Most good fireplace paint colors feature a variety of colors to create a theme, such as taupe, tan, beige and cream, which create a shade known as Twilight Taupe, as noted by BrickAnew. Another good fireplace color theme includes tan, gray and a yellowish cream, which is sold by Brick Anew as Frosted Sunshine.
Another good theme for a fireplace is Misty Harbor, which uses light and medium gray highlights with a cream-colored base. This particular color works well in homes with cool color schemes, notes BrickAnew.
The Twilight Taupe theme works well with a tan and beige palette, while Frosted Sunshine works well in homes with light tan or pale yellow color schemes.
