Green House Color Schemes

Looking for some beautiful green house color schemes? You’ve come to the right place. Just as important as the interior colors you choose. Exterior house colors should be ones you love coming home to day after day. When it comes to picking exterior siding colors, you can’t go wrong with trendy shades of gray or classic neutral tones. But if you want to really stand out, consider giving your home an elegant touch by going green.

It’s quite a well known fact that the room colors you choose impact how you feel when your in the room. But many don’t realize the same principle applies to the exterior of your house. A neighborhood filled with beige homes isn’t very appealing to the eye. Boring color schemes don’t invoke much excitement when standing at the curb. While many realtors might advise you to choose a neutral color as to appeal to the widest number of potential buyers. No one ever chooses beige as they’re favorite color. Playing it safe isn’t always your best bet, while no one may hate the house, it’s safe to say no will will really love it either.

Great green house color combinations, it’s all in the details. From the siding colors to the shudders, trim, accents and those perfectly trimmed bushes around the back blue stone patio. Green is the color of life and nature. It can breathe a sense of health and vibrancy into almost any home.

Take a look at some of the beautiful green houses of all shades and styles shown below after reading through our siding color FAQ. We hope they inspire you.

Things To Know When Choosing Green Siding Colors

Brighten up your home and boost that curb appeal with a brilliant selection of new paint and siding colors. Knowing a few basic facts will help find the absolute perfect siding colors.

Choosing your home’s colors is an intimidating process and there’s always a fear you might make costly mistakes. Unlike painting a room or a front door, it’s difficult to change siding colors once you’ve done all the work. House colors can have an impact not only on how you feel about your home, but on its value too. Choosing a combination of colors that are pleasing to the eye is crucial.

That’s why we’ve put together the simple diagram below. Understanding the basic parts of your siding and how they all fit together is important to know before you start picking colors.

What Are The Different Siding Parts Called?

siding color parts of a house chart

Your home is made up of a variety of parts that all need color choices. These parts are:

Main Body:The main body is the siding of your home. It’s the largest area of color and should be your base to coordinate all the other colors around.

Trim: Trim is what’s around all exterior windows and doors and the corners of the house. This is generally white but can also be colored.

Accent: Accent colors are things like shutters and doors. These are typically bold, dark colors that make a statement. They don’t necessarily have to match.

Roofing: Roofing shingles are a color you shouldn’t forget. Always coordinate the shingle with the rest of the home.

Railings and Columns: Railing and Column colors have to be considered if you have them. Typically in NJ they’re white, but it all depends on the style of the home. We have some Victorian homes with bright colored columns and railings. We also have modern homes that use a lot of metal including black finishes. And we have country homes using real wood timber columns and railings. These types of accent pieces should fit the overall style of the home.

What About Landscaping For a Green Colored House?

Landscape plays an important part in determining siding colors, especially on a green colored house. Landscaping can be a great way to add curb appeal to a home. However with a green colored house you have to take special care in selecting your plants. Everyone notices a beautifully landscaped home. Especially if the landscaping and house colors compliment each other. But if all you do is add more green then the design can fall flat.

Keep this in mind when planning your landscaping. The home is primarily green and most landscaping is green so be careful not to over do it. Be tasteful when selecting what to plant and where. Even if your landscaping is predominately green make sure to vary the shades so that the colors stand apart.

Remember to keep in mind the long term maintenance landscaping requires. When it’s done right, well maintained landscaping is a beautiful thing and can really make the house stand out. But when it’s done wrong and not well maintained, it really looks bad. Keep this in mind when designing your yard as some plants are easier to maintain that others.

Keep in mind the local climate. Here in NJ we have to use primarily cold weather trees and bushes so they don’t die in winter. Flowers need to be re-planted every spring. And some plants need to be wrapped to survive the cold.

Rocks and retaining walls, otherwise known as hardscaping, don’t require maintenance and really look great.

All this should all be considered when designing the exterior of your home.

Despite what many people believe, green house color schemes work well on just about any home. True, you do have to be extra careful when designing a more colorful house. It’s riskier when you start choosing bolder colors. Everything goes with grays and other neutrals, that’s why they’re so popular, but that’s not the case with color. The more colorful the home the more things can clash or look out of place. You have to be more careful as you use more colors in the design.

Green siding can be dramatic, thus giving a home a much bigger presence than it might otherwise have. Try to create contrast as well as a sense of balance. A mix of materials is essential.

Use plants and other landscaping to add tasteful splashes of bright colors you won’t find on the house.

When you use a pastel green make sure to keep the color scheme simple. Adding a bunch of other colors can clash with the green or overpower it. Lots of white trim works well as does black and other natural colors and materials.

Almost every home built today is using white trim. But when you choose green siding then beige trim becomes an option.

Green Colored Houses & Nature

A beautiful green colored house in nature. Some people assume green is a bad siding color choice for a home surrounded by all that green. But that’s not necessarily true. Natural, earthy colors like green and brown look great in a natural setting. Sometimes a harmonious house color scheme works best.

Keep in mind if you choose green siding for a home that’s surrounded by huge trees and landscaping that you vary the color tones. If you choose green siding that matches too closely with the natural colors then the home will look flat. Reference the example shown above.

Even though this home has green siding and is surrounded by green, the shade doesn’t match anything in the home’s surrounding.

The curb appeal of a home plays a huge part in drawing the interest of potential buyers. The exterior is usually the first thing potential buyers see, and the siding color can play a big part in a buyers opinion of the home. Some buyers look online when shopping for a new home and never even bother to come and see the inside if they don’t like what they see on the outside. A great color scheme is a must.

So, how does the siding or exterior color of your home affect its resale value? What types of colors offer the best resale value and make buyers more likely to buy your home? What colors should you stay away from?

Considering green house color ideas is a good idea when designing a home with resale value in mind. Green is considered a safe choice that won’t turn potential buyers off. It’s a color, which is refreshing considering the current house color trend of white or gray. It’s not boring. And if a green house color scheme is done right, it can help create a truly beautiful home. Just like the example shown above.

Green Colored House: Gray Green With Red Brick

Why isn’t green more prevalent in the housing industry? Picking exterior colors is a challenge that many homeowners struggle with. When it comes to non neutral house colors, many homeowners are simply scared to make a bolder choice. The same principle applies to cars, this is why the number one selling car color is white followed by silver and black.People are generally scared to choose a color for fear of getting something wrong, so they play it safe.

Muted hues go far beyond tan and beige, with plenty of ways to stand out while blending in. Gray green is gray with just a touch of green, making it technically a neutral with just a splash of color. Match it with red brick for a timeless combination that works on virtually any size or style home.

You can choose a neutral siding color like gray green and be bold at the exact same time. Neutral siding colors tend to sit back allowing other features to come forward. Features like landscaping, decks or patios, stone work, interesting architectural features or house textures become the star of the show. That’s where the red brick comes into play.

Reference the above photo. A muted gray green siding color allows a variety of other features to shine. Like the real stone patio, red brick, landscaping and impeccable custom white trim work as well the architectural design of the house itself. By not drawing attention to the home with vibrant color you let other things stand out instead.

Ripe Olive Green

Ripe Olive Green isn’t a color seen often on a homes exterior but when done right it’s a beautiful look. Dark colors add drama and depth, sending a message that you’re not afraid to be noticed. There’s no denying the drama a dark house creates. Making a strong visual statement and, like a black dress, needs minimal accessorizing to complete the look. A real conversation starter, hard to miss and even harder to forget.

In a garden or against natural surroundings, the facade of a dark house will recede and focus attention instead on green foliage and other elements like brick, trim or stone work. This enables the eye to draw better distinctions among different shades of color. Making dark homes in a rural environment that much more appealing.

We wouldn’t recommend siding your house this dark if a part of a suburban community with tight spacing and crowded spacing. But if your somewhere rural with enough privacy and a landscaped location, ripe olive green is definitely a color worth considering.

Ripe olive green is a neutral color and contrasts well with many other materials, textures, and hues. It goes perfectly with natural elements like stone, concrete, wood or brick. Like with most darker colors white trim really stands out.

Like some other greens, artichoke green is anything but dull, exuding elegance while making a bold statement. Gray greens also looks amazing on a number of architectural styles making it quite a versatile choice.

There’s an assumption out there that waterfront homes sided in dark colors are gloomy and depressing. Some people even say that dark homes feel small and claustrophobic. But nothing could be further from the truth. When dark palettes are executed properly they are cozy, dramatic and full of life.

Despite what many people believe, dark colors work well on just about any home. True, you do have to be extra careful when selecting shades. It’s risky when you start choosing bold colors. Everything goes with grays and other neutrals, that’s not the case with color. The darker and more colorful the home the more things can clash or look out of place.

Dark colors can be dramatic, thus giving a home a much bigger presence than it might otherwise have. It’s important to create contrast as well as a sense of balance. A mix of materials is essential – use different textures in your siding, roofing and accent pieces. Some items should pop against a dark background, so use some light and/or even darker colors on occasion and make use of interesting shapes. Use plants and other landscaping to add tasteful splashes of bright colors you won’t find on the house.

It’s always great to add some accessories to every home, but with a dark home, it’s good to limit it to only one or two. Dark homes are inherently dramatic so you don’t want to overdo it. Focus on adding single bold elements to draw the eye rather than lots of individual items. The number of elements appropriate for a home will always vary so trust your eye and your instincts.
