For exterior schemes with three colors, try the 60/30/10 rule: Designate 60% of the facade for the dominant color, use a secondary hue for 30%, and paint the remaining 10% in an accent color. In many cases with brick homes, the color of the brick itself serves as the dominant color.
If you’re stuck, consider these combinations for exterior colors with brick that’s red, orange, neutral, or white. • Sage green + taupe: Because red and green are complementary colors, these exterior paint colors work well with red brick homes. In a muted shade like sage, the green brings out the color of the brick without overwhelming it.
