Traditional Architecture: Brick Home Facade
A welcoming home that draws inspiration from traditional architecture with a few twists of its own. The brick facade with stacked stone around the windows and doors add a rustic element that makes up for the absence of shutters.
The exterior of this modern home features a sleek brick-and-wood facade with a metal roof and dark, updated trim. A walkway of pavers lends design distinction to the front path, while gravel beds fit with the home's mod aesthetic.
The rear facade of this Brooklyn townhouse is painted all-black, a bold decision that lends drama to the traditional structure. A bricked terrace adds to the home's livable space, while a tall fence provides privacy.
The paver walkway narrows and widens, adding interest to the renovated landscape and exterior of a Minnesota home. Southview Design laid out the red brick pavers in a soldier course pattern and selected a lighter tone for the walkway's border. Modular retaining walls with wide steps and landings extend the home's architecture to the street.
This traditional brick home has loads of curb appeal thanks to a stone walkway, blooming hydrangeas and freshly painted shutters dark green shutters. The wood shingles are a timeless addition to the roof and dormer.
Deep purple, sun-loving coleus in containers pop against the orange-red brick and dark green front door of an Atlanta home. A mix of begonias were planted front and center, for easy maintenance. Danna Cain of Home & Garden Design also chose a bright yellow moss rose to complement the other plants.
This home perfectly balances the Italian Mission influences of simple, clean architecture with the traditional elements of design. The elegance of the space can be seen in almost every detail like the crown molding, exposed beams and sophisticated furniture choices.
Homeowners wanted a modern redesign to their home's exterior, so designers kept the long front porch that meets the neighbors, but punctuated it with modern, vertical windows that penetrate the painted brick section of the home's front facade. Then, they added cedar siding to warm up the exterior space. Finally, a navy blue door adds a splash of color to the design of the home's front elevation.
The stone patio with its brick-veneered fire pit and multi-level seating makes for an inviting and entertaining outdoor space that's easy on the eyes. Cushioned outdoor chairs invite guests to linger around the fire pit while taking in the beautiful view of the traditional brick home and professional landscaping.
Through a colorful doorway and past a tastefully appointed parlor is a breathtaking living room. The dark stained floors, which run through the entire house, were laid by Julio, who taught himself the skills he needed to accomplish the job. The white masks that hang from the far wall are his creations as well. The masks offer a modern way to bring classic Angolan art home. The ornate fireplace, one of four hearths this home boasts, is original to the space, as is the decorative scrollwork that runs across moldings and ceilings in this room. The way that Kenza and Julio have maintained the architecture of the home, is a reminder not to remove or cover up original fixtures, but to instead accentuate them. Filling a traditional space with modern furnishings creates a unique contrast of styles that can add layers of sophistication to a room.
