The brick was painted using a process from Boral Bricks called "pastel cote". The material is thicker than regular paint, but not as thick as stucco. I don't think Boral still sells this product though. You could probably get the same look using a talented stucco subcontractor.

The wood is cedar. The stain is a semi-transparent stain from Cabot, but I cannot remember the color.

What is the chain that is hanging around the arches?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Dresser Homes
The chain between the arches is purely decorative. Since the porch is less than 30" above grade, no railing was required by code. However, we added the chain to visually act as a rail and continue the Southwestern motif.

The wood is cedar. We used a semi-transparent stain from Cabot, but I cannot recall the color. Hope this helps!

I'm interested in where to find this light fixture

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 20 Sublime Outdoor Havens
This space feels so casual and inviting. I love the use of table lamps in outdoor rooms. They add a layer of light that is very soft and flattering. The rustic wood ceiling is a beautiful feature, and there are other very nice amenities. It is a little hard to see in this photo, but this outdoor room has a porch swing. That's something I would want in my ideal outdoor room. On top of that, speakers mounted on the wall above and to either side of the window provide music. A very nice touch.
Alex Jewett: Godden Sudik Architects added this to 7 Ideas to Get You Back on the Front Porch
The typical family room is about 15 by 15 feet. While your front porch doesn't need to be that large, it's important to have enough room for circulation around the furniture you plan to use there.The best way to make sure you use the porch is to turn it into an outdoor room. If you have a large porch, it's easy to put out enough furniture that whole family can use. This is a great way to expand the house and create a new living room.
This roomy front porch in Atlanta features a rustic cedar ceiling enhanced with a semitransparent Cabot stain, and painted brick arches that match the creamy exterior of the house. Softly lit by wall sconces and table lamps, it looks to be the ideal spot for after-dinner conversation.More: Porch Life: 12 Ways to Beautify a Porch With Plants
