The area outlined in brick directly in front of the door is actually all the same material - lannon stone, a type of stone native to southeastern Wisconsin. The light and dark tones are caused by age. The stone was reclaimed from the original patio that had been likely installed in the 1930's. The very light material outside the brick outline is the new concrete driveway. Thanks for your question.

I'm sorry but we were only involved in the hardscape/landscape design for this project. The home was built I believe in the 1920's so I would not have that information on the house brick.

Have you tried Pine Hall Brick?

Good luck with your new house!

Thanks for your comment. If you are referring to the brickwork on the home, it was done in the 1920's when the home was built.

Hi and thanks for your question. Regretfully, the door was already this color when we began working with our client on her landscape design so we did not pick the color.

Hi, thanks for your question. We were not involved in the paint selections on the house but the trim around the door is actually painted concrete. Definitely a warm gray or taupe color from what I can recall. Hope that helps.

Valspar's Tomato Red (WV38104) is a similar color.

Regretfully I can't help you with that answer as the owner had painted the door prior to us beginning our part of the project. I agree with The Shabby Nest's suggestion!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to When to Paint Your Home Red
And let's not forget that old and traditional material, red brick, when thinking of a red house. This material, which can be bright or subdued or both at once, imparts liveliness and a sense of craftsmanship to a home's exterior. Pair the red brick with some cut stone and a red door to create a strong focal point and impart a sense of welcome.More ways with red
