Let’s take a look at sage green — a popular muted green for homes. I’ve worked with many homeowners who are drawn to sage green but are hesitant to go for it because they fear their home will look like every other home on the block. If you are looking to go green but want to stand out from the crowd, read on for some tips and examples of how to shake things up with sage green.
One way to add some pizazz to an exterior color palette is to go with a two-toned scheme. If your home is clad in two materials, this is an easy way to split the colors — each material gets its own color. A general rule of thumb is that darker colors look better near the base of a house and lighter shades at top.
Go for more drama by pairing sage with a deep, dark hue, such as navy blue. This is an excellent way to break up the color on a taller or larger home. Also, because this home has less trim and fewer ornate details than the previous example, it can handle a bolder color palette.
This stunning color palette includes small accents of bolder gold and teal. Because all of the colors are in the yellow-green family, it has a harmonious feel. The colors blend nicely even as the beautiful ornate details stand out.
