concept blanc.

something i realized on my trip to new york, is that the one thing i love most about the architecture there is all that brick. i love the look of exposed brick, worn, well-lived, loaded with history. oh, if only those bricks could talk! i thought i’d round up some rooms that embrace the look of brick.

  1. Yes, I miss BRICK
    I loved growing up around it, the history the stories it told. My dream is to own a brick home one day.
    Here in Vegas, I don’t think any brick even exists so sad :(

  2. So many wonderful examples here. I love exposed brick, and cannot fathom why more people do not see the beauty in its variation and patina. Of course, old brick is more interestingly patterned than new, but freshly laid bricks, especially if laid in irregular depths, are wonderful too.

  3. We’re currently looking to buy a house. One of our faves has an enormous brick wall that runs all the way to the ceiling, housing a duel sided fireplace. To paint or not? I want to paint it, my husband is skeptical. Hopefully these images will change his mind!

  4. so glad you all liked this post – i’ve been dreaming of brick since new york. i love the contrast of it, with some more modern pieces.

    katie – it’s from a lonny shot, so maybe it’s on their site. seems like you could diy this table somehow, too!
