A beautiful globe light fixture with a frosted glass top hangs down the center of this winding staircase. A painted brick wall adds texture to the space while blending with the white surroundings. Light wood stairs keep the space bright, and a blue window frame adds a small touch of color.
As seen on HGTV’s Fixer Upper, this entry courtyard’s modern design was enhanced by painting the brick light gray and the door a contemporary blue-black. Natural wood support beams, no-fuss landscaping and a herringbone-pattern wood walkway complete the look.
Indoor brick walls add industrial, historic and rustic charm; however, the brownish red tone of the brick drastically limits the possible color palettes a homeowner can use. To keep the brick pattern and the rich texture, paint the brick bright white in a flat finish. The white brick will make a room seem much brighter and also allow virtually any color scheme to work well.
The exposed brick wall and fireplace were painted white to create a fresh backdrop for this midcentury modern family room. Colorful accessories decorate the mantel and wall, adding personality and pizzazz.
Whitewashing the brick wall in this loft keeps the historic texture while lightening up the space. Neutral armchairs and a plump sofa provide seating while patterned drapes add a soft layer to the design.
Light shines into this midcentury modern bedroom through shallow, ceiling-height rectangular windows -- and together with crisp, white walls and a skylight the space is bound to feel bright all year round! Furnishings are kept minimal -- a low bed, simple modern chair and teak armoire are all that's needed to complete the room.
Gray and white accents give this open dining room a chic, romantic quality. Neutral armchairs pull up to a marble-topped dining table, while a contemporary chandelier ties in the globe pendants from the nearby kitchen.
This open concept room has a beautiful flow between kitchen, living room and dining room. Bright white walls (including painted brick) and ceilings keep the space feeling bright, while walnut floors provide a grounding warmth. In the living space, a zebra-print chair and neutral Flokati rug jazz up the clean and simple lines of the room. The fireplace serves as a focal point for the space.
Tropical patterns and prints bring personality to this luxury living room in an Arts and Crafts-style home in California. Low-hanging art and a cozy bar beside a fireplace with painted brick make this space relaxed and inviting. The room was designed by Madcap Cottage for a Napa Showhouse.
