Exterior colour ideas


Inspiration for exteriors can come from anywhere. To help you get started we have created some popular looks using Resene EzyPaint virtual painting software. These are just a few of the many colour scheme options you could choose – the only limit is your imagination. When choosing dark colours, consider using a Resene CoolColour™ to reduce heat build up vs the traditional colour.
