Exposed Brick walls

Instantly adding character and rustic charm even, lending an industrial modern touch to a space, exposed brick has me hooked. I don’t see the purchase of a loft or historical building in my future however, that hasn’t stopped my from collecting beautiful spaces of exposed brick, here’s my round up - enjoy!

How about painted brick? Many people favor one or the other -- how about you, which side are you on?

Exposed brick or painted brick, there’s tons of charm and character, wouldn’t you agree?

PS... I'll update this post with all my sources when I get another 15 minutes later today!! Sorry, got to go now!

Lovely! I'm a big fan of exposed brick as well. if we stay in our house long enough, we've talked of putting a small sun room kind of addition on the back and leaving the brick exposed. We'd probably have to paint it... but i think it would be gorgeous!

Totally agree Wendy!
Recently designed an office area in a factory, it needed some charm and industrial looking cool factor, so I installed some exposed brick walls.
Great post!

I don't know if you know this about me Wendy, but I am OBSESSED with exposed brick walls and it's been that way for a long time. Alas, I have never lived in a space that has them, but I am not giving up! Great post!

LOVE exposed brick walls! Although I do like the look of painted brick in some cases, I prefer unpainted.

I have never met an exposed brick wall I don't like...painted or not! I've made it clear on my blog that I love stone finishes in an interior, and brick is no exception. It's my dream to have an exposed brick wall in my house one day :) These are great inspiration pics to keep!

Agree! I love when it's paired with really cool art too.

Wendy, my sister has a huge loft building with tons of exposed brick. Lots of windows as well so it is still light and airy!

Come enter my giveaway from Empress of the Eye! You will love the interview!

I'm a huge fan of exposed brick walls, especially when they're painted white and paired with a great piece of art or oversized mirror!
