Sadly, willing to admit defeat and repaint--but only the light color.
Can you suggest some better ways to transition from the dark brick to the white shingles, either with a different color (but I'm not a beige fan) or through some other tricks? Thanks!
We went with white shingles bc of their energy-saving reflectivity, and although the brick has some tiny white flecks, it's not enough to tie the parts together. The gutters have yet to be painted. This is a new carriage house in a Victorian neighborhood, behind an old house with orange-y brick whose trim will be repainted in a similar schema.
