A reader wrote and asked me recently “Which wall colors work best with a brick fireplace?”
That is not a question I hear very often anymore. Most of the brick fireplaces you see now are painted over in white (which I love):
I can understand why people like the look of old brick. Like everything else today we are loving vintage and sustainable, I think the natural brick can have it’s own charm.
So what colors would I suggest for the walls when working with a stone fireplace? When you look at natural brick, do you see the white, cream, tan and soft gold in it?
Those are the colors I usually start with. I think the creamy ivories and tans work best:
I usually stay away from dark wall colors when choosing colors for a fireplace wall because I feel the dark brick and the dark wall color will just compete with each other.
I do like a soft sage green with the brick:
Some soft yellows will work. What do you think of this yellow with brick below:
I’m not loving it. I think a softer yellow would work better. Look how pretty paired with the gold ceiling:
These are some the best colors that I would suggest to use when working with a natural brick fireplace. Do you agree? Do you have any other color suggestions?
