I'm in love with brick walls. Very strange for a Miami girl. I don't know what it is. Perhaps it's the fact that my hometown up north is full of brick homes? I'm not sure, but I know it gives me a sense of homey coziness. I especially love brick walls in the kitchen, but I wouldn't mind it in the living area, fireplace, or family room. Here are some brick wall photos I've saved along the way. I'm officially adding this to my checklist of new house requirements.
