Shades We Love
No other colour is quite as striking as a bold and vivid plum, and it captures the eyes of passers-by as they are instantly drawn to your vibrant facade. Not to mention, it looks stunning against any style of home, whether it’s an old traditional build or a more modern design.
A lighter shade of purple with calming undertones, lilac offers a peaceful and tranquil feel to any home exterior. If you’re looking for a sophisticated and luxurious finish to offer timeless style that will be envied by all guests and neighbours, consider the light and delicate tones of lilac.
Be the envy of your block or neighbourhood with a bursting pop of colour to your home exterior. Grape is the new obsession, offering a chic and stylish look to any outdoor design. Being a brighter shade of purple, it’s important to consider the existing style of your home, as too many bright colours can instantly clash with a dramatic shade like grape. We recommend classic white trims and neutral brickwork and panels.
The softest shade of purple there is, lavender creates a soothing feeling of peace, tranquillity and bliss. It’s also a great choice for spring and summer, especially coupled with gorgeous natural greenery, potted plants and hanging baskets.
A purple orchid represents royalty, respect, admiration, and dignity. And it’s easy to see why. This bold shade makes a luxurious addition to the main entrance of your home, especially contrasted with white trims, natural greenery and neutral panel work.
Like what you see? Purple is a luxurious and dramatic colour to work with, but before you take the plunge, imagine your home in all seasons and consider the overall look in the area you live. It’s great to stand out, but worse to look amiss.
