Need Help Choosing Exterior Color

Posted by Andy55 (My Page) on

I'm in the process if building a house off the east coast of Mexico on the ocean and am having problems finding the right color. The attached is not exactly the proposed colors they are Behr Joyous Yellow and Behr Aquatone. There is also a stucco fence that needs to be tied in. Another though was paining the main body of the house Benjamin Moore Antiguansky with a slightly different blue for the accent piece. And with both trimmed in white. I do not want the festive colors associated with Mexico and most houses in the area are taupe or white. Any suggestions greatly welcomed. Thank you!

No one here seems to have any recommendations for you. I am hesitant to suggest exterior colors for another part of the country - and in this case outside the US. If you want to tone down the yellow, look for colors with words like "cream" in them.

Light sky blue maybe?

You might post this in home decor thread as people there can be helpful with colors.

I think the yellow and green combo with the terra cotta is a nice one, only these shades are not the right ones.

You might search on line for images of south miami deco buildings to get some inspiration for how to do color that isn't super bright.
