Exterior House Color Schemes

I'm loving these exterior house color schemes!

Florida house colors
Watercolor is one of several communities that line the shores of Florida's panhandle that sports delicious house color schemes. Other examples are Rosemary Beach, Grayton Beach, and famed Seaside (remember The Truman Show?). Hop over to Southern Hospitality and take a tour of Seaside: Colorful Beach Cottages.

I like them all! In Germany (where we currently live) almost all buildings are beige with orange or brown roofs. I'd love it if they got a bit more colorful.

A friend and I took a girls trip to Panama City Beach this past summer and right along the coast were row house painted in all kinds of colors. They were so beautiful! Houses where I live are so boring compared to those. We need more color!!

Gorgeous! Loved this post. Makes me want to move to one of these places, pronto. Seaside is one of my favorite places. I have a girlfriend who lives nearby and she gave me the tour last time I visited her.

Oh, I'm glad you could use my Seaside beach cottages as inspiration. They sure are for me. Love that beach town! These are all pretty pics!

Beth @ Blue Socks said...

Wow, beautiful!

My neighborhood is restricted - only a small palette of colors allowed. We're the rebel house using green (there are a couple of approved shades of green amongst the 50 or so greys, whites and beiges).

I'm a little late on this post - just saw it now for the first time, but have to say I LOVE IT. I love coastal photos, and brightly colored homes/buildings. Oh, to be in one of these photos!

Airlie said...

How fun - what a delicious selection of images! We are putting together a colour scheme for our new home - we have restrictions too...reminds me of Finalnd where everyone just chooses a bright, bold or sunny colour and goes for it. Thanks, I really enjoyed that.

Oh! Atlantic Beach, North Carolina! I have to get my tee shirts in some shops up there!

Also, Seaside, Florida...I really want to visit there. I adore all those photos of the saturated-with-color homes.

I thought I recognised the Whitstable houses as this is where I live. I am new to blogging and have only just come across this blog.......I love it :o) I have just started writing my own www.bubblebaydesigns.blogspot.com I can only hope that one day it will be as good as this one.
