Orange: With Pantone naming Tangerine Tango the colour of the year for 2012, it’s never been a better time to think about a merry orange citrus shade. Think about adding a fitting thing, such as the picnic table in this picture, by painting a rocking chair or your terracotta pots to coincide.

Orange is has always been popular in modern and contemporary architecture. This one excels against the neutral colours of the outside of the home.

This arched Dutch door with 9 panes is among the most charming I have seen, and its glossy red paint job is like a new coat of lipstick for the house’s face.

Yellow: Yellow can take away the doldrums in weather. In foggy San Francisco, the doorways on this duplex are cheerful and welcoming.

A gold color of yellow works very nicely with conventional structure. The strictest of preservation boards in New England will probably give thumbs up to a colonial golden yellow hue.

Green: This townhouse’s lime door makes it a standout that will make it effortless for the visitors to find.
