Home Living : February 14th 2012
MB HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, February 14, 2012 3 EXTERIOR PAINTING GO FOR BOLD AND BRIGHT WHEN choosing exterior paint, it's important to look at a number of things, including what you have in and around the house. The trend is going bolder and brighter. Consider existing colours on and around the home that can- not change, such as roofing and stone accents, as well as trees and foliage which change colour seasonally for compatibility when choosing an exterior colour scheme. Test colours outdoors with sample pots, viewing colours at different times of the day. Do not accent any unattrac- tive elements your home may have, such as gutters and down- pipes, with stark contrasting colours. EXTERIOR PAINTING MAKING A STATEMENT MANY NOW OPT FOR DARKER COLOURS Homeowners today are happy to experiment with darker shades. Janita Singh FIRST impressions can be last- ing and the colour of your home's exterior often says a lot about the people inside. Get it right and you will not only make a good impression, but add value to your home. Light colours such as whites and beiges have traditionally been a safer option for many Australians. But the trend is changing with many now brave enough to show a bold front to the world. Dulux's colour expert, Andrea Lucena-Orr, said homeowners today are happy to experiment with darker shades. ''Darker schemes present an opportunity to make a strong statement,'' she said. ''Whites and light neutral colours have become the stan- dard for homes. However, con- sumers are becoming more con- fident in making bolder colour choices, while a darker scheme in the neutral, green, grey or blue palettes can make your home stand out in a subtle and unobtrusive manner.'' Darker colours can also comp- lement and offset your plants and landscaping, anchoring the home within its surroundings.
