Exterior Paint Color of the Year 2019

Color of the Year
Hot Exterior Paint Schemes for 2019-2020

As an annual feature, Color of the Year from ProTEK Painters helps you keep up with the ever-changing exterior paint trends in the Newton area.

For a long time, the trend was to keep your exterior neutral for curb appeal. Earth tones are still popular, but paint color combinations are more daring this year.

Take a look at three featured paint schemes, from our preferred suppliers, and general information on current trends.

Elemental Exterior Painting Inspiration from Sherwin Williams

Exterior Painting Color Scheme - Newton MA - SW Cavern Clay - ProTEK Painters
Sherwin Williams
SW 7701
The Sherwin-Williams color of the year is Cavern Clay.

This earth-inspired terracotta is warm and soothing. It brings hints of nature and Southwestern culture.

This choice tends towards the traditional and brings to mind adobe or log homes, depending on the accents.

Our featured scheme starts with Cavern Clay on the siding. Moth Wing trim gives the home an energized feel.

Adding Distance (SW 6243) on the front door and accents combines a bolder choice with a nod towards traditional black and brings the whole project together.

If you stick with a white exterior, Cavern Clay makes a great front door color.

Benjamin Moore’s Sophisticated Neutral Exterior Paints

Benjamin Moore’s choice for 2019 is a sophisticated, cool gray tone they call Metropolitan.

A softer choice, this gray pairs well with stunning, modern options. Beginning with a Metropolitan base and adding Livingston Gold trim makes your home stand out and shouts elegance.

Hale Navy on the door is more than a nice touch; it is a great choice for the Newton area. The navy blue fits both traditional New England color choices and the area’s climate.

This is an especially effective option for selling your home.

Uplifting Blue by Behr

Behr Paint of the Year - Blueprint - ProTEK Painters - Newton, MA
Our final preferred supplier’s color this year is Behr’s Blueprint. The color of the sea before a storm, it pairs with almost anything. No matter what your inspiration, this blue probably fits, and definitely inspires happiness in anyone viewing it.

With so many options, consider choosing a clean white for trim and accents. The combination is the epitome of classic New England.

Exterior Painting Color Options

Earth tones and neutrals still allow you to express yourself. If you want to combine tradition with something trendy, Sherwin Williams offers Coral Island (SW 6332) and Temperate Taupe (SW 6037). Red and purple-based tones, respectively, either option is a wonderful base for an earth tone-inspired exterior paint scheme.

Pastel exteriors warm your home and express your personality. Normally reserved for accents, a muted hue can fit the siding too. Behr’s Blueprint works with Sand Dance as an accent, or Standing Ovation as an understated purple base with Blueprint on the trim and accents to deepen the overall look.
