Entries in brick (84)
A contrast of white plaster and raw, rust-washed concrete. Painted brick counterbalances sleek kitchen cabinetry. A simple, bright, modernist approach was taken by architecture firm Crosby Studios with this 590 sq ft Soviet era apartment. The addition of plants throughout make this an A+ home in my book.

I get really excited when I come across a home with lots of character, where period details have been maintained. This 2 bedroom flat situated on the first and second floors of a traditional terraced house in Newington Green, north London is the home of designer Abigail Edwards, and several of her beautiful wallpapers and fabrics are featured throughout. Set against a backdrop of old wood floors, exposed brick and large windows, this definitively got me excited. Available as a location home through Shoot Factory.
Dutch interior designer Jeroen van Zwetselaar of ZW6 has transformed this 1930s semi-detached house into the perfect home of artist Casper Faassen. Light and shadow, open yet contained, new and old, the design breathes new life into the building. I love the house striped back to its bones, a white box containing the kitchen and dining room slipped into exposed brick shell, love the airy loft bedroom, the hard floors softened by rugs and always the art, the beautiful art.
