Best Paint Colors for Architectural Features:
Andrea Magno, Benjamin Moore’s director of color marketing says “you should use materials, such as brick or stone on the exterior, to inspire the color palette.” If you have stone or brick details don’t think that means you can’t add extra color. You may feel the urge to add a fun pop of color on part of your home exterior, but be careful. Bold and bright colors can be overwhelming and clash with the natural coloring of the land.
