Exposed Brick Beauties

ac10eef591a534cfcabe6558ac828b0b I have always loved the beauty of exposed brick in pretty much every room and have been obsessing over it so much lately that I thought I should do a post on a few gorgeous spaces. I mean look at this most gorgeous bathroom. I always wonder if I would be able to paint over exposed brick, but have to say it was the right choice here. This white bathroom is serene and elegant.

It would be amazing to have this space to decorate. So many possibilities here. The brick is stunning as are the columns. And all of this light, just beautiful.

Look at this gorgeous fireplace. The brick insert just makes all of those gorgeous details on the fireplace pop.

These bedrooms are just gorgeous. I would love to be able to add a bit of brink to the wall behind my bed. I am only renting, but there are ways around that. There are so many ways to create the look of brick without having to buy the real thing. Lowes and other home improvement stores sell faux brick panels that you can easily put up temporarily. Some of these aren’t so realistic looking but adding a bit of a wash over the panels would make it look more authentic.

So pretty.

I would love to hear if any of you have exposed brick in your home? What room would you most love to add a bit of brick to if you could?

      Thank you very much! Right! Every time I look at these pics it makes me want to add one somewhere. I am only renting right now so think I am going to do the faux brick paneling for now. I know it’s not the same, but really want to add it somewhere. You will have to keep us posted if you add some to your space.

    I too love exposed brick! My husband is planning to expose the old chimney in our dining room one of these days. I know it will add so much charm. That one room that you said has always been one of your favorites (with the dark floors) is one of mine too! Would love to live there :)

    I have a small section of exposed brick in my home which has been painted grey prior to me moving in. I rent and if it was up to me I would have not painted the brick at all. The father away you stand from the painted brick, it ends up looking more like blocks of concrete. I don’t mind the look of that either. It still adds a bit of character to my home. Thanks for sharing such great pics!

      Paulina,

      Your wall sounds charming even though it has been painted. I rent as well right now and am always looking for ways to add in a bit of character without making huge changes. It’s a bit more of a challenge but always fun.

    Oh these photos bring back so many memories of a great older friend. We worked in a furniture store together and she rented the upstairs of an old downtown building to live in so she could walk to work. All of your photos are very similar. We had soooooooo much fun decorating and reviving that place. Some areas were aqua and purple, just stunning. Thanks for the fun.

    I love the photos of the different effects of painted brick. Where can I get instructions on how to paint brick with a similar patina finish?
