{painting brick and a stunning home in Brooklyn Heights}

Photobucket

I've been thinking...there are quite a few homes that come through on the MLS that have outdated brick and in my opinion are not so attractive. I was having the conversation with a family member about buying one of these said brick homes and white washing the brick or just painting over it completely. I know that for me and this Arizona sun that if it were my home I would choose white but with that being said I can not get the above image out of my head..that dark brick is just stunning.

Just in case you wanted to see the interior of the above Brooklyn Heights Greek Revival Home look below because I felt like gifting them to the blog world. All photos via CWB Architects.

The blue cabinets serving as a "backsplash" to the exterior painted blue wall is genius, and the Persian rug compliments everything so well. So pretty.

WOW. I'm in love!

You know I love painted brick!

And, that's my kitchen in the first pic! Oh, I'm loving my new blue cabinets.

Such lovely decorated places! Great inspiration. Though they look great here, I don't think I could ever have a carpet with animal print in my house...

Love the dark brick. Where do you find all these awesome homes?

This place looks amazing! I love how all the elements just fit together. It can be tricky to figure out how to Design Your Home so it fits your personality, but some places just work. When I was decorating my own place, I spent a lot of time using Simply Decorate. While I do work for them, their room designing tools and ideas were honestly a huge help. They made the whole process much easier and are really worth taking a look at.

You really find the best stuff.
Just when I think there's nothing new under the proverbial yellow Skittle we call the sun, you pull something out of your hat.
A very cute pad indeed.
Cheers, Alcira

Those are pretty cool interiors, very spicy....too much pattern and color for me but I really like it for them. Thanks for sharing. The room configurations are helping me with my present living room predicament.

Only you could make painted brick look amazing...and of course the owners of the above house. :)

Loves!

years ago I saw a series where
a photographer had found relatives of
people who posed for john singer sargent paintings and
he took photos of them that were reminiscent of the original pictures.
they were quite wonderful.

LOVE LOVE your floor! Turned out amazing...I was wondering, is there a gap from the base boards? I would
love to pull up our yucky carpet and do this to our floor! It did have hardwood but previous owners pulled it up! Soooo, left with a slab...Great
tut too! Very well described! Will keep you posted if I get *brave* (ie:ambitious) enough to try it.

A roaring flight of steps, hmm - very eye-catching, indeed. With innovative interior painting concepts, houses today are truly becoming more and more creative and imaginative. Competition in interior designing is getting stiffer and stiffer.

I love everything about that house! It is beautiful. I really like the use of brick paint on the outside of the house. I love the dark color. You can do so much with a space by painting the brick.
