FRESH and Natural - Free Tool to Help You Add Nature Inspired Colors on the Exterior of Your Home

To coincide with National Curb Appeal Month in August, DaVinci Roofscapes® has launched a new ebook, “FRESH and Natural” on their company website. Authored by color specialist Kate Smith with Sensational Color, the free online tool helps homeowners add top-down nature inspired colors to the exteriors of their homes.

Showcasing roofing colors in the Nature Crafted Collection --- including Black Oak, Aged Cedar and Mossy Cedar --- Smith explains how to select harmonious component colors for a home’s main exterior, trim and accents. She also offers color expertise for window exteriors, entry doors and millwork.

“This ebook follows the same rules of thumb as appear in the Top Down ColorTM Visualizer from DaVinci Roofscapes,” says Smith, chief color maven at Sensational Color. “Both color tools work together to help in the selection of coordinated colors from the roof to the ground of a home. This is the smartest way to add unified curb appeal to a house.”

Fresh Approach to Aged Roofing Colors
The FRESH and Natural ebook launches with a review of the five key factors people should consider when selecting color palettes for a home exterior:
Fixed Features
Regional Colors
Environment and Surroundings
Style of the Home
Historic Colors 

Smith then illustrates how the process works when starting with Nature Crafted Collection colors on the roof. She shows five unique color combinations with guiding explanations for each of the roofing colors of Black Oak, Aged Cedar and Mossy Cedar.

“The roofing colors in the Nature Crafted Collection capture a moment in time when a real wood shake is perfectly aged,” says Smith. “This ‘captured’ roof color will stay forever on the home, so it’s important for homeowners to select exterior colors that will complement their roof selection.”

Free Ebooks 
The newest ebook from DaVinci, the color leader in composite roofing, is the third in a series of free ebooks dedicated to providing people with guidance on adding color to their home exteriors.  

The “FRESH Home Exteriors Color Guide” offers five steps for finding the perfect hue for a home exterior. The “FRESH Color Schemes for Your Home Exterior” reviews seven different home styles and provides “top down” color recommendations for each style. Now, the “FRESH and Natural” ebook offers color insights when selecting composite shake roofing in the Nature Crafted Collection.

Each ebook (along with the Top Down Color Visualizer tool) can be found for free at the “Color & Inspiration” section of the DaVinci website.  

“Using these free color tools can be both fun and empowering,” says Smith. “They take the guess work out of crafting a pleasing exterior color palette for the home and help create increased curb appeal.”
