Seeking out a more neutral siding for your home’s exterior can be a safe and stylish choice.
James Hardie has a vast palette of interesting neutrals, like Light Mist, Cobble Stone, Sail Cloth, Timber Bark and Arctic White, to name a few. These colors tend to rule the suburbs because they blend in while adding sophistication and interest.
Neutral does not mean boring, and once you choose your favorite neutral, you can make it pop with potted flowers—it’s the perfect pop of pick-me-up color for your subtle siding selection.
And because James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology resists damaging UV rays, you can feel secure and happy knowing your siding and trim colors will stay vibrant longer than with field applied paints.
Here are a few standout homes with true flower power:
Accents in Bold Red
This monochromatic beauty is clad in HardiePlank® lap siding in Arctic White with HardieTrim® boards in Arctic White. Surprisingly, this crisp white home does not come across boring or too traditional because of its accents. The bold wood door, the interesting fans and light fixtures, and of course, the glossy red pot filled with cheerful flowers that complement the white and red palette.
Classic and Inviting
The warm walkup to this home feels like an invitation to relax. It’s clad in straight-edge HardieShingle® siding in Cobble Stone paired with the HardieTrim boards in Arctic White and the classic black shutters. The space feels especially homey because of the overflowing flowers near the entryway. The maroon-glazed pot filled with white carnations and ivy complement the home’s classic palette for a cohesive and welcoming look.
Varied and Bright Collection
This side view of a front porch shows off the straight-edge HardieShingle siding in a bold beige green with Arctic White HardieTrim boards and antique lighting. These homeowners opted for several types of flower containers—including a flower box and hanging planter—all working with the home’s hues. This is an ideal way to showcase a varied plant collection in an organized way.
