There’s a home in my neighborhood with a beautiful, new exterior paint job. A fresh coat of paint totally transformed the look of their home, but the paint color they picked looks so bad with their brickwork it hurts my eyes. I want to ask them, “what were you thinking when you picked out that color?” This 2012 blog post replay shows what you need to think about before you pick a paint color for your home’s exterior.
