  1. I like your advice to use a dark, rich color for the trim in order to accent windows and doorways of your white home. It could help to do this as soon as you install the stucco trim so that you won’t have to paint it. A great way to get the color you want would be to talk to your installation contractor so that you can ensure you get the best option for the design and style of your house.

  2. Hello, can you tell me what the exterior paint color is on two of these homes– A Blissful Nest, and Home Sprucing? Just beautiful!!!

  3. What white color do you recommend for an exterior stucco house? And what is your favorite white interior color?

  4. Beautiful houses but could you please identify the white paint color on each house? any house? the advertisements destroy the pleasure of using this site.

  5. We are getting ready to paint our house white from a drab green/grey the original owners used. I know I want the house to be a true white. What are some of your fave exterior benjamin moore whites & what trim shade of white do you recommend using with it? Thanks so much. Your blog is beautiful!

  6. I was very impressed with your examples of small homes that are made to look bigger by using white paint. While I’m very satisfied with the way my house looks like from the inside, the duty red paint that it came with has me feeling like it could look a lot better from the outside. It’s not the biggest house in the neighborhood at all, so if I can have a painting service help me coat it with some nice white paint, it may help alleviate that image.
