i used to think painting brick was kind of sacrilegious, but i’ve been swayed in the opposite direction and really quite like it now. and not go on ad nauseam about restored by the fords, but yet again i was so inspired by designer leanne’s vision to add white paint a significant brick space in a mid-century modern home they were renovating, that i was motivated to write this post. white brick especially looks so fresh and lightens up what could be a very dark room and gives it a whole new life and look. i know it takes some guts to brush that first swipe of white — but look how worth it looks!
