Hey everyone! I’m seeing painted brick as trendy, especially painted in white. Have you noticed that too? Seems that lots of people are painting brick walls or brick fireplaces white these days. And though it is HARD (some say nearly impossible) to ever restore the brick back to its original glory, many who do go with painted brick are fine with that – they are content to keep it painted for years to come. Last year, we photographed a loft in SOHO and the homeowner had amazing brick walls that she painted in a very deep eggplant. I’m not a fan of purple walls, but in her home, it looked almost black until the light came in and wow – it was magical. For me, when it comes to brick, I love seeing it painted in black, gray or my favorite, white. Here are some examples of white brick walls that I love.

So what do YOU think? Would you consider painting brick walls or is that, to you, the ultimate taboo – like painting an antique piece of furniture? Or have you done it and love the results? Are you a little on the fence?
