One of the best ways to inject new life into the look of your home without breaking the bank is by repainting. It does work wonders for the interiors of our homes, but let’s not forget the exteriors as well. It’s the first thing you see the moment you pull up, after all.

People tend to play it on the safe side by sticking to just one color for the exteriors of their homes. Let’s shake things up a bit with color combinations! Here are some engaging color palettes we’re recommending for your home’s exteriors using the LIVE Color Palette of Boysen Color Trend 2022/2023.

Silver Streak and Marine SanctuaryEngaging Exteriors with the LIVE Color Palette | MyBoysen

You can never go wrong a light gray shade like Silver Streak. It’s subtle, put-together, and makes your home look sleek and elegant. But sometimes, a little too much gray in your color palette can start to look…well, boring. Switch things up! Incorporate a bright pop of color using the vivid blue hue of Marine Sanctuary in key areas in your home’s facade. Paint this accent color along columns, beams, or even balconies to keep things interesting.

Mellow Mint and Hidden Oasis

Engaging Exteriors with the LIVE Color Palette | MyBoysenYour home should always be a place where you can unwind and relax, a place you look forward to coming home to. Imbibe this soothing atmosphere into your home’s exteriors by using the different blue-green shades of Mellow Mint and Hidden Oasis. Using hues from the same family but in different shades create depth in your home’s facade. Now, all that’s left is to plant some trees and shrubs around the perimeter to truly make it a mellow oasis.

Cool Tides and Sahara SunsetEngaging Exteriors with the LIVE Color Palette | MyBoysen

You have two choices in coming up with your home’s exterior color palette: the safe choice and the fun choice. The safe choice is going for minimalist off-whites and earth-toned hues. And, there is definitely nothing wrong with using those kinds of hues. If you want to spice things up a little bit (but not too much!), incorporate a bright pop of color on the facade. I say, go for the blazing orange hue of Sahara Sunset. Paint it alongside the dark gray hue of Cool Tides to create a visual balance.

Permacoat Semi-Gloss Latex

These hues from the LIVE Color Palette of the Boysen Color Trend 2022/2023 collection can be mixed using the base of Boysen Permacoat Semi-Gloss Latex. It’s a 100% acrylic, water-based latex paint with excellent hiding, outstanding durability, and good dirt pick-up resistance. In simpler terms, Permacoat Semi-Gloss Latex makes your house look good…for a very long time. You can read more about it here.
