I need some exterior color suggestions...
Susan JacobsMarch 28, 2013
What do ya'll think? Having the house painted next week, and could use some suggestions. I am leaning towards a warm gray for the main color. I'd like the brick not to stand out so much (if that's possible!) I'd like to paint the slump block wall around the front patio, too. My house faces south, if that's helpful.

I see red brick (here and there) and a tan brick fence along with your grey-blue paint.... how about using a brick red on the house with tan on the trim? Or a sage green with tan-taupe trim?

You can post color sample from their site... save the images from them in your picture folder then post here as images.

@Stamps, I am currently feeling pulled in this direction, I am just consistently drawn to warm gray and fresh white. I was considering sage green too, but was told that it was complimentary to the brick, and I didn't want to highlight the brick. The top left is body, top right is door, bottom is trim.

We all like different things, which keeps things interesting...how dull the world would be if every house looked the same, right? (You and I have the same garage door and we will be purchasing a front door similar to yours, small world, huh?) Will you be doing the majority of the home in the lightest, medium or darker shade?

The medium shade would be the majority (currently what is now light blue and medium blue), the white would be the trim (everywhere that's dark blue now would be white) and the front door would be the darker shade. If you look at the pictures closely, you can see a sample of that medium shade has been put up on the left side of the white wire plant holder (doesn't look much different than the one on the right).

@Stamps, great minds think alike :) Would you do the garage door in white, or something more unexpected (like maybe using the dark accent somewhere?)
