    The brick is shadow stone by Boral Brick. They are laid as to not see the holes. However this brick is also available in a solid.

    Thermafoil is a product we have used many times in secondary baths and utility rooms on tight budgets. Clients have recently been able to get painted maple cabinets for the same price. Ask your cabinet designer about other cost effective options.

    I think the newer thermafoil cabinets are so much better than the earlier ones. I have some in a house and they are about 25 years old...getting new cabinet doors now to replace them as old cabinets are nicked and look bad.

    It is brick. It is Shadow Stone by Boral Brick with Savannah Ivory mortar.
  • jvdapena
    So it's mortar washed? Or did it come like that? And does it wear well on the floor?

              Haint blue paint and an old superstition. It’s common to see the ceilings of Southern porches painted what’s known as haint blue — again, not a specific color, but rather any number of soft, pale blues, from aqua to periwinkle. The name is said to have originated with descendants of enslaved Africans living on the coast and coastal islands of the Southeast. (They’re known as Gullah in the Carolinas and Geechee in Georgia and Florida.) In their folklore, evil spirits called haints can’t cross water, and painting porch ceilings and doorways the color of water was a way of tricking the spirits into leaving the house alone. As time went on, the color also took on the reputation of being able to repel wasps and mosquitoes, perhaps because paint back then sometimes contained lime or indigo, known insect repellents. In any case, painting a porch ceiling sky blue is a charming way of blending the indoors and out.Max Crosby Construction of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, used Sherwin-William’s Piazza Blue for this ceiling. It has been discontinued, but other Max Crosby haint blue favorites are Sherwin-Williams’ Atmospheric and Blue Horizon.Lantern: Carolina Lanterns; raised-panel shutters: New Horizon Shutters

              This beautiful porch in Charleston was constructed from the same bricks that are on the walls of the home (Boral Shadow Stone with Savannah ivory mortar). The traditional beadboard ceiling is covered in Duron Paint’s Piazza Blue.

              Nothing conjures up relaxation quite as well as the Southern porch. Make the most of yours with classic shutters in a dark hue, lantern-style fixtures and easygoing porch furniture.

              Rachel Grace added this to Exterior Panel Shutters Cover All the BasesOct 19, 2012

              A traditional Southern home is appropriately outfitted with a subtle Haint Blue ceiling and functional two-panel shutters.

              Topiaries are a simple way to keep your outdoor planters looking fresh. For a burst of energy during parties or special events, a brightly colored perennial around the base adds pizazz.

              Rockers are appealing both from the exterior and the interior. Because they don't take up too much space, rockers can easily flank exterior windows, so as not to obscure an interior view.

              The Home Editor: City & Small Space Consulting added this to Rocking Chairs Roll Onto PorchesApr 18, 2012

              Porch furnishings can increase your curb appeal. In this instance, classic black rockers and perfectly pruned topiaries add elegance to this home's entrance.
