From classic pale shades to almost black, grey is a popular exterior colour choice for Australian homes.

Traditional

For a beautiful, timeless colour scheme try the subtle shade of Tranquil Retreat with a contrasting roof in Colorbond Monument. To highlight trims or architectural details, add a clean, crisp white such as Vivid White™.

Contemporary

This lighter grey colour scheme is soft and relaxed and will work beautifully for contemporary exteriors, as well as a traditional weatherboard. Terrace White is a cooler white with a greyish undertone, pair it with Lexicon on the trims, windows and details and Colorbond Shale Grey on the roof.

Shadowed

Darker greys have become extremely popular in Australian exteriors. Bring a darker, moodier scheme to life by using Teahouse as the main wall colour. Use Dulux Dieskau for any trims, windows or architectural details and Domino as the roof colour.

Bright Spot

Use bold hits of colour in architectural details such as the front door, pot plants and letterboxes to express your personal style. The popularity of mid century architecture inspires us to experiment with colour on exteriors for a modern take on architectural colour palettes.
