N and I spent the afternoon driving through another Ryland neighborhood trying to pick out brick and siding for our new house. We aren't allowed to have the same brick or siding that the neighbors on either side of us have, so this knocks out two types of brick and two colors of siding. We drove through the neighborhood and picked 14 houses that we admired. NINE of them had at least one color that we aren't allowed to have. :( Looking on the bright side, at least we know the neighbors have good taste, right?

Here are a few pics of what we have it narrowed down to. We are consistently drawn to a lighter brick called Arcadia. The most popular sidings it is paired with are the two we aren't allowed to have: Sierra and Sand. But here it is paired with Champagne, a little lighter than Sierra or Sand.



This picture has it paired with Sand siding on a house that is a little bit closer to what ours will look like.



There is also this darker brick, called Oldham Tudor, that we found ourselves really drawn to today. Here it is paired with Champagne siding.



We plan to go back to the Design Center on Tuesday to do a little more research on the siding. Maybe we will be able to find a color that is close to Sierra or Sand that will go well with the Arcadia brick.

What do you guys think?

I like the first pick - especially with the darker shutters and door!

I'm so glad you started blogging. I will have to add your blog to my list of usual reads.
And for the siding and brick, I really like the third one, with the darker brick color.

Hi! SO excited for you guys. I also really like the first picture with the darker shutters and door. It gives a nice contrast and makes the lighter brick and champagne siding really pop. I also love the 3rd one too with the darker brick, which might work better with your red vs. blue door scenarios ;) Can't wait for the next update...love you bunches!
