I had no idea a green exterior color for a home was as popular as it is. I had to weed out loads and settled on this collection. I chose the examples in this article so that it would be a diverse set of house styles as well as all shades of green (dark to bright to light to mint etc.).
while I prefer blue, yellow, white and red exteriors, green works. I totally get it if it’s your color; I don’t think you can go wrong unless it’s too bright. While I like blue and yellow, it needs to be subdued.
Suburban house with stone and green vinyl siding. The front porch spans partial width of the home. Interesting L-shaped garage (2 separate bays).
Quaint home with greenish-brown exterior siding and stone exterior along with green shutters and stone chimneys.
Large home in a suburb with green exterior combined with red brick and stone exterior. I find 3 different exterior materials usually a bit much, but it actually works for this home.
Green McMansion with green exterior shutters. The exterior is a combination of green stucco and grey stone.
Arguably this is a brown house but it leans toward green so I put it here. It’s a stylish Mountain style home with green wood siding. I think the exterior would be improved with more of the natural wood on the exterior such as the trim (the wood tone you seen for the support beams at the porch and garage doors).
I love natural wood and don’t mind green, but I find the reddish wood here is jarring in relation to the dull green. Conceptually it’s a good exterior but it just doesn’t look as good as it could.
I fear this green is far too bright and there’s far too much of it. The white trim is good, but this green should be relegated to an accent color only.
Soft green wood siding along with grey stone make up the exterior of this home. Contrast is provided with the dark gray garage door and front door. Overall it looks good, although the orange leaning shingles are a bit bright and distract from the subtle exterior color scheme.
As you can see, soft green goes well with grey stone, which is the case here. I also like the green and white carriage style garage doors. It’s a nice touch. The white trim also adds contrast to the overall exterior color scheme.
I really like this green tone with vertical siding combined with river rock exterior. What’s particularly interesting is I usually don’t like river rock exteriors (or fireplaces) but it looks fabulous here with the vertical green siding. This is a green house exterior to take note of.
Well, it’s too much green. There’s a reason the nicer looking examples have quite a bit of stone on the exterior because when it’s all green, it’s too much, especially a dark green like this home. Combine that with the spectacular sprawling lawn and it just doesn’t work as well as it could or should.
Here is a fabulous soft green with stone exterior and plenty of white trim contrasted with a dark gray roof. This exterior is outstanding.
This example works well. It’s a rustic color scheme. I think the natural wood trim should be a bit more pronounced to offer more contrast.
The green is a touch too pastel for my liking but it’s made worse with the bright natural wood, which contrasts too sharply with the green. Sadly, this is a bad example of a green house exterior.
Dark green house with dark grey shutters and white trim as well as white shingle siding. The solid white shingle siding doesn’t work. It’s too much white. I understand what they’re trying to do, but it distracts the eye.
This tropic green with grey stone works well. It’s an attractive combination. I like how the roof color matches the light stone exterior for a uniform look offset with the green siding exterior.
I really like the vertical siding in green. This is another example of it and it works great. Again, the green is offset with light grey stonework. Very nice example of a home with green exterior. Of course with landscaping like that, it’s hard not to like the house. Talk about stunning gardens.
Grey green makes up the exterior of this home and it works. Grey is always a safe exterior color and when offset with white trim, you have a winner. The thing is, it’s safe. Attractive? Yes. Could it be better? Yes.
This green makes a statement. It’s the brightest example in our collection. I don’t like it except for the fact it’s chosen deliberately to be a bright house. I tip my hat off to people who want to be different in this way to liven up a neighborhood because it’s playful and I like playful in design.
Mint green heritage home wood exterior with thin white trim and a red door make up the exterior of this handsome home.
Green verging on grey with plenty of white trim on this contemporary works very well. Whoever chose this green has a good eye for color selection.
Earthy green exterior along with natural wood trim make up this large home’s exterior. It works, although it wouldn’t be my first pick.
I love the grey green stucco on this home because it’s nicely contrasted with plenty of soft white. I know purists would criticize the curved roof line, but I like it.
I love this green home in my town of Vancouver, BC. It has a great beach feel (Vancouver has many beaches) and it’s a great design for a narrow lot. Plenty of white trim offset the green along with the multiple balconies with white railings. Very cool house that stands out nicely without being garish.
Almost perfect until you get to the bright green shutters. This home would be much improved with dark grey shutters. I don’t mind the bright green door (I love bright front doors) but the green shutters look out of place. The rest of the exterior looks great though. I even like the ornate roof trim at roof peaks.
I normally like wood shingle exterior but it’s too ornamental with this green. When going with a green exterior, the wide vertical siding looks much better.
Brown green home in the country on a large wooded lot. It’s not a bad pick but wouldn’t be my first choice.
I love this home’s design so much I could be forgiving of many colors. I find this green a touch bright, but it’s not terrible and it’s nicely offset with plenty of white. I think some stone exterior would make the exterior better.
Brown green McMansion with white trim. Like grey, this is a safe house exterior paint color.
Very soft blue green home with white trim. It lacks contrast with the white but it works. Another safe color exterior.
Yellow green stucco home exterior with some stonework. The flower planter boxes are a nice touch along with the white carriage garage doors… although the garage doors could benefit from a touch of color.
A plain green exterior for a fairly plan, but not unattractive house. The grey garage doors look great. For this home’s design, the exterior is nicely done and doesn’t detract at all. Overall, a nice suburban home built a couple decades ago.
Pop! Ornate with eclectic color scheme make up the exterior of this large Victorian home. I think the pink and purple clash but that’s probably intentional. The homeowners are having fun really dressing up this already over-the-top house.
Quaint and attractive describes this suburban house with green wood shingle exterior combined with grey stone exterior. Again, the green shingle exterior doesn’t work as well as other colors such as blue or grey (I love dark blue shingle exteriors).
Here’s an example where the green shingle exterior works great because it’s not the most prominent part of the home exterior. It sits in the background to the jutting garage wing which is a yellow green. I like the two similar color tones matched with beige trim. It works and it’s a bit different.
Stunning green shade with white trim and garage door make this home fabulous, especially as it sits along a row of bright homes in a warm climate. This is a fun community of homes that work really well. I love this type of street where it’s playful, the exteriors are still professionally done so it works well.
