Sometimes small changes can make a big impact on your home’s exterior. Here’s an excellent design trick to make your brick accents and columns look timeless.
My client Deborah moved into this house with brick accents along with brick columns (below).
She immediately dry brushed the siding paint colour on top of the brick to make it look authentic.
Here’s a better photo of the brick painted (left) and what it looked like before (right).
These are the columns, that weren’t beautiful yet. So she had them covered up and added trim to each base.
Then came the landscaping, but let’s see the before again shall we?
Sometimes the little things make a big difference!
Photos speak a thousand words don’t they? See the inside of this now, much prettier house here.
I’ve seen many brick columns throughout my career and VERY FEW that I think should have stayed on the home.
If you have brick columns that work on your house or an Ask Maria question, send me your photos here. Please note, questions without photos CANNOT be considered.
