2013 Exterior Color Paint Trends: East

The New England and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States are rich in history and feature some of the most elegant vintage-style homes. The regions also produce some of the most pristine colors in nature throughout our country; the majority of these colors are duplicated to produce the exterior paint color trends for the Eastern United States.

Yellow Painted Exterior Home

New England

The homes found in the New England region are Colonial, Georgian and Federal style homes with large focal points and well defined trim lines. The gray tints from the Atlantic Ocean and beautiful green foliage that fills the New England summers inspire the latest exterior painting trends. Deep hues of grays and greens maintain the historical look and feel of the region while red and navy accents and trims are inspired from the wildflowers and bring an added allure to the home.


The homes found in the Mid-Atlantic region are based mostly on Tudor, Arts and Crafts and Colonial architecture and are perfectly suited for lively exterior paint color. Also inspired by the natural colors found throughout the region, the top exterior painting color in the Mid-Atlantic is sage. Natural accents and trims that best match this lush tint of green are found in grey river rock tones and create a welcoming atmosphere.

Southeastern Coast

The southeastern coast has many Mediterranean and Spanish style homes with terracotta roofs and tan, sun-burnt colors. This still holds true throughout the latest exterior paint color trends as pastels and corals are best accentuated in these unique styled homes.
