Today might be the first time I’ve featured a home in Alabama! We’re visiting a white brick cottage newly constructed by Willow Design. This home proves a new house doesn’t have to be cookie cutter.
Wood posts are added as a frame to the front porch to provide texture and interest.
While the exterior brick is painted white, the builder used unpainted brick to emphasize certain features.
Inside, the brick is repeated in the living room’s fireplace surround. Shiplap is added to accentuate the fireplace with a simple wooden beam used for a mantel.
More evidence of quality detail in a new construction home can be seen by the use of paneled wood doors and detailed trim throughout the white brick cottage.
Crossback chairs in the dining room add farmhouse appeal while an antique bronze chandelier lends a touch of elegance.
A kitchen wall is lined with the same brick as seen on the exterior of the cottage. I like how the builder created an air of cohesiveness by replicating design features both inside and out.
The charming home even enjoys a beautiful sun room with an amazing vaulted wood ceiling where the heat of the south can rise to keep temperatures cooler for folks enjoying the breeze from the ceiling fan.
