Earth-toned Exterior Colors

Earth-toned Exterior Colors

When it comes to home color trends, this year designers are looking the way of earth tones. Colors inspired by nature—tans, greens, browns and beige—make up the warm, rich and popular palette.


The understated earthy hues add softness to a home’s exterior, making them feel homey-yet-elegant. The collection of colors is versatile, too, so any accent (be it a door, shutters or landscaping) can stand out against the earthy canvas.


And if you clad your home in James Hardie® siding and trim, you’ll be happy to know that whichever earthy shade you choose from the ColorPlus® Technology palette will stay vibrant longer compared to field applied paint. James Hardie’s ColorPlus Technology is specifically engineered to help resist damaging UV rays, so your color will stay vibrant longer with less maintenance.


Here’s a closer look at homes flaunting an earth-tones exterior, including cladding in James Hardie’s ColorPlus Technology Autumn Tan, Sandstone Beige, Heathered Moss and Woodstock Brown.


Beige Meets Brick

HardiePlank® lap siding in Autumn Tan clads this Midwest suburban home. The warm beige pairs well with the home’s neutral brick.


Mossy Main Hue

We love the look of this neighborhood bungalow sided in HardiePlank lap siding in Heathered Moss. The bold HardiePanel® vertical siding in vivid Evening Blue truly pops against the earthy main siding color choice.


Sandstone Standout

This quaint Cape Cod is clad in HardiePlank lap siding in Sandstone Beige with HardieTrim® boards in crisp Arctic White. The natural wood outdoor furniture on the porch feels cozy and inviting. Porch swing, here we come.


Shades of Brown

The warm and rustic Woodstock Brown HardiePanel vertical siding on this home is easy on the eyes. The darker brown shutters pop against the lighter main shade.
