Suggestions on exterior paint and siding?
December 27, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We bought this fixer upper over 5 years ago and all of our focus has been on making the inside clean and livable. This spring I would like to focus in the outside. The bottom half of the house is brick and the top half is a wood siding painted red. My husband would like to paint the brick and either paint the siding (short term) or install vinyl siding (long term) but I'm wondering about colors. Is there a color that would coordinate with the red brick well or should we paint it all the same color and if so, what would be recommended? How about the shutters and front doors? I added a picture of the side because of the low roof line which has been a dilemma in choosing a contrasting shade for siding and brick. Thoughts?
