Another brick in the wall / 147

Hej friends,

I’ve been out  on a city tour with some friends & Sydney’s suburbs are full of beautiful & exciting brick houses & buildings. Our first house was in red brick, even though we said, anything but a brick house. It turned out well anyhow & we lived there long enough to renovate the entire house before we moved. I have not always been particularly fond of brick as material. Maybe because I felt that those houses was cold & without soul when I was younger. I grew up in a society that largely consisted of wooden houses, since it was traditionally, the material used in the construction industry …& that still is. What else can you expect from a country that is covered by forest. I love wood in all kinds of shapes, it’s an unbeatable material.

We once had a recreation room with a red brick wall around the fireplace while the other walls were pine paneling. I thought long to paint the brick wall white, but never got started, I think deep down, I wanted to keep the natural red brick as it was. That said, it’s nice with brick houses but I also think it’s exciting to let a brick wall be visible, in a room together with other materials. It adds another dimension, an additional structure that provides warmth & character. Let’s take a look at the different interiors below…
