One of the great advantages of building with brick is the range of colors and tones available. Whether you have a more traditional home in mind or something more intricate, there’s a brick to match. With little maintenance and a lot of durability, brick is a no-fuss option that a lot of homeowners love.

This Georgia home is a great example of how the brick selection can be influenced by the home’s architecture to achieve a cohesive overall look. The design consultant on this project was Jeannie Sias, a design consultant based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Here’s what she had to share:

“The Chateau at Tree Lane was built as a spec home in North East Atlanta. When I first saw the plans, I fell in love with the subtle French architectural style. To take advantage of that style, I chose Pine Hall Brick’s Spanish Moss queen size brick for its soft gray tones and timeless character. Lafarge 051 white mortar brings out a weathered look in the brick. 

The main entrance and water table are faced with natural stone. To accent the entrance and anchor the home, I requested masons select stone a bit darker than the brick, asking them to avoid shades of gold and orange. Other details that add charm include metal roof over front entrance, charcoal stained natural cedar shakes, carriage style garage doors and shutters held back by iron brackets.”
The result is a beautiful home! Do you have a Pine Hall Brick project to share? Pass it along and you may see it on the blog!
