exterior color for ranch style house in browns and beiges
Consider your surroundings. If your house is surrounded by trees, it would look natural painted in earth tones but out of place in pastels. In cold climates, bright colors might not work well, but in the sunbelt they might be appropriate. Generally, reserve bright colors for the trim, doors, and shutters.
