Painted Bricks

I am a lover of contrast, taking the rough with the smooth. Cosy interiors ladened with soft furnishings with a rough painted brick wall is right up my street. These are a few examples I have found that get it right. You want your home to still be a home and not resemble an Underground station, consider mixing the rustic with the clean and contemporary, glitz and glam.

Faded glamour with gilded frames and mirrors fit quite comfortably in front of white painted brick walls.

I love how this coffee house have kept the raw bricks in the shape of a map.

The allure of classy black brick walls!

I think the grey bricks work well in this setting, a light and airy space is elegantly achieved.

Having exposed brick in this very clean white space adds a little texture and interest.

Black walls could be oppressive but here I think they like really classy. A great choice for a masculine office but I think you would need a very large window.

Painting this brick ceiling picks out the gorgeous curve and bounces light around this stylish space.

Roughly white washed walls are contained by these chunking skirting boards and door frames. A lovely mixture of textures.

Finally a splash of colour with this two tone forest green and white room.

To paint or not to paint? I am convinced.
