Need help choosing an exterior paint color for a brick ranch.

pennyncSeptember 18, 2013
We are having the exterior trim and shutters painted on our 1980's one-story brick ranch. Currently, the trim is BJM Navajo white, shutters are BJM Hale's Navy. We have installed interior shutters in BJM Decorator's White. We live off the road a bit, so it isn't terribly noticeable, but the two whites don't work too well together. The brick has a burned pinkish/orange tone, with some dark brown or blackish tones in there as well. The roof is black. I would like to paint the house trim white with black shutters and a black front door. I DON'T care for glaring whites, or blacks on a brick house, however, and am afraid the decorator's white may be just that as our exterior trim. I will say that the Navajo White works well with our grout color. Would appreciate any ideas about keeping the Navajo White against the interior shutters . . . or ideas about possible white shades to go better with the interior shutters. Also would appreciate any ideas for the black exterior shutters. Currently I am considering BJM Black. We are also replacing the garage door. Do we go with white (as well as the gutters) or do we paint the garage door the same color as the trim (if not white)?
