Beige gives off a classic look with a strong neutral tone. This particular tone of beige can transform your home’s exterior into something sharp and exciting. When working with this trending exterior house color, the most impactful applications are those that feature bold, contrasting colors used as visual outlining.

Another great choice for exterior upgrades is soft lemon siding. Before you vote no, consider pairing it with warmer beige colors. Soft lemon transforms from a bright, childish color to a more mature, sophisticated palette when presented side-by-side with warmer beige colors. The key here is to strike the right balance with this color. Tone down soft lemon by using it in combination with warmer hues.
