Contemporary home exterior colors are vary. When it comes to choosing your contemporary home exterior colors, your exact color choice will depend on your area, because surrounding colors and natural light can make a big difference in the way paint colors appear. For suggestion, match a color to the environment or style of your home. Try deep plum with mossy green, or gold and gray-green. If you live in the sunny Southwest where lighter, brighter colors are more common, put a modern twist on traditional terracotta tan and paint your stucco home fresh salmon paired with sky-blue trim.
