Painting a red brick house

We are looking to paint our red brick house. We also have cream roller shutters. I would like to paint the house grey but wondering what the cream shutters would look like??? Has anyone painted a house with cream roller shutters?I'm told we shouldn't paint the shutters as it may cause them to jam.

    Grey and cream will rarely go together. You may need to rethink your paint colour, there are 1000s to chose from. I think you could paint the shutters but it would require touch ups around the moving parts.

    I agree with bigreader that grey and cream rarely work well together. You won't many photos of thic combination as it doesn't work. I would be considering other options before painting red brick - as once painted it is there forever. A picture would help Houzzers make some suggestions. Grey paint is the apricot paint of the 2020's.


    Best of luck with your considerations,
