Exposed Brick

by Laura Casey Interiors on September 30, 2010

Exposed brick is a structural and aesthetic element that I often associate with more cozy and traditional interiors.

Yet it can be also look great in a more transitional and contemporary space.

Brick in a kitchen brings in an element of warmth to an otherwise modern kitchen.

When we lived in NYC I had a few friends who sometimes thought brick was a challenge in their apartments, but I think it is a fantastic and unique interior feature. Isn’t this smart to hang a fixture from the pipe?

The below space looks like a fabulous wedding dress or vintage shop.

I love how a few of the pieces are hung from the walls.

Don’t you want to go hang out on that tufted sofa and try on dresses? I do!

I love the texture exposed brick gives to a room. So many want to paint it and I almost never suggest that unless it sticks out like a sore thumb in the room. You have some great images showing how great it can look,KATHYSUE

Makes me want to sing – “She’s a brick house – lookin all mighty mighty” –
My 11 year old daughter wants a brick wall in her bedroom! I think it can have an old yet hip vibe to any space. Fantastic images. Wait, I always say that when I stop here.

I always think it LOOKS good, but I hate it in a house, prefer it for office spaces. I just think it feels/looks dirty and is very cold. That said though, these photos are all gorgeous!

I love exposed brick Laura. You have chosen some beautiful examples! I want to save every one of them in my inspiration files.

I used that first image in one of my very first blog posts — so yes, I also love that look!

I am joining you on that sofa! What a lovely room! And look at all that natural light.

Happy weekend to you, lovely Laura.

We love exposed brick… That fixture hanging from the pipe is a great idea!

Love the home in the first two pictures! I cut them out of a magazine (Traditional Home?) years ago and if I ever build a house, I’m copying the exposed brick with arched doorways. I actually think it warms up a house. Great post!

I love seeking outdoor elements on the inside…brick, limestone, iron, garden elements, etc. I especially love the first two images!
