From the Maitland Mercury report:
Residents looking to renovate cottages and mansions across Maitland can now access an online tool designed to help with colour scheme guidelines.
The Maitland City Council initiative provides images and examples of different architectural styles and includes colours typical to the principal periods of residential architecture in the city.
“They are intended to be informative, motivating and go some way to help owners in designing schemes,” Maitland City Council’s heritage officer Clare James said.
“Painting a home helps maintain and protect the buildings fabric, but can also transform its external appearance.
“General residential colour guidelines are available elsewhere, but we believed that the richness of Maitland’s architectures warranted something special. As such, the guidelines are geared towards the styles of buildings particular to Maitland.”
The residential colour scheme guidelines can be found online at maitland.nsw.gov.au.
For more information phone Clare James on 49349832 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
