what do I do with the front of my house???
November 30, 2012
We repainted the house, but trying to find a color to go with the brick is really hard. The only color that we all agree on is the teal door. Any thoughts?? Landscaping is a separate issue!

your home is beautiful.To help pick paint colors it would help to have a closer photo of door/entry, shutters abd siding and brick because this photo doesn't really show the colors in your brick or the parts of the home you want to repaint....

I think most of the difference could come from the landscape. Check out the trees. Are they in good condition? You might want to remove the two closest to the street. Add varigated plant material and some burgandy.

If you are looking for a new paint scheme, I would go a cream on the siding and trim , deep red on the windows. That should brighten things up. All in all you have a good looking house,

We have a klinker brick front porch and we used Jojoba from Benjamin Moore and Navajo White for trim. Couldn't be happier. Red and green aren't just for Christmas anymore!

You have a beautiful gray roof. Pick a shade of gray that goes with the roof and use that to paint the house. It would be a big improvement over the green. The teal door that you want would look fine with gray trim.
