Featured Homes: Part I
Bright and Inviting
This home could appear imposing and grandiose finished in traditional exterior paint colors. Choosing a striking color palette helped give the home a playful look while preserving its impressive presence. Perfect Periwinkle (SW9065) on the siding accents the undertones in the stonework while Pure White on the trim showcases each architectural feature.
Cheerful Farmhouse Vibes
Here you get to glimpse us hard at work applying a classic color combo for exterior house painting in Lexington. We used SW 9646 Create for the body, a gentle neutral color that was perfect to offset the genuine stars of the show: the shutters.
SW 7585 Sun Dried Tomato allows the shutters to provide a bold pop of color, all while remaining true to the character of this traditional neighborhood.
I Want to Paint it Black
Sorry for the ear worm, but we couldn’t resist. In this photo, we’re just putting the finishing touches on this grand contemporary home.
It may look black in the light, but that’s an illusion: there are a lot of good reasons you wouldn’t want to use a pure black on an exterior paint job. But the homeowner loved the effect of SW 7615, Sea Serpent, paired with a Linen white trim.
Classic New England Charm
Even though we're not close enough to live on the coastline, exterior house painting in Lexington can still capture a sense of the seaside lifestyle. This gorgeous bungalow is a great example.

Lazy Afternoon Vibes
The owners of this home love sitting out on the porch with a steaming cup of coffee or a glass of homemade lemonade. Exterior house painting in Lexington doesn't get much better than this classic suburban New England home.
For this job, we used a three-color combination to display this home to its best advantage.
Color Choices for Exterior House Painting in Lexington, MA
Lexington is a historic town, but that doesn't limit your paint color choices. You can go as red at the Munroe Tavern, a sturdy gold like the Hancock-Clarke House, or a play on the traditional style like this recently painted home.
We applied SW 6177 Softened Green to the siding. Despite the name, the effect on the eye can range from a soft off-white to an almost cheerful yellow depending on the lighting. Using SW 7757 High Reflective White ensured that the trim offered a 'door's always open' greeting.
Of course, the actual star of the show here is the front door, trimmed out in SW 2839, Roycroft Copper Red. It pulls the rest of the exterior together and helps the entire home look amazing.
You’re Welcome Here
Speaking of doors, we thought we’d give some focused attention to a fabulous entrance. Choosing the right paint colors can help you convey a sense of warmth and welcome.
It can also help brighten a front door like this one, where they set the door into an alcove that might otherwise appear shadowed.
Historic Wood Siding
Here are three stages of exterior house painting in Lexington so you can get an idea of how it might play out for your home.
On this little gray house, we started with siding repair and light carpentry. Next, we worked on the roofline and prepared the deck for sanding and repainting. And finally, we prepped the home for painting. We applied SW 6191, Contented to the siding. The homeowners chose SW 0068 Copen Blue for the deck.
What a difference! Contented is technically a shade of gray, but it’s light enough to appear as a creamy cozy white for improved curb appeal.
Towering Multi-story Home
Here’s another in-progress photo. We're preparing the siding and repairing it prior to the application of the paint.
This pre-prep process is essential to a successful, lasting result.
I can’t recommend John and his team enough! He arrived quickly after we contacted him about paint services for our condo and he was professional from start to finish. We had a few questions as to why our building was turning off color, and he took the time to explain the issue in detail and offer a solution. His price was very reasonable, and he and his team were helpful, punctual and responsive with all of our questions and needs throughout the whole process. The actual paint job came out great, inside and out. We’re thrilled with the final product! Highly recommend!
