Tom Scheerer would paint the bricks.
So, here is a blurry camera phone photo of my yet to be decorated office. What was once a screened porch will soon become my cozy work space and I am still debating whether to paint over the brick or keep it exposed. The minimalist decorator in me imagines how nice it might look under a coat of White Dove, but I worry I may be losing one of the few interesting elements in our otherwise architecturally bland home.
According to Dara from Domino, exposed brick can "suck the life out of a room", but I am still not 100% convinced.
Once you commit to painting brick, there is no easy way of going back. However, a white background would give my growing art collection a lift.
Decisions, decisions. Any advice?
