Brad Churchwell's Home Trends April 2016
Colour It Purple What exterior paint colour goes great with browns and grey? Purple. Go bold and paint the exterior door or porch to a relatively simple coloured home a deep, eggplant purple or even a middle of the spectrum amethyst shade. Keep the paint fresh and new or weather it a bit to create a unique modern yet rustic feel. Paint the trim around windows and doors a shade of mauve to make a house stand out from all the others on the street. Add complimentary curtains to the window for a more exciting colour palette. If the thought of purple paint is too extreme, add purple to your outdoor space with accessories or flowers. For instance, enhance a stone walkway with purple flowers, plant pots or solar lights. Incorporate purple patio furniture and accessories to bring a dull cement patio or balcony to life. With so many different shades of purple available, choose one that has the proper undertone to go with its surroundings and then get creative.
