    Default Historic home exterior color

    Hello. I'm wondering if anyone can provide resources for researching what exterior paint colors were used during certain time periods? I have a home built in approximately 1910 that needs to be repainted and as we live in an historic neighborhood, we'd like to paint it with an historically accurate color, if possible. However, we are struggling to find out what colors are appropriate. Are there any books, web sites or resource guides for this sort of research? Thanks!

    See if this gives you any help http://www.ci.detroit.mi.us/historic...uide/color.htm

    If you are in an historic district, you may want to see if there is a district commission and if they have approved colors.
