    So what colors look good on dollhouse exteriors? I just got one for my birthday and need to decide how to paint it.

    Depends on the style.

    Modern/traditional houses look good in white, off white or yellows.

    If you have a Victorian feeling one, the more colorful the better. Being sure to paint the gingerbreading and accents in a color that stands out from the base color.

    Home Depot or Lowes has great selections to use to match up the right colors for historical houses. I would check there for inspiration.

    its got no real style. Its just a huge 3 story house with no real style. Its got a little balcony on the third floor that looks victorian. You can tell it used to be a kids dollhouse. It has lots of windows that have the inter stuff to make them into squares but some are broke.
