Issue with paint colors to accompany a pink/orange brick color
Josh AndersonFebruary 20, 2013
All of the masonite siding will likely be replaced with Hardie Board siding. The client would like a factory applied color if we do go with Hardie Board. Any thoughts on color would be appreciated, I am at a bit of a loss on how to tone down the overbearing brick color.

How about painting the rest of the house all white? Something like this perhaps? Catalyst Architects, LLC

The brick doesn't bother me as much as the solar panels on the front roof...Ugh!

Solar panels are the way of the future. Should probably get used to them.

I think White is a decent option, but I would like to go to the client with a few ideas. One thought was to use a complementary color scheme with a sage green similar to the attached photo. Thoughts on this option as well?

I would hate to have it know as the X-mas house ro I do not think that any additional red or orange colors would be used for the trim.
