The previous owners painted out the trim, and I think they did a nice job choosing a colour to coordinate with the brick. They opted of a shade of ochre and it worked, but it wasn't my fave.
After many discussions about when we would get around to painting (should have done it before the babies started coming...oops!), we decided to go for it this year.
I relied on the Benjamin Moore Room Visualizer to choose colours for the brick, trim and door. Have you used it? It's pretty great. It allows you to customize different paint colours for different walls or surfaces. In my case, I was able to play with a different colour for the brick, trim, porch and door.
We still have more touch ups to do so I'll wait to show you the finished product, but here are a few of the versions I played with. I'm curious, what's your favourite? Any guesses as to what we went with?
