Historic Colors of the South Shore
The South Shore is rich with history and the colors of homes on the South Shore tend to reflect that. We’ve worked with Sherwin Williams to create a palette of exterior colors that are specific to the South Shore, and allows your home fit right in.
Your town’s Historical Society may have a say in your choice of exterior colors
Many historic homes on the South Shore are bound to certain exterior colors. We have extensive experience helping you choose appropriate colors and that will be approved by your town’s historical society. Our designer can help you choose something to meet these specifications, while also bringing a unique look to your historic home.

Newer homes look great in historic colors too!
Because the color we paint rarely changes the price we charge you, choosing a palette for your new home that meets a town’s historical colors, is a common request we get. Our free color consultant has experience suggesting colors on parts of your exterior which makes your newer home seem vintage and unique. She will never push you to choose a color that is “not you,” but will listen to what you want and help you choose a color that fits your vision.
