Designer's Choice

Brick and Stone Pairing 

by: Allison Hayes, design consultant

To some, selecting stone to complement their brick may seem like a daunting task. The overall styles and appearances of a stone and brick exterior can be vast when you consider the many color, texture and cut options available. It is helpful to have a color palette in mind and an idea of what you envision your project to look like.

Whether you see more of a dramatic color range, or maybe your style is more neutral and subdued, with brick paired with stone, the choices in color and texture are virtually endless. 

Below I have demonstrated several different pairings of Triangle Brick products with Canyon Stone, which is a manmade stone plant located about one hour from our Merry Oaks, NC plants.



Wilmington brick from the Parkway Collection paired with Driftwood Classic from Canyon Stone




Charleston brick from the Village Collection paired with Autumn Blend - Southern Ledge from Canyon Stone




Chesapeake Grey brick from the Parkway Collection paired with Bucks County - Canyon Ledge from Canyon Stone



We hope these schemes will offer some design inspiration. If you like the combinations you see, call or email me. Perhaps you want something a little different, or you need help selecting complementary paint colors for these schemes; I am here to assist you in your exterior selection needs!
