Need help deciding what color goes with red bricks.
I love dark gray, but not sure would be a good choice.

I think it would be fine, as long as it isn't too close to the color of your roof.

I think it would be a great choice! How about a solid stain? Benjamin Moore has a great selection of solid stain colors, which is better for the cedar.

A gray-ish tone would compliment the brick color well.

Red brick with charcoal gray looks great.

Your brick has a variety of colors in it. I might choose one of them, perhaps lowering its intensity a bit and consider using it with perhaps an accent color that is quite different (maybe in the green family) for some details (window trim, entry door, things like that). The goal would be to try to subdue the color difference between the brick and the shingles to give the house a little more unified appearance. Let their textural difference between the brick and the shingles, and the fact that they are in different planes, provide the variety. I suggest you carry whatever color you choose for the wood shingles to the side with what may be cement shingles.
