Exterior Paint colors that go with red brick

There are two ways of deciding Exterior Paint colors that go with red brick;

1) Try to match the color of the bricks, or find a close enough color that does not produce too much of a contrast.

Choose this option if you are interested in avoiding a bold color statement.  About 50% of our clients are simply not interested in choosing colors that are too different than what is normal or average in their area, or in the Northwest in general.  By choosing colors that somewhat match your bricks, you are avoiding the risk of offending anyone’s taste.   having say a light gray right next to red bricks might be the most pleasing configuration to me, but to the next person it might appear unusual and offend their sense of color and taste.  My recommendation

By choosing colors that somewhat match your bricks, you are avoiding the risk of offending anyone’s taste.   Having a light gray right next to red bricks might be the most pleasing configuration to me, but to the next person, it might appear unusual and offend their sense of color and taste.

My recommendation is unless your home is about to go on the market, and within the bounds of your HOA policies, choose what makes you happy and enjoy it!

Here we used to bricks as a transition between siding color and the front door color.  the door is the darkest deepest color on the home, then it transitions into a less dramatic reddish color of the bricks, and then we have a very pleasant Sherin Williams ® brown, which also has a few drops of red to give it a unique flavor.

 

 

2) Do your exterior colors need to match the brick?

This is an entirely different, but equally valid perception.  The bricks are meant to be different.  They are supposed to pop out.  They act as focal points and in some homes, they are virtually a bellyband or baseboards for the exterior.
