Examples of Exterior Decorating for Inspiration

Now it’s time to sit back and appreciate Exterior Decorating.

Exterior Decorating Paint Color Scheme
Wonderful Colors selection distracts you from the simplicity of the building.

Sometimes all it takes to make a great exterior is a splash of color. This exterior facade is flat with little architectural merit. By using bold color, the designer has created focal points to highlight the entrance and frame the garden taking your eye away from the large expanse of the flat mint green wall.

Bronze Sculpture and Brick
Exterior Decorating at it’s best – Bronze Sculpture against a brick wall.

This is just amazing – wouldn’t it be great to see this as you walk past a large expanse of brick wall in the city. It creates interest and shows that the building owner has an appreciation for an extremely talented artist.

Textured color tile
Lovely softening of building façade with textured blue tiles.

The use of tile on this exterior façade softens the look by adding color and texture. The tile has worn over time and the weathered patina adds a sense of a traditional old building standing the test of time.

Black and White Tiles

The attention to detail in the exterior creates a classic traditional entrance. Black wrought iron fence leading up to a white plastered balustrade with a black handrail. The black and white checkered tiles lead you into the solid black door well which is balanced between to wrought iron lamps. A very well decorated exterior color scheme.

Art Deco Miami Style
Lovely Art Deco Miami color scheme

Its always great to see buildings decorated to a style, this building facade has Art Deco Influences and the color scheme chosen is a Miami Art Deco scheme which used bold pastel colors. The palms at the front consolidate the style.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at the exterior photos to give you some decorating inspiration. More great photos, ideas, and inspiration tomorrow.
