Well just that really. Any ideas please for exterior paint colours? It's a three storey victorian orange brick town house with two large bay windows stacked on top of each other and stone work around them (don't know the technical term).

Do I do for something like Archive/Cream/Oxford Stone from Farrow and Ball or, a gray-blue (as in a complementary colour) - or would that just be too hideous?? Really stuck.

As t is a town house, I think you have to take a look at your neighbours.
Grey/ blue might look good with the brick but stick out too much in a row of houses.

Fair point.There is quite a variation of late victorian properties, with enough space for it not to matter. Except the attached semi which has upvc and white painted masonry. I'd rather not go with white, as I think it's a bit stark.

I am going off F&B after reading reviews. Looking at Little Greene - if anyone can recommend a colour.

An anthracite would be good
