Need exterior paint color guidance on red/cream brick home
Hello & thanks in advance for any advice!
We are doing a whole interior home remodel & updating the exterior (new roof, siding/posts/door paint, & were getting rid of the decorative shutters that frame 3 of the front windows) of our 20 year old home.
The interior of the house will have a more modern aesthetic w/ new quartz countertops, white & gray cabinets, LVT flooring, very light gray wall paint/white trim paint, (& we’re knocking out a couple walls for a bigger open floor plan).
*What I’m looking for advice on is the exterior paint color(s) for the trim & siding. We’ll be replacing the posts on the front porch as well as the doors & we would like to do a cedar colored stain on them. The paint needs to be Sherwin Williams brand & we definitely want to do a color in the more modern gray tones. We’ve got several paint swatches - Mt. Etna was one we loved but we worry it may be too dark. I need guidance on how to give the exterior an updated look that blends with the reddish cream(ish) brick w/ the gray(ish) mortar.
Below I’ll list again the existing exterior details & then the choices we’ve made on the new roof color (Owens Corning ‘Estate Gray’), etc.
I’ll also add pics of the existing exterior so you can see the brick & existing exterior paint & the pics of the stain color we want for posts as well as pics of some paint colors that may look good.
Reddish Cream Brick (in different light it can look sandy or even light brownish)
