New Orleans House Paint Colors: Yellow, White, Rust, Blue

Click twice for a bigger view

I love everything about this new paint job. The yellow exterior and fancy corbels are bright and cheery. Wouldn’t it be nice if all paint stayed looking as fresh as when it was new? Dreaming.

Then, the white in-between the slats of siding sets them off nicely. The red/rust shutters and door screens pop nicely. And of course, we must have a blue porch ceiling. This is a nice house to come home to.

Exterior side and corbels: Buttery yellow
Trim: White
Shutters and screen door frames and other details: Red/rust
Porch ceiling: Periwinkle blue

    The side and porch ceiling colors are so bright and cheery. I hadn’t even thought about doing contrasting colors like that on the porch.

    These colors are awesome inspiration for my next project. I’ve always loved New Orleans and its culture and people. When I saw the colors used for this exterior remodel, I immediately smelled sea air and could hear a faint sax:-)

    I love that many homes in New Orleans are painted non-traditionally and really stand out from the crowd. Thanks for a great reminder of my last trip down there, Kathy!
