Spring is here, the birds are cackling and singing, daylight extends into evening hours and the fresh green of new grass sprouts spell f-r-e-s-h! As you walk about your property, take a look at the paint on your home. Does your home reflect the freshness of the season? No? There is a way to reinvigorate your biggest investment and it is the easiest thing to change with a new coat (or two) of paint!

2016 offers energized exterior paint colors and since the Kansas City painting market trends traditional, that is where we begin!

This traditional style home features the colors Cardboard, Believable Bluff and Urbane Bronze from Sherwin-Williams. The names are a bit tame, but the nice balance of earthy tones create a polished appeal. This style is prevalent in Johnson County.

Red Barn is the primary color for the house picture on the right, while Alabaster and Domino trims create a pop and catchy eye appeal! The second house features the overall color of Slate Tile, and trim in Grecian Ivory and Manor House. These newer construction homes re-introduce early 19th century style with old school colors. Think Lee’s Summit, Missouri!

Khaki Shade, Tiki Hut and Brandywine instill a sense of elevated color and gravitas for this manor-style home. Notice the colors beautifully blend with the natural setting. The style and size spells Overland Park and Leawood, Kansas!

Softer Tan coats the primary space, while Foothills and Darkroom trim complement the stone work and brick on this English style tudor home. Prairie Village and Mission, Kansas are two cities with residences of this age and style.
