Every year, we reach out to our partner Sherwin Williams to talk about the color trends in our Denver market. We like to see what trends are occurring in order to better guide our customers in choosing the right exterior color for their home. Hot off the press, we’ve put together a few recommendations directly from Sherwin Williams to get your interest peaked going into the spring months.
Before we start, we need to describe two categories:
- Historical Colors – these colors focus heavily towards dark browns, maroons, blue, and green.
- Timeless Colors – these colors seem to have a broad range, and heavily focused around lighter yellows and browns, with deep blues and deep reds similar to Historical colors.
Coming from Sherwin Williams, “Denver is swaying more towards our Historical color palette this year with a darker roof line trim. The doors and accents are now more on the lighter side.”
Let’s take a deep dive at a few of my personal favorite Historical Colors:
- Rockwood Shutter Green– A beautiful dark green to be used as the main color, accent, or paired with another color. This dark green is a staple in many of the neighborhoods around Denver, and something that really stands out.
- Rockwood Red – This take on a deep red screams Southwest all over it. It’d be a perfect interior or exterior color for those homes looking for that pop of color alongside a grey, brown, or white.
- Rockwood Dark Brown – This dark brown would be an excellent choice for a primary exterior color. By throwing in some color (perhaps the Rockwood Dark Green above), this would be another home that’d fit with the new-age home style in the Northern Suburbs of Denver.
- Renwick Beige – If the darker tones aren’t your style, this Renwick Beige would go with any style here in Denver. Imagine pairing this lighter beige with a darker style roof and a pop of color door… you’d be the showstopper on the block.
- Downing Slate – If a colorful house isn’t your flavor either, this Downing Slate grey would be an exceptional primary exterior color to go along some lighter colored pillars, or darker accents. There isn’t a color out there that wouldn’t pair well with this grey.
