"Bricks & Stones" Brick with Stone Accent

When adding a Stone accent to your brick home - Your Mortar choice can make all the difference in the look you achieve.    As a "General Rule" . . . Lighter colored stone  - use darker mortar .    Darker colored stone - use a lighter colored mortar. Choosing a lighter colored mortar will "Frame" your brick and allow the stone to stand out.    Choosing a darker or matching mortar can create a more Monochromatic color scheme.    

The photos of the Mosstown  with Ivory Mortar VS. the Mosstown with Buff  on this page are great examples of this.
