We have a red brick fireplace, it's RED, not the dusty pink looking bricks,and has cream colored grout lines. It is not painted brick nor do we want to paint it.
Any ideas on paint color for the room, or that wall in particular. The room is approx. 12' wide by 17' long and the fireplace is on the narrower wall opposite the entry door. Only two windows shaded by a huge tree outside so not much natural light. I was thinking of "accenting" the fireplace wall with a darker color and then doing a very light tone of the same color on the rest of the walls.
Your design thoughts and visions are most welcome! Thanks
Could you possible post pics? ... and tell us more what 'look' you wish to achieve?
Also, is there a limited budget or are you entertaining the thought of refacing with another stone?
Provide more details if you can...
We have a red brick wall in our living room. The other walls are painted SW Harvester....a golden yellow.
I have a red loveseat and two chairs that are red, yellow, and blue paisley.
Why would you think of accenting a wall that is already the focal point of the room? It is already your statement wall because of the fireplace.
I think the walls would look beautiful with an ivory tone. You could then pick up "color" in fabrics, throw pillows, paintings, throw rugs and accessories.
Without seeing pictures, I'm thinking I'd stay light (creamy) to deal with the lack of light. A faux finish may be interesting - and I find it lasts longer than flat paint.
