In certain parts of North America houses clad entirely in brick are very common. As well, brick is often used to add interest as an accent feature.
Natural brick colours vary from red to brown to gray to cream and are typically mottled in pattern. Correctly diagnosing the colours in any brick is vital, as these colours will inform the rest of the colour choices you make for your home.
Each and every recommendation is from Maria directly. The eDesign team packages her advice into a clear presentation for you and handles communication and client support.
