Need help with paint colors for 1950s brick ranch house

Posted by lahuster (My Page) on

I'm going to paint my blonde brick 1950s house and would love some ideas for paint colors; I'm thinking of a taupe or warm stone color...and I like the quality of Duron and Benjamin Moore but would love your input on exterior paints as well. Roof color most likely will be "weathered wood" - a nice neutral roof color. Will have standard shutters and a 3 light frosted glass front wooden front door.

Any tips for paint colors??? Assume window trim is white...

I love, love, love blonde brick. It has such a lovely golden color. Are you sure you can't work with it instead of painting over it? It has a great midcentury style to it that I find appealing.

What color is blonde brick? I've always described our 1964 brick ranch as orangey -- it's kind of a light terra cotta color.
