How to Choose an Exterior Paint Color for a Red Brick House?

Answer

To choose an exterior paint color that complements a red brick house, it's wise to research current trends in home architecture and 'curb appeal.' Light colors do not go well as the contrast is too great. Dark colors like charcoal gray go well. Look for the undertone in your brick and you will find that certain shades go better than others. Shades of brown and forest green go well with red brick as well.
