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 limit 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.

Here are some town by town resources that you might find useful – they are in order by location from South to North:

Duxbury Rural & Historic Society

Pembroke Historical Society

Hanover Historical Society

Norwell Historical Society

Marshfield Historical Society

Scituate Historical Society

Cohasset Historical Society

Hingham Historical Society

Rockland Historical Commission

Weymouth Historical Society

Quincy Historical Society

Braintree Historical Society

Milton Historical Society

Canton Historical Society

Avon Historical Commission

Randolph Historical Commission

Stoughton Historical Society

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 designer has experience placing colors in parts of your exterior which makes your newer home seem vintage and unique.
