27 Dec A brick neighborhood is born
Expect to see lots of bikes, kids, potlucks and cook-outs in Trosper Place, a new brick neighborhood in Greensboro, NC, over the next few months as the new brick neighborhood nears completion.
Like many neighborhoods, Trosper Place features brick homes. Pine Hall Brick "white" brick—lighter colors from sandy white to deep tan—to be exact. Matched with popular Oyster Pearl brick with lots of pink highlights, the darker Tuscany and Vienna brick homes give the neighborhood a pleasing palette in a surprising range of color and tone.
There are also homes using Blackmoor and Millstone brick. Trosper Place has a coordinated look, but it's not "all the same." It's another example of how versatile brick can be when paired with the perfect mortar color, like Ivory Buff. Vienna was newly introduced back in 2012 at the local Parade of Homes.
Tuscany and Vienna brick are from the Pine Hall Brick "Vintage" line. Modern manufacturing technology allows us to create a brick that looks handmade with quality for generations of timeless beauty. The edges are beautifully irregular and there is a range of color and highlights that changes with the sunlight. So a brand new neighborhood looks classic from day one.
The two photos below both show Tuscany brick. The top photo is in shade and the bottom photo was taken in more direct light. So you can see how brick reflects the time of day and the home's color makes subtle changes
With lighter brick, you can accessorize your home with accents that draw from the brick's darker tones, like chocolate shutters or dark metal sconce lights. Off-white trim paint adds depth and helps bring out the color in the brick.
Trosper Place is on its way to becoming a classic brick neighborhood. For more photos and ideas, visit our Pinterest page.
