With the strong possibility of us being homeowners in about a month, both Calder and I’s mind have been reeling with project ideas! Our house is an old home (built in 1900) with brick exterior walls and party walls. The wall between us and our neighbors (we’re the end unit of a triplex) runs the entire length of our house and we are playing with the idea of exposing the brick. It’s visible from every room except the basement. Once we get the official approval (talk about a long process…) I will post pictures of the actual place so you can see what wall I’m talking about!
Calder wants to leave it red…if it is red haha we won’t know until we uncover it…and I want to whitewash it. I think red brick is also beautiful, but will be too overwhelming for our space. However, I’m loving the more subtle, yet still highly textured look that the white washed brick achieves.
So what is your vote? Are you guys fans of exposed brick? Do you prefer it white washed or are you not partial to either style?
