When it comes to exterior paint colours, we seem to be entering a world of greys – moody, smoky, stony, earthy, take your pick.

From the lightest hint of stone through to the richest of charcoals, the grey colour palette is vast. And it is proving to be a popular choice to suit all styles.

Here are 3 reliable colour combinations

Neutral Classic

Looking for the subtle foil? The neutral classic has timeless appeal. It’s a fabulous choice if you are considering selling in the future as they are unlikely to date.

Before you fall in love with a colour:

Exterior house colours can be governed by where your home is located within your local government area.

Check your local council’s Development Control Plan (DCP) and any relevant heritage restrictions.

We’d hate you to fall in love with a colour only to have to enter into negotiations with Council (if that is even possible).
