hue. Go ahead and paint it a different color for a new look. Consider using soft gray or a darker gray here for a classic or more traditional look respectively. Stick with neutral tans but use darker colors for accents such as windows and doors.
