Last week we got a good question from Scott
, who mentioned "I haven't found many websites with exterior paint colors for brick homes, especially with Chicago references/examples..."
In our own West Town neighborhood, we've noticed a lot of beautiful homes with glazed and painted brick, so we set out with our camera to gather a few shots...
• 1 Green glazed brick on a modern home
• 2 White glazed brick on a modern home
• 3 Another shot of the same home's facade
• 4 A close-up of the white glazed brick
• 5 Beautiful, weathered blue paint on a traditional home
• 6 Cream-colored paint with rust-colored borders
• 7 Light gray paint wrapping the facade of an apartment building
• 8 White paint unifies the facade of this house
• 9 Brick red paint with black and red trim
• 10 White glazed brick, wood, and natural brick
To learn more about painting and glazing exterior brick, the Brick Industry Association has a number of downloadable PDF guides ranging from "Ceramic Glazed Exterior Brick Walls" to "Painting Brick Masonry."
