Just when I was ready to compromise with the Mister and say, "We'll paint the siding, let it sit for a year, and then decide about the brick," I then saw these pictures here.
I must say, I'm intrigued with the result. And I would even dare venture to say the brick on that house was less dated then ours.
It's not that I hate our brick. Well, I mean, I do, but I recognize the beauty of it. It's just that the rustic, earthy 70's color brick doesn't seem to pair up well with a more formal, french-sort of home. Plus, I don't like the pairing of black with brown and orange. Too much of a genre or style conflict.
Mister, my love, I already know what you're going to comment, but everyone else is invited to comment away :)
