“I am currently obsessed with very dark houses (black, almost-black, and navy blue) and very light houses (white and its many permutations). These feel unique, original, and fresh. Perhaps this is a reaction to the preponderance of mid-saturation gray houses in almost every Westchester neighborhood.”
Debra Kling Colour Consultant, Larchmont
“We have seen a push toward a more monochromatic look, where siding and trim are the same color but done in different finishes, with the front door painted as a feature item. Our color and finish preferences are in the Fine Paints of Europe line. The quality of their products is significantly better and the color selection is much more appealing.”

“White-on-white for both the clapboard and the trim is our favorite, but clean and simple doesn’t have to be boring. We are adding bursts of color on front and back doors — electric blues, chartreuse greens, berry purples, and bright yellow all add personality to a home.”
