We all know that certain colors can evoke universal feelings: a calm blue, a cheery yellow, a serious black. But these reactions can also be strongly personal. Why not revive your palace with some refreshing colors to start the new year? Here’s how to capture those mood-boosting colors to freshen up your home for 2021.
What’s Your House Style?
Consider your home’s architecture. Understanding the type of home you have is important. Do you own a Victorian or a Colonial style home? Many homes in the US are the very traditional ranch-style, but there is a growing resurgence in mid-Century Modern. American Craftsman & Bungalow style homes inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement, are also unique in their styles.
The key is to understand what color palettes go best with your home’s style and layout. Bright, cheery, whimsical colors will look super-adorable on a bungalow-style but may not work on a Victorian home which lends itself to more serious, neutral paint colors.
SoPro Tip: When picking your colors for your home. Save time by browsing combinations of colors and not just 1 or 2 main colors. Consider the color scheme for the entire architecture of your home: exterior walls, shutters, gutters, soffits, windows, frames, and doors.
Take a Walk.
Take a walk through your neighborhood to see what colors are popular with your neighbors. While you may want to show off your individual style (and we don’t blame you). You also don’t want to pick a color combination that doesn’t compliment the neighborhood’s aesthetic. Adding bright, unusual colors may not sit well in a neighborhood that has a mostly neutral color scheme. You want your home to stand out not stick out.
SoPro Tip: Make sure to check your Homeowners Association and any Historical Society Guidelines for recommended colors if your home is part of a historical neighborhood.
Colors That Last.
Your home’s new color palette needs to be carefully thought through. Your home’s exterior paint colors should be a combination that you will want to see every day and are going to love for at least the next 10 years.

The cost of painting your home exterior can range and a free estimate is a wise step.
