Reader request - exposed brick

Today's reader request comes from Erick: I wanted to know if you could help me find ideas for designing/decorating an apartment with exposed brick wall. I think I'd like to see more of a modern take rather then a rustic one. I'm open to the industrial look also. Jo and I are HUGE fans of exposed brick. H U G E. And I think exposed brick works with any type of decor. Smooth and sleek modern furnishings add an interesting contrast to the rough and raw edge of brick walls. And industrial mixed with brick just makes total sense. WORK IT ERICK!

Great post. Have always been a fan of exposed brick. I am especially attracted to the painted grey brick. Interesting twist.

I'm a huge fan of exposed brick. In fact my first 3 apartments and 1st condo all had exposed brick. They add so much character to a space. I've never tried painting because I'm a fan of the brick color. But the white brick in the pictures look really clean. Something for me to consider in the future. Great pics BTW.

Exposed brick walls look great, adding art to the wall works too. Thanks for posting these!

Another exposed brick lover here - think there are quite a few of us out there! Funnily enough just done my own post about it on my blog - would love to rip all the plaster off my kitchen wall, but don't think that's going to happen anytime soon!
