Good Questions: What Colors Go Well With Brick

Hello AT,

My new apartment has a brick wall and fire place. I do not want to paint over the brick but what color paint goes well with the brick for the other walls? Anyone have any examples?
Thanks for your help!

Thanks, Jamie

Dear Jamie,

Warm colors in general go with a warm brick color. We like a creamy whites, mauves and other off-whites that will allow the brick to remain the main gesture in the room. If you try to do a dark, starring colors on other walls they will compete with the brick.

Check out Benjamin Moore Soft Whites collection and Ralph Lauren's whites collection.

Anyone else?
