Historic Home Colors

When Frank Lloyd Wright was dreaming up plans for his homes, he had a certain color palette in mind. The colors were reminiscent of natural materials (stone, clay, wood) and nature itself. Color choices are just as important now as they were during the home's creation to maintain the integrity of its creator's vision.

In Oak Park, Illinois, historic homes abound. Whether it's a Craftsman, American Foursquare, or Queen Anne, one must find the right colors to showcase the home's historic significance.
When choosing colors for the interior of your home, think warmth, natural and subdued.

Most paint companies have specific sections in their color wheels for Historic colors. These handy collections will help you simplify your color selection process and ensure just the right colors for your historic home.
