Hi Again,
I do want to add a few things about our painted brick home for those who have asked about maintenance,et. First the bricks on our home are a more natural color brick ---not the red brick that is most popular. They have a soft finish on them not rough. Does that make sense. Since my home is very old I do not know the history of the "painted brick". I highly doubt that it was built to be painted white but it has been this was for at least 40 years (we are only the 3rd owner and it was built in 1929. We do a yearly maintenance on the outside of the house that entails having our painter do a light power wash of areas that have stains, bird droppings, etc. We also have him touch up any areas that need it. It is not expensive to have done once a year and I think it has enabled our paint job(s) to last longer.
Hope this helps and good luck!

Hello misskatiebama,

Thank you for the question, however, the home was already built before we helped with the interior design, so we don't have that information on file. So sorry!

Thanks!
