Use brick decoratively. Brick comes in any color and size imaginable. So vary the color, size, placement and location when laying a brick wall. Also consider changes to the mortar joints. By changing colors at different courses and by deeply raking the horizontal joints while filling the vertical joints flush, Frank Lloyd Wright achieved amazing visual effects.
The Huertley House of 1902 designed by Frank Lloyd Wright represents an early Prairie style home. The hip roof with deep overhangs, emphasis on horizontal lines, ribbon windows and central chimney mass are all features of the style.
