A well-chosen selection of contrasting trim and accent colors can draw attention to architectural details and disguise design flaws. A poor selection can make a house seem flat and featureless -- Or so garish that the color overwhelms the architecture. But, how do you decide?
The simpler your house, the fewer colors you'll need. For an elaborate Victorian, plan to use four to six colors. Light colors will make your house seem larger. Dark colors or bands of trim will make your house seem smaller, but will draw more attention to details. For some accents, consider using darker or lighter shades instead of changing color.
