To say I am crushing on exposed brick walls now is true, but I have long been obsessed with the look of interior brick walls. Every since I was a young girl I have planned on my home having exposed brick somewhere. Shane and I decided shortly after moving in that our future master bedroom would have a wall of brick. We will use thin brick (brick veneer) tiles to create the look. I hope we can get to that project soon because I have been imagining it for such a long time and I think it will be fabulous!
If you have exposed brick in your homes, let me know if you love it or if you think it is hard to clean. That is my only small hang up is the fear it would collect dust and then be a pain to clean. Can you just vacuum it? Use a soapy rag? Spill the beans!
I love that brick can be dressed up and traditional, casual in a farmhouse, trendy in a boho space, modern, or industrial in a loft. Here are some of my favorite examples!
A fear some people have is that brick will make their space dark or heavy. That does not need to be the case! Look and bright and airy this living room looks!

Aged brick is my favorite look. It instantly brings a sense of history to a place!

There are clever ways to hang artwork on brick so there is little or no damage to the brick itself. Domino shows some of these examples.

I like when brick is found in unexpected places like as a backdrop for this bar.

I love the look of brick in the kitchen. My only hang up is that greece would get on the bricks and I am not sure how easy it would be to clean. Maybe I am being a bit too practical….

I love everything about this stairway! It is gorgeous. I have decided that white and brick go together like chocolate and bad days.

I was not planning on having the brick we add be the wall behind the bed but this picture has me rethinking it! I love the white, soft curtain against the texture of the brick.

I love the modern industrial vibe this home office has which is proof that brick can be both feminine and masculine.

Another fun and unexpected place to have brick is in the bathroom. How gorgeous is this farmhouse bathroom?
