    You can use your bricks for inspiration, or the stucco. I like to go to different paint stores and pick up several samples in exterior colors that I think I will like. They look different in daylight than in the store. Not long ago, I picked up some 8 1/2 x 11 samples by Kilz, which are peel and stick. I stuck them to the garage in places that get light at different times of the day. I'm "living" with the colors to see which I like better. I plan to paint in the Spring. You should be able to find some nice Earth tones that you like.

    Questions to ask yourself: What color is your house now? What colors do you admire in your neighborhood? Do you want to contrast with the brick or have it more blended in.?Lastly, ask yourself if you want the brick painted? That could open up more choices for you.
