If you're the lofty, industrial-living type, there's probably nothing in a home that makes your heart sing more than exposed brick. It's also kind of tough to decorate around, if you want to do something other than black or white. At least, that's what people think. The reality is there's a host of saturated, vibrant colors that look amazing against un-painted brick.

Mint Green/Blue

This cool pastel color is everything brick isn't. Soft and pale, and right across from the reddish-orange shades of the color wheel.

Dusty Blue

A deeper, dusty blue shade is a great pair for brick when you still want the stone work to do the talking for a room.

Turquoise

Turquoise, with it's blue-green duality, is perfectly complementary to the red and orange shades found in traditional brick features.

Pear Green

Whether you're looking for something bright or more unsaturated, this yellow-green shade is a great match for brick. Just compare the chair and the wall in the pic above from Bree & Andy's place in D.C.

Bright Red

You might not think of red to pair up with your brick walls. The secret to a successful red-on-red play is sticking with a primary, basic shade of the color.

Mustard Yellow

It's almost like a neutral when you set it against a brick wall. Almost.

Orange

From tangerine to pumpkin, orange brings out the best in your brick.
