Exposed brick in the bedroom

With Valentine's Day approaching, I though a post on romantic bedrooms would be appropriate. I love the contrast between the roughness of an exposed brick wall in a bedroom and the luxurious and feminine touches such as beautiful bedlinen, chandeliers, a sumptuous headboard and so on.

This beautiful example is via Rooms of Inspiration

Beautiful tufted headboard via Decorpad


Via La Dolce Vita

Beautiful exposed trusses and chandelier via The Blasphemous Fiendess

Here the brick has been painted (via The Decorative Touch)

My bedroom - I have the brick wall but am still patiently waiting for the French bed and crystal chandelier

Till next time

    A lady who ran the cafe at my old office building was from South Africa, I want to say Pretoria. She and her daughter moved to the U.S., and they were so very popular here with everyone in the building because (1) they had The Best Accents Ever! and (2) they were super awesome ladies!

    Your blog is so lovely, I think I am really going to like visiting here!

    Best to you,


  10. Your bedroom looks so gorgeous...
    and all the others too from your post.

  11. hi I have a painted brick living room and need to repaint - do I just do it with one color or do I need some effect to give it more depth and texture? Please give me your advice. I want a light clean effect similar to the one in the photo painted by the decorative touch thanks
