What paint color??

Posted by Emmo (My Page) on

We are gong to repaint the shakes and garage door (basically repaint the blue part) Should we go with another color? I have no idea what would look good. We kinda liked the blue but we aren't sure this is the best blue for the house... I've gone driving around trying to find houses with similar color bricks to see what color their houses are, but I don't really see many houses with this pinkish red brick, so I can't figure out what will look good.... ideas?

Sorry the pic is so dark. It was the only one I could find.

RE: What paint color??

A close up of the brick would be helpful to see the colors better. The brick and the roof really need to drive the color selection. I'm thinking of a grayed down green to contrast with the brick, but it's hard to say with this pic. Maybe a BM saybrook sage.

I'd suggest posting in Home Decor where there are more frequent posters with good color sense.
