painted brick walls
Downplay Contrast in a Small Space - Architectural focal points can make a small space feel choppy by causing the eye to stop and focus in on that area. By painting the brick fireplace white in this compact sitting area, the fireplace stopped distracting from the room and now the wall nearly disappears into the neighboring bank of windows.
Major update for old brick fireplace ... paint the brick a contemporary color and add a wood mantel! To work in this application, we notched the back of the mantel shelf to fit around the brick chase and incorporated extended mantel 'leg returns' to work with the hearth that was the same width as the brick facing chase on the wall (Killen Mantel)
