Wonder Walls – Beautiful Brick

Not a new trend by any means, but I can’t help feeling that bare brick walls look so much more authentic with some patches of plaster still adhering to them.

Do you think these rooms are just a work in progress or a design statement?  I do so hope it’s the latter.

If you want to try this at home I’ve heard it’s not an easy option.  Chipping the plaster off is quite a labourious job and there is no power tool that can take the place of a hammer and chisel and a stiff wire brush.  It’s also advisable to finish off with a coat of sealant to stop it shedding dust.


What do you think of this look?

    I really like the top two photos but I really couldn’t live in the third open warehouse one at the bottom. It just doesn’t seem like a home and there’s something oppressive about it. I love exposed brick walls generally though.

    Hello, I’ve been following your blog for a while but never commented before!

    I like brick walls, but as you said I prefer it not to look too clean and perfect either. You definitely need a coat of sealant – I wonder how must dust it’d collect though?
