Due to Katrina, we are remodeling a 30 year old brick house which we would like to update to modern clean colors both inside and outside. The exterior brick is a shade of red that we are tired of looking at and we want to paint it a nice modern shade of brown, tan, or some sort of grey tone. Think modern, clean look here! We are found of most colors found in most Starbucks around the country. So, my question is, as I am sure some here have painted a brick exterior, give me your tips, thoughts, and ideas on how to make this go well. Also, any color suggestions you may have. One side note, the trim due to the rain gutter color will have to be white, I would like to change it but it is already in place so any color choice will have to go with white. PLMK-Thanks. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
