Stucco, a cement-like mixture made of sand, lime, and water, has been around for centuries, but it's just as beautiful today as it was eons ago. Like all siding options, stucco has pros and cons when it comes to cost, durability, and aesthetic, but we think a stucco house instantly transports you to a vacation-like destination.

This stunning home from sansarc.studio is painted a clean, crisp white that feels utterly Mediterranean and coastal. The arched metal windows and doorways add a modern, industrial feel to the home while the clay brick fencing keeps it earthy and breezy.
While painting stucco white may mean a little extra effort in the power washing department, it's a cool, modern choice for any home.

Bright, colorful homes are common in desert areas and it's clear to see why. This bold pink stucco home from Taco Architecture is eye-catching and fun, and the perfect inspiration for your next stucco paint job. The bright pink hue against the wooden shutters feels earthy and warm.

Don't Be Afraid to Go Dark

Experiment With Shutters
This Spanish colonial curtisandwindham is giving us major European vibes with its light tan paint color and deep green shutters. If you want to add a little color to your stucco home without a total facelift, consider painting your shutters a darker, more vibrant shade to truly stand out.

Dusty Light Pink
There's just something about a dusty pale pink house, like this one pictured by stateson.werner.house, that feels welcoming and homey. Light pink is a great choice for anyone who wants to add a little color to their stucco home without going too bold or bright.

Lime Green Accents
We love this white stucco home from cottage_a_day that gives off a wonderfully beachy vibe, with a twist. Though the house is a typical white, the lime green front door and garage add a little playfulness to the style and a major upgrade to the curb appeal.
