I have ideas spinning in my head and they all include painting that brick. Should we whitewash it? Should we paint it a light gray? What about the new siding, what color should that be? Of course, the trim will be white. Our roof is new, so that's not going anywhere. Some of my ideas came from these pictures, some from Pinterest, some from houzz.com
This is my absolute favorite image of whitewashed brick. I love how faded it looks.
See how charming it looks? I couldn't find many existing pictures of houses with half brick/half siding, but these pictures helped me to see colors together.
This one I like because of the neutral brick, which would let me do any color shutters: white, black, a darker gray, etc.
I love the gray brick in this picture with the black shutters; it would match the roof and look great! I could do a fun door color, like turquoise! ;)
What do you guys think? I'm torn! We don't have to make a decision now, but I am a planner & I like to know where we're headed before we get there :)
