Exterior brick houses can be lightened up with an off-white color for the wood trim and khaki for the shutters. Another idea is to paint brick in varying colors such as sea foam, beige, brown and orange to match the dark red trim and terra cotta porch. Instead of just painting the brick a light pink color, the owner can add a light layer of stucco to add texture to the walls. This paired with earth-toned bricks above the windows and gray-blue trim gives the house a country cottage look.

An individual can paint the bricks of a house historical gray while painting the trim white and the shutters a darker color to match the two-gabled roof's shingles. He can also paint the brick in two-tone colors. For instance, the traditional brick color can be matched with dark gray-blue tones and offset with cedar siding. Both the brick and trim can be painted a white dove color with revere pewter shutters and dark gray shingles. Even the siding on this house is painted white dove.
