The Perfect Paint Colors to Compliment Exposed Brick

The unfinished, industrial look is in, meaning exposed brick is all the rage. The unique look of these open walls makes decorating somewhat intimating. But in reality, there are a plethora of vibrant color options that nicely compliment exposed brick.

Red with Red

Pair those dusty red bricks with a vibrant touch of red paint. The rich hue will pair well with the varying red tones in the bricks. Who said too much of one color was a bad thing? This monochromatic color scheme will bring a neutral tone to the room, which creates a cohesive, modern look.

Soft Greens and Mint

The cooling color of pastel mint will brighten up the earthy tones of the exposed brick. How are we so sure how that this red-green combination is a winner? They’re right across from each other on the color wheel! With the right soft green shade, your exposed brick wall will go from drab to fab.

Neutral Tan

You can never go wrong with neutral colors. The versatile nature of earthy browns and yellows makes it a beautiful complement to your unfinished brick. Find a warm tan to paint your remaining room walls, bringing an inviting feel to your home. This neutral space gives you the perfect opportunity to brighten up the room with fun furniture and art.

Trendy Orange

Although red bricks paired with orange hues sounds like an odd combination, the colors pair surprisingly well together. Whether you’re going for a deep warm living space or a bright pop of color in your kitchen, orange paint is the way to go.

Classic White

Airing on the more modern side, white paint is a great compliment to your exposed brick wall. Especially those white shades with warmer undertones. The crisp, clean feel of white paint nicely balances the edgy, industrial feel of brick.
