need help with brick trim around windows!
August 28, 2013
We have no idea what to do around these windows! We are using a white/gray brick. Do we need dramatic brick work, or simple to not take away from the windows? At a loss and really don't have a preference just want it to look nice!
Thanks in advance! We are clueless! :)

Soldier coursing on top (brick laid vertical), sill coursing on bottom (brick on edge with a slope...or use Limestone solids supported by your white/gray brick.

We used what our mason called "half in-half out". I love it. I couldn't find a close up of window but this is around garage door and is exactly the same. There is a soldier course at the top where wall meets roof.

I like the soldiered brick that Ironwood B. mentioned .. along with a keystone over each window, will emphasize the curved tops and really dress them up .. especially looks nice with a variegated brick like yours.

Not the best pic here ... but I'm running off to work now!
