10 Styles of Farmhouse Brick for Your Home
There are many ways to render a farmhouse style look, and the walls and floors are a prime place to do that. From beadboard to exposed wood beams, adding a layer of natural texture is key to achieving a rustic touch. This look is celebrated in most farmhouse style homes. Another key material, farmhouse brick not only offers texture but the option of unique colors.
Whether you love the classic red or wish to opt for a more muted hue, there’s plenty to love in Cherokee Brick’s wide range of brick options.
Here are our 10 favorite Cherokee Brick styles to choose for your farmhouse brick.
One of Cherokee Brick’s most popular selections in their Handcrafted Collection, the Andersonville Brick mimics true reclaimed brick. It’s the brick’s blueish red body and pops of black and white that make the Andersonville a modern classic. While many home builders might not choose real reclaimed brick—due to its weak structural integrity—Cherokee Brick has created the Andersonville brick to meet all ASTM standards.
Antique Hard Tan Brick
One of the newest bricks in the Mississippi Handcrafted Collection, Antique Hard Tan brick is also one of most popular. Consider this brick if you are looking for a true creamy neutral tone. Yet pops of black texture create interest to make the brick feel unique and bespoke.
The Brookhaven is a great choice if you’re looking for a light-colored brick. Coming in white, ivory and a light gray, the brick has plenty of character for an overall aged, muted style. This is also the brick that Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent chose to use for their entire home on HGTV’s Rock the Block Season 2.
Oak Alley Brick
Very similar in style and tone to the Old Savannah brick, this Oak Alley Mississippi Handcrafted brick is perfect for any home that wants a pretty brick that goes well with most any accent color. Use it to complement just about any paint color on your farmhouse exterior or interiors.
Old French Quarter Brick
Think classic American farmhouse meets colonial with this brick style and color. The Old French Quarter brick is much like Andersonville Old but leans more towards an orangey red with black and pops of white. This is a contemporary brick with a classic twist.
Old Savannah Brick
Now, if you’re looking for classically Southern, look no further than Old Savannah. This brick was made to mimic the brick in and around Savannah, Georgia. It’s a beautiful neutral-colored brick with dark tones and textures befitting historical districts of the South.
Rae's Creek Brick
Its dusty rose hue marks Rae's Creek as a touch more romantic in tone from the others. With a fantastic tumbled and salvaged look, Rae’s Creek offers a remarkable shade that includes a peppering of white and black over a gray body. This brick was also featured on Rock the Block Season 2, when Alison Victoria chose it to adorn her winning kitchen!
Raleigh Used Brick
Raleigh Used is another popular brick from the Mississippi Handcrafted Collection. It has a super-rich red body and flecks of black and white like Cherokee Brick’s other brick, Andersonville. Yet, this style offers an emphasis on the mortar between the brick pieces to render a handmade, collected quality beloved on the farm.
Savannah Gray Brick
Looking for that old, storied look? Consider Savannah Gray if you are wanting a bit more southern cottage mixed into your farmhouse. The brick’s got a great brown red body with lots of texture and smatterings of white to lend a pastoral elegance to your country abode.
Capture the salvaged brick vibe without amassing piles of old farmhouse brick. What we love about the Shelburne Brick is the texture created through the white face on the red body. Not only does it create a distinctively striking feature in a farmhouse, but the brick seems to change color depending on how it’s viewed. From far away, the brick looks creamy in hue, but close up, the brick reveals unique pops of red.
