In Texas, the land of wide-open spaces, it’s imperative that buildings and nature blend together seamlessly. Texas ranch homes are typically painted brown or tan to keep the focus on the landscape and the bright blue skies rather than the house.
Take this ranch-inspired color beyond Texas. A brick home painted a dark brown comes alive with charming pale blue shutters and doors. Or try the deep brown as an accent color on a beige home for a tone-on-tone color scheme.
