DMac shares his home improvement expertise

Are you looking to revamp your home’s exterior? If so, you may be scouring the internet to find exterior color inspiration. In our latest blog, we share the best exterior color combinations of 2023. Read along to find out if any of them sparks your interest.

All-Black Exterior

The first on our list is an all-black exterior. Far from traditional, we’re seeing more and more people take on this daring route. An all-black exterior creates a modern, sleek, and bold look. There are many ways to mix it up and enhance your monochrome palate. You can add some shiplap to your exterior for texture, add bronze fixtures, or mix and match gloss and matte black hues.

All-Gray Exterior

The next on the list is an all-gray exterior. Following the monochrome train is an all-gray home. An all-gray color palette is excellent for people who want a modern look but on the more muted side. Gray is a versatile color that allows you to do just that! It’s edgy and timeless. The great thing about going with a gray colorway is that you can find ones with different undertones for added visual interest. You can find a warmer or cooler gray color to fit whatever look you want.

Olive Base Exterior Color

Homes with an olive base exterior are one of our favorites. There are many ways to mix it up. You can create anything from a rustic look to industrial, farmhouse, contemporary, and more. Overall olive homes exude warmth and coziness. We especially love olive homes fitted with white trimmings and natural materials like wood. They give off an earthy vibe we adore. While an olive home can look great anywhere, it’s especially perfect for homes surrounded by a lot of greenery, whether in the forest or mountains.

The Best Exterior Color Combinations of 2023

Blue Base Exterior Color

Just as we love a beautiful olive-colored home, we also love a good blue one. From navy blue to powder blue, the options are endless. In general, blue is perfect for Southern Californian homes. It is a perfect ode and pairing to our ever-blue skies and ocean. Just as the beach has a calming effect, going with a blue home will allow you to feel a sense of calm and peace within your home.

White Base with Light-Colored Trimmings Exterior Color

On the other side of the spectrum of an all-black home, we have a white house with light-colored trimmings. Light-colored trimmings that work well include light gray, beige, or blue. It is a fresh look that exudes sophistication and class. Just as an all-black home makes a bold statement, an all-white home pops just as well. If you’re not entirely convinced and want a pop of color, you can easily throw in a colored-front door for a bit of contrast.

About Us

A Five-Star Company


These guys are awesome. They did a coating on my house called “Texcote”. I love it. My house has never looked better. The crew was great. They were Clean on time and very nice, and after they finished, Renzo himself came back to do an inspection and check to see if I was happy. Not many companies do that. I thought that was great. Definitely will recommend them, and I will use them from now on for all my home improvement needs.
