Bricks & Stones

December 8, 2010 8 Comments by Regina

We don’t have much of a Winter here in Florida but sometimes when I imagine brick or stone work I think of a warm family hearth and a snow-filled Holiday season. Of course, they’re not limited to that — the designs can be found in tropical weather locations, beautiful exteriors and unique interiors. I thought I would share some of my favorite images…

A more classically designed interior nestled amidst gorgeous stone walls.

A more exotic flair can be found in Baie de Nuarei, a hotel in French Polynesia, as featured in Budget Travel.

A very unique interior, no?

Shots of color are always a pleasant surprise. The photo on the right is for the Texas Twister House designed by Emily Summers in conjunction with buildingstudio architect Coleman Coker. Click to see them larger, if you’d like.

The exposed brick fireplace works perfectly in this contemporary home as envisioned by Heiberg Cummings Design.

Finishing off with gorgeous exteriors. On the left is the Montpelier Plantation Inn (West Indies) and on the right, a vision from Henredon. Please click to enlarge.

Many of these images can inspire artists when a client is looking for this particular look. The beauty is that bricks and stones come in such versatile sizes and styles that they can fit any decor — always a beautiful thing! Hope you enjoyed these… Have a wonderful day!

    One thing about stone and bricks, the termites can’t get at them or any critters for that matter! Thanks for the article, Regina! As always, your choices are varied and arresting.
