What’s The Story in Balamory? Five Exterior Wall Treatments and Paint Colour Ideas For Your Home

Back in 2002 to 2005, BBC Scotland produced Balamory for Cbeebies, a fictional children’s program following the lives of characters that lived in a multitude of brightly coloured houses. We decided to take inspiration from this and, as a provider of external wall treatments for homes, post five different colour ideas that would make your house the most stylish property on your street.

Inject Pops of Colour with Turquoise Blue and Sugary Pinks

It cannot be denied that, although blue connotes feelings of calm and tranquillity, a bright turquoise blue is cheery, vibrant and exciting. Whereas the saccharine hues of pastel and fuschia pinks add a mixture of playfulness, youth and romance to the exterior of your home.

Bright colours perfectly suit the slick angular lines of mid-century architecture, and a quick slick of blue or pink allows you to easily turn your home into an abode worthy of the Hollywood Hills.

Blend with the Outdoors with Sage Greens and Burnt Orange

If you prefer your home to complement rather than stand out from the natural, choose muted rustic tones like sage greens, burnt oranges and ochre to give your home warm earthy tones.

Accent these exterior walls with off white window frames to give your home a quintessential cottage-like appearance.

Stand Out From the Crowd With Postbox Red and Sunny Yellows

Why not bring a smile to your neighbour’s faces and paint your house a bright red, orange or yellow hue? Or, why not paint your home the 2019 colour of year – coral? Perfectly contrasting with a bright blue sky, these sunny and summery tones can give your home a Mediterranean style feel all year round, transporting you to the sun-drenched coasts of Positano and Portofino.

Make Your Home A Tranquil Haven with Lilacs and Greys

If you aren’t fond of the 2019 colour of the year, why not look to the past and choose the 2018 colour – lilac? Offering an equal mixture of calming connotations and royal tones, a lilac or purple-hued home will show your neighbours who’s boss.

Yet, if you want your home to feel like your safe haven to escape to, tranquil tones like soft greys can achieve just that.

Opt for Traditional and Natural Creams, Whites and Browns

If you don’t want your home to stand out, but you think it still needs a fresh lick of paint and the added bonus of weather protection, then speak to us at Kingdom Coatings.
