The extensive detailing of Victorian exterior home creates terrific opportunities to get creative with color. Not all colors match well with the Victorian theme, but refreshing the exterior home with a classic Victorian color can re-establish the cosmetic charm that may have been lost over the years. There are several Victorian exterior home colors. For example, homeowners can choose earthy tones. If you’re hoping to add a bit of history to your Victorian’s exterior, go with a neutral earthy color. Inspired by the exterior landscape and a relatively conservative view of color, many Victorians used neutral, earth tones, like tan, oak and even dark brown, as the main exterior color on their homes. Trim was usually painted with a variety of other darker earth tones, such as earthy reds or olive green.
