The South's top architects share their best combos for classic home exteriors.
“For a traditional American home, try a deep green on the shutters and a high-gloss dark red on the front door. Paint all other solid doors to match the shutters. Have French doors and trim matched with an opaque sample of the whitewash. The combination is light and fresh with high contrast and punch.”
