brick by brick

It's no secret that I daydream constantly about a light-filled loft with at least one worn red brick wall.  (if you haven't noticed my current blog background...)

For me, the more subtle the better. A red brick that is washed out a bit, a little grayed...perfection. It should be an accent that turns into a focal point. The kitchen above is almost too much for me, but some brick is better than none, I think. The house next door to my parents' was built by some friends of ours - a gorgeous grey brick inside & out. The owners moved, & the old man who moved in PAINTED it. Painted it a hideous barfy yellow color with orangey brown accents, if it could get any worse. Please, for the love of GOD, do not paint your brick!

I will have a brick wall in my humble abode one day - & I will cherish it.
