she’s a brick house.


i love white brick. i used to really like red used brick, but these days my heart flutters much more when it’s been painted white. it just looks so fresh and clean, and makes for a stunning background to a variety of different decor. i rounded up a few favorites for you. oh — and i do hope that song doesn’t get stuck in your head for too terribly long.

  1. This is one of my favorite things to see in old apartments or loft spaces. It’s the best of old & worn with clean & modern.

    Ah, I love white brick, too. Especially behind a mantle.

  3. I’ve been thinking about a post like this for a while, because white bricks is all I see on Pinterest these days! Nice selection.

  4. Absolutely LOVE exposed brick and all of these photos. I did a similar post (here: , but I agree that white brick is speaking to me more than old red brick as of late. It’s so fresh and clean but still with character! Also….I totally do have that song stuck in my head now :)

    I’ve kept a cache of persuasive painted brick images (to which I should add some of these!). In NYC, I’ve come up against a few brick walls – literally – with my design clients and often employ some visuals to back me up. I would almost always opt to paint over exposed brick, but sometimes they are in rentals and the landlords won’t budge. : ( I understand the appeal of exposed brick, but it can limit the palette and at times feel oppressive while painted brick still adds a nice texture to the room. Thanks for adding to my arsenal : )

      i totally agree with you jill, about the limitations of brick red. it can be beautiful, but also dark, and it’s probably not in my color palette right now. :)
