The colours of a house and the face it presents, should be uplifting. The effect of such colours on us is immediate and
intuitive. The colour and condition of a
house exterior can also affect its inhabitants. The proposed colour scheme is given in table-I enclosed. It
should start from bottom of the building to the roof.
Exterior colour schemes need not be limited to outside walls and windows. The colour of window boxes is
another element of a buildings faade. The best window box colour is one that has a creative relationship
with casement colour. The colour of the box should always be different from that of the window casement.
You need not slavishly copy your neighbors but it is important that your house sits comfortably with the others on the street. Your neighbors might become annoyed with you if your house stands out in a garish fashion on a conservative street. Once you have taken in the basic rules that your neighbors follow you can then please yourself in your personalization of your house.
If you find the colors of the houses on your street a little dull you may be able to paint the front of your house a different color from the back allowing you to create one look for the streetscape and another for your rear living. Your ability to do this will depend on your house type and on what can be viewed from the street. You don’t want to give your house a lopsided appearance.
