It’s the time of year where many of us look forward to spring and are eager to put winter behind us, especially in parts of the country where we experience snow, ice, and cold temperatures. While spring is a beautiful and exciting time of year, winter is not without inspiration, especially when it comes to home exterior color palettes.
For many parts of the country, winter has its share of gray days. But every now and then, there’s a gem—a day where long-lost sunshine warms glistening snow and illuminates icicles, and then transforms the crystal blue sky into a glowing sunset as it melts behind the horizon. Those days are what inspired us to create the Calm & Tranquil home exterior color palette.
In this house exterior color palette, the front entry door features WINTER RAIN—a glaze that is available on ProVia’s Embarq® and Signet® fiberglass doors. Tones of steel gray imbued with a hint of cool blue give WINTER RAIN an icy look that is serene, yet stylish.
Buttery soft ANTIQUE WHITE super polymer vinyl siding and warm, rich LARKSTONE slate metal roofing take the chill off this neutral color palette—like a mug of smooth hot cocoa with creamy marshmallows on a cold winter’s night.
Modern yet timeless, cool POLAR EDGE CUT™ stone and WHITE windows and accent shakes for contrast and definition, keeping the colors from melting into each other.
