If you live in the Southeast, you may be wondering if painting your brick house is a good idea. The answer is yes, there are several reasons why you should consider painting your brick house.


One of the main reasons is that the high humidity and temperature in the Southeast can cause brick to absorb moisture. This can lead to cracking or efflorescence, a white powdery substance on the surface of the brick. Painting the brick can help prevent moisture from penetrating the brick and causing damage. It acts as a barrier between the brick and the elements, protecting the brick from the effects of the weather.


Painting your brick house can also give it a fresh new look. If your house is looking a bit dull or outdated, a new coat of paint can make it look brand new again. This can increase the curb appeal of your home and make it stand out in your neighborhood. A well-painted brick house can also add value to your home if you are considering selling it in the future.


Before painting, it's important to ensure that any existing damage is repaired and the surface is cleaned thoroughly. A professional should be hired to ensure that the job is done correctly. It is also important to use a paint that is suitable for use on brick. This will ensure that the paint adheres properly and lasts for a long time.


In conclusion, painting your brick house in the Southeast can be a great idea. It can protect the brick from the effects of the weather, update the look of your home and increase its curb appeal, and potentially add value to your home. Just make sure to hire a professional, repair any existing damage and use a paint that's suitable for brick before starting the job.

When it comes to painting your home, it can be easy to focus on the cost of the paint rather than the quality. However, when it comes to making a decision on which paint to use, it's important to consider the long-term benefits of using a higher quality paint. In this blog post, we'll discuss why you should consider using a higher quality paint, even if it means spending a bit more money upfront.


Firstly, higher quality paint is typically more durable and long-lasting. This means that it will need to be repainted less frequently, ultimately saving you money in the long run. The durability of paint is determined by the quality of the pigments and resins used in the paint. A higher-quality paint will have more durable pigments and resins, making it more resistant to fading and chalking.


Secondly, higher quality paint also has better color retention. This means that the paint will retain its color for a longer period of time. This is particularly important if you're painting a room that gets a lot of sunlight or if you have chosen a bold color. Lower quality paint may fade or yellow over time, while higher quality paint will retain its color, ensuring that your room looks as good as new for years to come.


Another benefit of using higher quality paint is that it is typically easier to apply. Higher quality paint will be smoother and more consistent, which makes it easier to apply and results in a more professional looking finish. Lower quality paint may be more prone to drips and splatters, making it harder to achieve a smooth finish.

Finally, using a higher quality paint is better for the environment. Many higher-quality paints are low-VOC or no-VOC, which means they emit fewer harmful chemicals into the air. This is better for the environment and also healthier for you and your

family.




In conclusion, using a higher quality paint may cost a bit more upfront, but the long-term benefits are well worth it. Higher quality paint is more durable, has better color retention, is easier to apply and better for the environment. So, if you're on the fence about the price difference between a lower and higher quality paint, consider investing in the higher quality option for a better-looking and long-lasting finish.

Wallpaper Is Making A Comeback

Textured heavy elements are a new playful way to elevate the spaces within your home if you are wanting to avoid large negative spaces. I find wallpaper being a great addition to walls were the drywall might not be in the best condition.

It’s all about playing with scale and maintaining a consistent color palette to keep your space feeling consistent and interesting. - Studio McGhee
 

Hues of Brown


I ,for one, am excited to see the shift away from the cool-toned shades of gray. There is something warm, almost human about how browns can breathe back life into a home. Don’t get me wrong, grays are a great choice but personally, it looks best in a corporate setting.


“Chocolate browns, camels and caramels—there has been so much color and pattern, especially pastels, the last few years and I think people will be ready for a palette cleanser.” -Mark D. Sikes
 

Limewash



This is a hot debate at my household about whether lime wash walls looks as good as it does in photos. Since this is my blog, what I say goes, I think lime wash is absolutely timeless. I love the clay-ash look it has. Maybe I am biased because I used to do pottery and it reminds me of being in the art studio. If you have an artist flair, like I do, a lime wash wall as an accent piece would be beautiful. It is best placed in a room where the sun hits the wall like how it does in the example above.

Thanks to its old-world origins, limewash is perhaps the most sustainable and environmentally friendly treatment you can apply to your walls. It’s non-toxic and contains zero solvents or VOCs. It’s also said to be hypoallergenic and antimicrobial, which we can totally get behind. - Havenly
