Hello everyone. I have a question.

The entire front side of my Arts & Crafts bungalow is reddish brown brick with paned windows in the front and white siding on the sides and in the back.

I had it in my head that I was going to do a khaki-ish-sage green on the wood trim around the windows and on the front door. But now I'm thinking that between the white siding and the brick that the green be too many things going on.

My other idea is to find a paint that is a similar color to the reddish brown brick and then do the front door in a bluish gray and its trim in the reddish brown brick color.

What do you folks think? I don't have a huge budget, so I can't hire a consultant. I'm just interested in others who have bungalow experience. I'm having a hard time with visualizing.

Thanks so much.
