Taupe makes a terrific background color for a bigger, bolder hue — in this case, bright red-orange. Don’t be timid and go with too light a shade here, because exterior colors tend to look washed out in full sun.

in a mostly hot and sunny climate, a darker color will fade and age faster than a lighter hue, requiring more frequent repainting. It will also absorb more heat than a lighter hue, which can raise the cost to cool your home.,,,

Here’s an example of how taupe makes a terrific background color for a bigger, bolder hue — in this case, bright red-orange. Don’t be timid and go with too light a shade here, because exterior colors tend to look washed out in full sun. One caveat to this, however, is that if you live in a mostly hot and sunny climate, a darker color will fade and age faster than a lighter hue, requiring more frequent repainting. It will also absorb more heat than a lighter hue, which can raise the cost to cool your home.
