  • By far the most frequent question I get is about paint colors. I totally get it. Choosing paint colors, whether for a single piece of furniture, a room, or your entire home, can be a daunting process. I love to paint – no surprise there, and I have painted and repainted (and repainted again) every room in my home.

Craftsman-style architecture in the United States dates back to the early 1900s and came about as an outgrowth of the English Arts and Crafts movement. Stressing the importance of simplicity, function and craftsmanship as well as blending into the natural landscape surrounding the building, the Craftsman home became the embodiment of a new of architecture, eschewing the Victorian Era architecture and machine-made production.

Choosing color in your home can be tricky, and it can take a while to find the right scheme for your table. Pinterest comes in handy for this. Just make a board and pin pictures of tables you see. Or go old-school and create a notebook. We also love browsing paint chips at the local hardware store for fresh, exciting color combos. Add interest to your living room with a fresh paint color. Browse our living room color inspiration gallery to find living room ideas & paint colors.

The name “Craftsman' derived from the title of a magazine published by furniture designer Gustav Stickley between 1901 and 1916. If a house was built using the actual plans published in Stickley's magazine, it was considered a true Craftsman home. However, other magazines, pattern books and mail-order house catalogues began publishing home plans with Craftsman-like details and soon the word “Craftsman' began to mean any home that expressed the ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement, even the ever-popular Bungalow.

Specifically, the term American Craftsman or Craftsman style are used to note the architecture, interior design and decorative arts that were widespread between the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods, roughly 1910 to 1925.

Painting Tips for Craftsman-style Homes:

  • The autumn color palette was extremely popular as a source of color inspiration for Arts and Crafts era homes as this was keeping in line with the Arts & Crafts philosophy on color use.
  • What color is the roof? Typical Craftsman roof colors are natural brown, green and red.
    • With a brown roof, ideas for traditional body colors are olive, dark green and russet or the lighter bungalow colors of the 1920s such as yellow, orange and sage green.
    • With a green roof, work with brown, yellow and red body colors, both light and dark.
    • With a red roof, consider browns, greens, yellows, tans and olives as well as blue-greens, grays and whites.
  • Accent and trim colors
    • Most Craftsman-style homes have little architectural detail
    • A typical building in the Arts & Crafts era had one major trim color, sometimes a minor trim color and one or two accent colors
    • Try for contrast in trim color
    • Using dark colors for the body and trim diminishes the overall effect. Try a medium contrast color combination, not extreme, as these homes are known for softer colors.
  • Doors
    • Most Craftsman-era homes have two or three doors. The main entry door or front door was often stained. Good modern choices for the front door are medium brown or another accent color in the palette. Don't paint these doors hunter green or burgundy as typical in other styles of subdivision homes, as these colors are inappropriate for the Craftsman-era front door.
  • Windows
    • Generally, the window sash has been painted differently than the window trim.
  • Eaves
    • Most Craftsman-style eaves were painted the trim color to help outline the building.
  • Front porches
    • The porch typically has its colors pulled from the rest of the overall color scheme.
      • Columns are often painted a lighter tone.
      • Railings and spindles can either be painted in a single color, the trim color or two colors. When painting with two colors, the railings are typically painted the darker color.
      • Ceilings are painted off-white to reflect the light downward, or finished in the darker paint color or stain.
      • Floors on porches are typically painted in dark grays, reds, browns and greens.
