Help for this dated exterior!
May 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
This is our house . . . it is in a fantastic neighborhood, on a double lot . . . but I think the exterior looks so dated. We have decided to paint both the brick and the siding. I Know a lot of people have strong feelings against painting brick, but this is a smooth, 1-dimensional concrete-colored brick and I think it makes it look very dated. My ideas include painting the brick and aluminum siding above the same color to get rid of the two-toned look. Any thoughts on these ideas or possible paint colors. I'm thinking about Sherwin Williams 6173 for the body, white trim and shutters in SW 7062 or another really deep, rich almost black/blue shutters. Thoughts?!?!?!?
