Dreaming in Brick

I have been waiting until my blog was redesigned to share this fabulous brick home with you. Of course this house is stunning but it is captured spectacularly by architectural photographer, Peter Montanti of Mountain Photographics. He is a master at photographing interior and exterior architectural details with over 30 years experience.peter montanti_thumb[17]

The house, nestled in northern Georgia, is built with post and beams and General Shale brick. The details of the house are just amazing. I fell in love with this photo of the twilight reflecting off the metal roof.peter montanti 2_thumb[55]

I adore the meandering brick bridge to the back door – We often see this type of connector with very straight lines, but the way this curves is just a delight. Notice the detailing on the roof line and around the windows. Also notice the lovely copper overhang – beautiful. Now for a real treat let’s see inside!

Look at that fireplace, quite an architectural feature. The post and beams come right to the floor which I think is very interesting. The wood ceiling and floors balance the expanse of brick. One of my favorite details is the metal band around the fireplace. Also notice the arched entry ways which is repeated in the arch of the fireplace opening.

The kitchen is stunning! Notice there are almost no upper cabinets – the wall of arched windows is breathtaking. The black honed counters are nicely balanced by the black cabinet on the left.

Finally let’s have another look at the outstanding details on the exterior. It is wonderful to see such craftsmanship. A special thank you to Peter Montanti for his wonderful photo tour.
