Spanish-style homes are known for red roof tiling, stucco siding, and arched doorways and passageways. These characteristics lend distinction to a home's exterior. Your exterior colour choices, whether off-white, peach or beige, can serve to enhance that sense of distinction. However, harmonising with the surrounding environment, including neighbouring homes, is a consideration.


Certainly, one of the safest exterior colour choices for the Spanish-style home is off-white. Whether you define the colour as cream, bone or eggshell, it complements the traditional red roof tiling and is unlikely to clash with trees, plants, shrubbery or neighbouring homes. You might choose to match the roof tiling in door or window trim, or to eschew trim altogether. An off-white exterior colour choice tends to have the effect of promising a cool interior.

Peach stucco is viewed as a daring choice in some areas of the United States. But in southern California, for example, it is quite the norm. In fact, it is something of an architectural hallmark for this region. Even restaurants and businesses adopt this choice. Peach harmonises with red roofing and can prove a refreshing counterpoint to exterior landscaping. Trim colour choices may include red or brown hues, such as burnt orange, deep terra-cotta or dogwood.

Beige is another safe exterior colour choice for the Spanish-style home. It provides a gentle counterpoint to the red colour of the roof and blends well with lawn, foliage and neighbouring homes. Choices range from sandy to golden to creamy beige hues. Beige tones tend to proffer a homey feel and can be complemented with terra-cotta, taupe or muted blue trim.
