Vancouver Colour Advice on Exterior – Before & After

This is an exterior I did a few years ago in West Vancouver. Notice how the Mediterranean tiles have faded to a pinky shade on the roof? Well it is a bit hard to tell, they were the same on the dormers which were a huge visual piece of the house, so I had them painted the same colour as the gutters and the brackets!

It’s unfortunate that the before picture was taken at a completely different angle, but I usually snap them as I’m leaving the consultation! It was quite the transformation on this previously boring white house!

    Love the new paint colors on this house – certainly brings it to life. I'm wondering, what color garden umbrellas would you recommend here? The pale blue color, perhaps??

  5. Hi Maria,
    Great before and after photos. What a huge difference the right colors make.Love it. You did not specify what colors you used.Can you tell us why you picked these colors and what colors they are? I too have this style home and would love to know what colors they are. Fabulous !

  6. Hi Anonymous,
    This house is painted CC-210 Dijon (BM) and the trim is Cork, the railings are 'Wrought Iron' and the windows and doors are Wythe Blue, HC-143. I chose these colours because of the style of the house.
    Hope this helps,
