I’m surprised not many houses opt for a blue exterior. I like the look as long as it’s a good blue for exteriors. My preference is a dark blue or blue/grey offset with white trim.
Speaking of white trim, you’ll notice most of the examples in this collection have white trim. It’s a great look. The few without it are overwhelmingly blue. Our aim with this collection is to provide a diverse showcase of homes with different shades of blue to help decide whether it’s the right color for your home.
Blue contemporary craftsman-style home with shingle siding and white trim.
Large blue house on a sloping lot with full-width balconies. This is a light blue verging on grey. An interesting front door is on the side of the home due to the sloping nature of the lot.

Turquoise blue beach home surrounded by palm trees with an ocean view. White trim and garage door go well with this blue.
Large 3-story home with blue wood siding and white trim. The garage door is natural wood. This home includes a rooftop deck.
Blue/gray home with shingle siding and stonework. The home features a lovely veranda on a typical suburban lot. Custom stamped concrete driveway complements the blue/gray color scheme.
I love this dark blue juxtaposed with the extensive white trim and white window frames. The lower exterior is gray stone. It’s a great look, and this home has outstanding curb appeal as a result.
Light blue home with light gray roof shingles. Not my favorite shade of blue for a home. I much prefer dark blue.
Talk about an incredible scene and property. Large two-story home with a fairly bright blue exterior set against a mountain with Autumn colored leaves all over the property.
Large blue and gray house. The top exterior is blue with shingle siding. The lower exterior is grey with regular siding. The 3-car garage features white garage doors, which match the white trim elsewhere on this home’s exterior.
Blue verging on gray is a terrific color for this modern Northwest-style home with splashes of natural wood. Interestingly, this home’s exterior trim is a darker blue which is unusual given many homes opt for white trim. The lower part of the home has a light grey stone for the exterior. All in all, a stunning curb appeal.
Rear view of a blue home with a large deck with blue railing and support beams.
Cozy two-story older home with blue exterior with white trim. Visitors are met with a small porch featuring a white railing.
I think here’s an example of a blue home that doesn’t work. Way too much going on with the blue, white trim, bright red door, and then red brick. The home exterior should be blue, where there is brick. That would work well. I’d opt for a darker blue as well.
Close-up of a blue house with a red door and white trim. Again, I’d prefer a darker blue. Notice the chimney also has blue siding with white trim. I like that touch to maintain the uniform look. As noted above, mixing red brick with blue siding doesn’t work well.
Here’s a blue/green home exterior with white trim. Not my first color choice, but it’s unique and not an eyesore.
Gorgeous blue house until the top of the second-floor windows. The white timber work simply doesn’t work and makes a mess of this home’s exterior. The shingle siding should have continued to the roof line. What a shame for an otherwise incredible-looking home.
The natural wood shingle look goes well with the blue siding on this home, along with extensive white trim. Too bad the porch railing wood tone doesn’t match the wood shingle siding.
Great home design, and I even like this blue, but then the wood stain is too light and made worse with the beige garage doors. A darker wood stain with matching garage doors is what this house needs to make the blue exterior work.
A blue/gray classic home with charcoal gray exterior shutters flanking white trim windows is an absolutely beautiful look on this stunning home. I love it. Rood could use new, darker shingles, though.
I love the shingle siding, but the shade of blue is not working for me. Too light. Darker would work beautifully.
Bright, dark blue with white trim and some light gray stonework make up this home’s exterior. The blue is a tad bright for me, but it does provide some color to the neighborhood.
Very nice two-story home on a wide lot with a blue/gray exterior and white trim. I like this blue a lot. It has a touch of green in the hue as well.
One could argue this is a grey, but it has a blueish tint to it, so it’s here. I like it quite a bit (I like blue verging on grey). It’s hard not to love that property and check out that massive veranda.
Another view of the home above. Yup, looks great from this perspective too.
If I were presented with this blue in a swatch, I would not pick it, but I would be mistaken. I think this blue works spectacularly well with this home. The splash of wood shingle works really nicely, although a bit more would balance out the effect. The bottom white looks good too. Overall I like the unique exterior of this 2.5-story home.
Here’s an older home that’s been invaded with a bright blue. I do like the very subtle use of some red on the outlines of the trim work. That is a very nice touch, along with the red door.
Blue with gray stone works great. I think the stone for this home’s exterior is a bit dark, but it works. The balance of each material is very good. Either the stone should be a bit lighter or the blue a bit darker. There’s a bit too much contrast going on here to be perfect, but overall not bad.
Now here’s a blue exterior I could get very excited about, except they went with a soft yellow trim, which is a huge mistake. The trim needs to be white. The gray stone is fine, although I think all blue would be better in this instance.
Blue house done right. A nice dark blue (not too bright) with white trim. I’d prefer the gray/brown side shingle exterior under peak roof lines to be a natural wood stain but otherwise looks great.
Gorgeous home with outstanding blue for a home’s exterior along with white trim. The shingle siding on the upper floor works beautifully. I even have admitted that the red brick chimney works.
Sprawling blue/gray home on a hill with a red wood-stained deck. Overall it works, but it’s pretty neutral.
