On the exterior of a home, Persimmon makes for a dynamic accent on trim, doorways and windows. The combination of red and orange can suit a variety of hues: slate, misty green, white, sand, taupe, chocolate brown and navy.


On the inside of your home, if you’re looking to create a rich, powerful statement, coat your walls in a medium shade of Persimmon and balance with cream, gold, sky blue, charcoal, elephant gray, turquoise or fuchsia. This choice isn’t for the faint of heart, but will provide an instant boost to anyone who walks through the door.
