Best HOA Springtime Paint Ideas

What Are the Best HOA Painting Ideas for San Francisco in Spring?

Subtle Spring Exterior Colors

If you want to outwardly celebrate spring, you’ll want to first focus on exterior painting. Most HOAs have fairly strict guidelines regarding which colors you can and cannot choose for your home’s face, so the options listed here might not be feasible for your particular situation. Still, the following exterior colors (or close variations) are perfect for spring.

Light Greige: Blending Beige and Gray

Some type of “greige” (a mix between gray and beige) can be found in nearly all HOAs. This color option is neutral in every way, providing an easygoing backdrop to the colorful flora that adorn springtime. A lighter greige might be best for this season to brighten up your exterior ever so slightly.

Honor New Life with Brown

Brown might not be the first color that comes to mind when thinking of springtime, but none of the flowers we enjoy would bloom without the season’s fresh soil. Choosing a shade of brown for your exterior is one way to tip your hat to nature’s blessings this spring, as long as it’s approved by your Northern California HOA.

Go Purely White

A bright white exterior will likely never go out of style, and it’s the perfect symbol of wiping the slate clean after a long winter. Best of all, most HOAs have no issue with white exteriors, even if you’re limited to a specific white shade (read our blog here on how to choose the right shade of white for your home).

Yield a Touch of Yellow

Grey, beige, brown, and white are all fine exterior options, but what if you want to add a little more color to your home this spring? While you won’t get away with a saturated, sunny yellow in most HOAs, you might be able to select a mild, muted yellow for your exterior. Ask your Northern California HOA if any yellow shades are on the table -- even a creamy off-white or warm beige can yield the results you desire.

A Light Blue Might Do

Blue skies and springtime go together like peanut butter and jelly, and any interior or exterior house painter can tell you that blue has become quite the popular color for homeowners everywhere. Once again, blue might not be on the menu in your Northern California HOA, but a light, subtle shade (i.e. a gray-blue) might be acceptable.

Introducing More Colors Into Your Interior

The limitations you face with exterior HOA painting don’t necessarily apply to interior painting. So, even if you can’t implement the springtime exterior colors you prefer, you have more leeway indoors. You might ask your interior painting services about bolder blues, brighter yellows, minty greens, and more -- pastels are especially suited for springtime, though they might look out of place during other seasons, so be mindful when selecting seasonal colors.
