    You did a wonderful job of picking out the paint colors!!! I am so glad our house is totally brick (and stone) so we don’t have to pick out any paint colors!!! Lol

    The house looks great! What is your opinion on a soft white trim with red brick?

    1. Christin | My Homier Home says:

      Thanks so much! I think soft white trim could look really good as long as it had a warm undertone. I would definitely do some testing first.

    Absolutely love the color with the red brick. Can you please share the color used on the trim and garage?

    1. Christin | My Homier Home says:

      Thanks so much Shawna! Absolutely! It’s Gauntlet Gray by Sherwin Williams 🙂

    What color did you use on the main part of the house? I saw the name of the color used for the trim and the garage. Thanks

    1. Christin | My Homier Home says:

      The main color of the siding is Sherwin Williams Dorian Gray! Let me know if you have any other questions 🙂

    Christin – GREAT JOB with the colors – your home looks fabulous! Question – if your garage doors were front facing vs side, do you think you would have still gone with the Gauntlet Gray or might you have possibly considered Iron Ore to tie-in with the shutters and front door? Thanks!

      Great question Kevin and thank you!! Honestly, I like to visually see it… sometimes dark garage doors can look out of place depending on the other colors of the home. When I drive around my neighborhood, I’m always critiquing 😂, but I think that could look good! Is your brick a darker red too?

      1. Kevin Lewis says:

        Hi Christin – thanks for your response! My brick is similar to yours in hue. I may give some of your colors a try when I finally undertake this painting project! 😉

    Thank you for sharing…you are spot on with the struggle with what to do with a great looking dark red brick. The trend is currently a lot of whites and grays however taking the mindset to commit to painting a great looking red brick to white is hard to digest because just not sure of the outcome. I took the risk of painting the brick on the fireplace brick on interior house white with the rest of house SW agreeable gray and was the best decision.
    I have been researching online and taking pics in neighborhoods of home looking at exterior color schemes and what you have done looks perfect.
    I have just one question which maybe I missed have missed in your specs and responses.
    The under eves, overhangs which include patios, did you paint SW Irone?

  7. You did a beautiful job! What color is the roof? I can’t quite tell. Thank you!

      Thank you!! We did charcoal gray!

    I love the color choices. What color were your windows? I would like to use these colors but my windows are dark brown and I am unsure how that will look.

    1. Christin | My Homier Home says:

      These are actually black windows we got when we replaced them, so not painted, but tricorn black is a popular color for trim too.

  9. Hi! I’m wondering if you painted your exterior window trim in Iron Ore? All of my window trim pieces are white, but I would love to have black or bronze trim…do people just paint over the white or do you have to buy new windows? I’m not a big fan of painting black on the exterior trim around the window, when all of the other white pieces are still visible. I hope that makes sense…I’m not real familiar with the terminology of window parts!
    Thank you and your house looks gorgeous!!

      We actually got new windows, so they aren’t painted, but I would definitely recommend it! It’s a gorgeous color.
