  • Q: What colours do you think are trendy and have some feature for an exterior?
  • A: 

    What colours do you think are trendy and have some feature for an exterior? My painter has suggested weatherboards and soffits in Resene Black White and a fascia in Resene Masala. The front door could be Resene Masala or Resene Black Sheep. I am not good at colour and I can't imagine what it would look like.

    I feel that the Resene Black White may look too stark and cool. You may like to consider the following colours for the weatherboards and soffits - Resene Thorndon Cream, Resene Triple Sea Fog or Resene Half Joanna.

    If the fascia were painted dark, it will create a hard line of dark colour that would also attract a lot of heat from the sun and might deteriorate quickly and need repainting sooner.

    I would suggest that you look at the following colours for a softer/lighter feature for both the fascias and the front door: Resene Tapa or Resene Quarter Gravel. These colours are still slightly deep and create a nice feature but are softer overall.
