I LOVE a painted brick exterior, kim. As a matter of fact, I have one! donna
I am currently trying to convince my husband that we should paint our ugly brick fireplace, but he's having a hard time accepting that I'm right!
Let's just discuss the fabulousness of that pale blue door for a second please!
Paint it! I love the look of painted brink once it gets worn and faded!
I love painted brick both outside and on a fireplace. I have seen the right paint color transform an ugly brick house. Nothing wrong with a brick house but some brick is just hideous and looks so much better painted. I pretty much think all brick fireplaces look better painted.
I love painted brick, but knowing that I would have to keep it up may bother me.Lovely post, Kim.Teresaxoxo
painted brick looks beautiful, these are great images
Always loved painted brick, love the light beige one with the pale aqua door..beautiful! Painted brick is so elegant and love it when the red comes through just a little....beautiful post!
Go, go, the dated brick must go. I like the way it looks on the exteriors too.
I adore painted brick! We said we would paint our house when we bought it. I am still waiting on that to happen :)
I think it depends...an ugly, old and outdated fireplace? Yes. An elegant and traditional brick home? Hmmmm...I'm not sure I'd be brave enough!
I agree with Carrie. Icky fireplaces be gone! I don't know if I'd like the maintenance of painted exterior brick. Kinda defeats the purpose of buying a brick house, I think. Suzy xxx
love your blog Kim !its so lovely :)thanks for visiting mine ;)santiroyalhome.blogspot.com
Love it. the first one is my favorite.
Sublime. And so is that amazing Tiffany blue door - ahhh.
So sublime, Kim! Brick is one of the few things I am all about painting!
I love painted brick walls...They give a warm feel to any space,I love them too in interiorsespecially in bedrooms and kitchens.
Kim,There is nothing that updates a "ugly color" brick home or fireplace like a great paint color! I'm all on the painted brick team! The photos you showed are gorgeous! My Bf, at one time had a small brick ranch cottage and painted it a dark taupe all by herself! It was sweet to begin with but the paint just brought it to another level!Rebecca
I want so badly to paint our brick home but hubby is against it. If I could just get him to go away for a weekend without me...
Love painted brick. It always look fresh and clean especially on icky old fireplace!Jessiewww.mixandchic.com
I love painted brick as well!! I especially love the example with the fabulous blue/green door and interesting architectural doorway.
Dear Kim, what's amazing is that I have a number of these same photos saved on my pc because I absolutely adore them as well! We are similar in that we both are Obsessed with painted brick! Well perhaps I speak for myself in regards to the obsession, but seriously, painted brick goes traditional, european, classic, royal, contemporary, and chic! And I love the row houses in DC, I could wander those blocks for hours just loving the color combinations! xox!
Definitely sublime! Painted brick is my favorite brick. I have been dying to paint our exterior brick to freshen up the look of our house. Thank you for the lovely inspiration.
We just painted the brick mantels in our home a bright glossy white, and we are obsessed too! xo E + J
