What color scheme would work best with this brick?
September 15, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We would like to update the exterior of our home. The roof was done shortly after this picture and it now black. We are thinking of having the stucco done as well as the siding and are hoping to keep the brick. Dilemma is what color scheme will go with it. Any ideas?

Dark grey siding, light grey brick, black shutters.
Brick red siding, tan brick, black shutters.

Those are some combos I've seen around our new development that are nice.

Where is the stucco? What color would you describe the brick? Is it more of a cream or yellow?

The stucco is on both sides and the back of the house. Bright white. The brick shown in the picture on the front of the house is more of a cream than yellow. Can it be painted?

With the black roof, white all around, no shutters (they do not fit)…this picture but a black glossy front door to tie in with the roof.

Paint the whole house the same color regardless of material. Yes, brick can be painted. Trim white, add color pop to shutters and front door. It's a cute house.

I do agree, you really don't need shutters.

Thank you. I think the shutters should be removed as well. We have to fix areas of the stucco so that's why we were considering changing the stucco. Stick with white? I'll attach a picture of the back of the house. It needs help too.

What colors do you like? I just think you paint the whole thing the same color to make it cohesive. White trim, fun color front doors. (Front and back) I don't think it has to be white but something neutral (resale). Maybe a light gray. It's really whatever makes you happy. I love the arches over the garage doors! Maybe some flower boxes on the back under the lower window.

A darker beige than the brick, with a shiny black door. Garage doors should be same color as the house. Paint the trim a warm white or very light beige. Make sure beiges are in warm tones.

I'd also add black light fixtures to the garage and new black mailbox. Another idea is to add a black light post at the end of the driveway... Good luck!
