put a brick on it.

i saw this pretty and very old 19th-century Charleston home on dwell, and instantly swooned over this brick mantel. i love the modern painting they hung, too — just the right amount of interesting contrast. this beautiful home belongs to Josh and Helen who run the design and branding firm, Fuzzco. for a look at their renovation progress, visit their feature on dwell.

    I loved seeing this in my Google Reader this morning! The painting in the first photo was done by Tim Hussey. You can see more of his work on his site: husseyart.com

    Thanks for the post!

    Love the feel that it has, I am thinking of incorporating some brick into a fireplace design in an upcoming modern home we are working on. I was thinking of painting it but now maybe I will leave it raw.
