In Charlotte, North Carolina, you'll notice that red brick has a special role in stitching together the city's past and present. From the charming, historic neighborhoods like Fourth Ward, with its beautifully preserved homes, to South End's old red brick buildings, once bustling with industrial activity, have found a second life as apartments, offices, shops, and eateries.

Red brick is a timeless material that offers a classic and versatile foundation for various color combinations. However red brick isn't just one color; it's got all these shades going on, from deep reds to light terracottas, which means finding a paint color that doesn't clash is a bit of a task. Plus, red brick has this warm, cozy vibe that not every paint color gets along with.

So, yeah, finding that perfect paint color to go with red brick involves a bit of trial and error, some compromise, and a whole lot of squinting at paint swatches against the brick at different times of day. Luckily we're pros at squinting and have picked our top exterior paint colors that compliment red brick homes.
