Let's Talk About The Brick Color....

Hello again and welcome back!
These past few days have been a whirlwind of design choices.
It has been fun, confusing and time consuming.
 One thing I knew is that I did not want any plain solid colored brick.
So when I saw the "Aspen" with a brown tinted base and smeared grouted accents...
I fell in love.

I love the antique style of this brick.
Somewhat like Chip and Jo's German Smear....

But only one problem... if you could call it that.
I cannot find an example of it online.
I looked thru my builder's inventory and no one else has used it.

I looked online... and really just a close up.
No homes listed it as a brick color.
 My guess is that it is similar to this, but maybe darker base.
 Mine will have grey grout and white trim.... but close?
Honestly, I will be surprised and excited to see it when they start.
Here is my rendering of the house....
And here is one built... so it will look like this one flipped....
This is one from the website of the brick.
But ours will have grey mortar.

I think ours will look darker than this...
But who knows?

It will be interesting to compare in a few weeks when they start.


  1. Love the first two houses, such a beautiful brick color! So excited for you!

  2. Thanks Cindy, I love them too. Just hoping ours looks SOMETHING like them! xxx...

  3. I'm in agreement, the first two are quite nice. Congratulations on your new home; so exciting!

    1. Thanks so much. I hope you can follow along!

  4. Nice choice... hope you love it! :)

  5. I love all these gorgeous homes that i saw and hope to see more of them to get wonderful ideals on how to have my home to look something almost like these!

    1. Well I spent most of the winter thinking about what a Southern Home looks like. I am so ready to see it built.

  6. Looks lovely from the outside, Brooke. Can't wait 'til you get to the inside decor!

    1. Me too, and get everything out of boxes... it will be like Christmas.

  7. Love the brick color. We are building a house, too! So many decisions! Excited to follow along yours!

    1. Fun, I hope yours is what you dream of!

  8. Can't wait to see it completed. I love all of your choices so far!


Thanks so much for visiting and leaving a note! ♥ Brooke
