A New Spin on Brick

Spotted lately: bricks used in unexpected ways (as kitchen island base, as herringbone floors, as a decorative motif). Here are four inspiring examples.

Above: A brick kitchen counter from Frank Visser and Mirjam Bleeker’s book Dutch Architects and Their Houses.

Above: The brick hearth and mantle are surprisingly modern looking in this Norfolk barn by Carl Turner Architects.

Above: Bricks function as herringbone pattern floors at this Danish summerhouse via Purple Area. Do you how to differentiate this pattern from others? Visit Chevron and Herringbone: Spot the Difference to learn.

Above: A minor brick detail accents the Dinesen wood floors; see Remodelista‘s post on Walls, Windows & Floors: Dinesen Wooden Floors in Denmark.

Do you love bricks? If so, visit Remodelista‘s Room Gallery to see more.

Enchanting, there is often a very warm and welcoming feel to both brick and wood.
