Updating modern style exterior


900 Airole Way - An MCM AD Stenger designed home in the Zilker neighborhood.

Clerestory windows, stacked stone facade and great roof lines show this amazing design.

Weatherboard houses are popular in Australia and these lining boards lend themselves to colour.

Greys with a definite underlying colour work well on these houses as the weatherboard creates natural shadow and therefore breaks up the colour.

3704 Greenway Street - This stunning Mid-Century home designed in 1951 by Louis Southerland of Page Southerland Page. 5901 Lookout Mountain Drive - MCM home in NW Hills on a 1/2 acre lush lot. 7515 Northwest Boulevard - A Mid-Century remodeled charmer in the hot St. Many updates throughout while maintaining its original design features.

A good tip is to paint a large piece of board with your chosen colour.

A neutral colour is one that doesn’t contain too much of one colour therefore making it easy to teem with other hues. Some may contain more red, yellow or green so you need to ensure that a colour that appears very neutral appeals to you in daylight.

Neutrals for exteriors need to be much greyer and darker than you would imagine.

Dark greys work best on rendered walls and look great when placed next to natural stone.

As with neutral browns, all grey hues have an underlying colour.

Great opportunity to own a piece of Austin architectural history.
