My 140-year-old house doesn’t have any exposed brick walls, but I’ve always longed for one. They feel so rustic and organic to me, as though a home is revealing its soul by letting you see its true bones. With nothing to hide, each flaw in every brick is exposed and on display. There are so many things I’d do with a room with exposed brick walls, but I’ll have to settle for dreaming about it and living vicariously through images of inspiring examples.
Right here. This space is exactly what I dream of. Rustic, exposed brick walls paired with elegant white trim and furniture, and finished off with a gleaming hardwood floor. I would move into this home in a heartbeat!
I would even settle for one small area with a brick wall. A light gray paint on the kitchen cabinets pulls out the slight gray variations in the exposed brick. Copper accessories add warmth to this cooking alcove. And what do you think of that stove? Personally, I love it!
An amazing and impressive fireplace is framed with a brick wall spotted with larger stones. Furniture is kept to a minimum, allowing the many architectural details of this living room to stand out.
Exposed brick walls in an entryway hint at the architectural loveliness of things to come in the rest of this beautiful home. No adornment is needed. The brick wall is appealing as is.
It’s not often that you see a brick archway in a home. It perfectly frames the kitchen cabinetry with its detailed, glass-front doors.
Normally I’d opt for unpainted brick walls, but I love the look of this cottage style bedroom with its yellow walls and white trim.
An eclectic vibe runs through this recycled kitchen. Concrete floors set the stage for rich woods, exposed brick walls, and blue-painted pillars.
Colorful colanders create whimsical light fixtures in a kitchen clad with brick. Expansive windows create a light, bright space for cooking up your recipes.
What a gorgeous room! The wooden entertainment center looks rich against the rustic brick wall. Warm tones create a cozy, inviting space.
I’ll end with this fun, eclectic bathroom that I think will leave a smile on your face. An over-sized galvanized trough serves as a bathtub in this eclectic bathroom with warm wood floors and exposed brick walls. Would you ever install a tub like this in your home?
