Pale Yellow Brick House
March 31, 2014 in Photo Questions
Help! We are using our tax return to paint our house. The majority of it is a pale yellow brick but the people before us built in the carport and that part is wood, as well as each end of the house (We're only painting the wood, not the brick). It's a single story ranch style home. We have a white garage door. I'm really nervous about picking a color and hating it so I could really use some help. I would attach a picture but I don't know how.

Kaley, I would take a picture of your home in to Benjamin Moore & ask for advice, & also holds the paint chips up to your pic. Brick colors can carry a lot, so without setting them it's hard to advise. Are you trying to cover all the yellow? If so, all you need is a color that looks good with your particular brick color. (When in doubt, I think stark white always looks sharp with brick. But for some bricks, other colors are even better.)

Paint the entire house, including the brick. Buy several samples of paint you think might work and paint 4x4 sections on the house. Label them a, b, c etc. then look at them at different times of the day and in different light conditions. Ask your friends to come by and vote. Then pick the one you like best and tell your spouse/partner you have better taste in paint than he/she does. Always works for me ;)
