Interior Obsessions – Brick

interior-obsessions-brick-interiors

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with brick. Raw and new, old and whitewashed, painted, used. It has such texture and feeling. Whether used as a floor or on the wall, brick is a wonderful warm material for the home. Perhaps you don’t like the orangey tone of a standard brick? Try grey or cream-colored ones. Or just paint it over – but be sure to let the shape of the brick and the lines of the mortar show through!

Wishing you lived in an old loft with that exposed industrial look? Try adding brick to an end wall! Just be sure that the wall doesn’t continue past a window or door and your makeover can be seen as not original. Or have you found a brick wall under old wallboard? Take it off! Let those beautiful bricks shine through.

I love the look of the brick on that kitchen floor. It really adds something special to it.

I have to agree with you on that Tanya. I love it too.

I’ve ALWAYS loved brick. I really really really want a fantastic brick wall in my future house. Or all brick walls. That would make me happy too 🙂

I go back and forth on whether I’d want a brick wall in our home, but Amy’s roundup is definitely making me think about it again. Thanks for stopping by Vicki.

I couldn’t agree more! Brick is oh so wonderful! It adds a rustic, raw feeling to any room. I really liked the brick floor. …however falling would NOT feel so good…
