I know that the trend in exterior home colors these days leans toward neutrals, but I love homes cloaked in fun, bold colors. When we moved into our circa 1875 clapboard farmhouse, it was painted pink with green and white trim. I loved it! But when we painted it pale yellow a few years later, our neighbor thanked us. I do love a buttery yellow home though, and have a collection of 12 charming yellow houses for you today!
Ah, the classic yellow clapboard house with crisp white trim and a big front porch! I love all the windows and did you see the cute suspended lights on the porch?
Oh, what an adorable Victorian cottage!! I love the use of gray on this home, and the teal colored garden hose on a filagree holder makes it an accent piece instead of an eyesore.
Can you imagine the views from the windows of this gorgeous home? I like the use of the raspberry color around the second story window on the left.
This mustard yellow house proves a home doesn’t need a lot of embellishment or intricacies to be beautiful. The use of rustic red paint draws attention to the multi-paned windows and doors.
Oh to live in the house on the hill! I’m a sucker for any house with a turret like this one.
Would you live in a converted barn? I love this yellow barn-turned-home.
A craftsman style home wears mustard yellow … and did you notice this house has a teal colored garden hose just like the Victorian cottage earlier in this post? I think I may need to get one for my own yellow house and display it proudly.
I love smaller homes and this yellow charmer sweeps me off my feet with its white picket fence.
Yellow comes in so many shades and saturation levels. From pastel to intense, I like pretty much every shade on the outside of a house.
This beautiful yellow home has great architectural details on its main peak. Its green roof lends a classic touch.
Wowser! I don’t know if I’m more impressed by the yellow stucco home or the cool blue expansive pool! What a beautiful villa type home.
And then there’s my humble abode dressed in Butter Up. We painted her last fall and I haven’t taken full house photos yet because I’m waiting for spring when there’s flowers and leaves on the trees.
What’s your favorite exterior house color?
