Colonial settlers turned to nature for their vibrant color palette. Looking at the sky and ocean they came up with the chalky blue that covers many buildings throughout Colonial Williamsburg, most notably the Blue Bell Tavern.
This color works best on wooden Colonial-style homes. The symmetry of these homes keeps the look restrained. Paint trim a crisp white that plays up the blue.
