chalky white painted brick

We have an exposed brick chimney in an upstairs bedroom. I've never really liked the color of the brick so I painted it first with primer, thinking I'd do a top coat of white later. But the primer left the brick so wonderfully chalky-white I didn't need to go further. I love these ultra flat, textural white brick walls.

I have painted white brick on the outside of the house...but I love the earthiness and calm it gives to an interior. Enjoy your new chalky brick!

Great pics, I really like this effect. The fact the walls are white means you can be creative with furniture and colour elsewhere, but due to it being painted brick there's already a texture and depth to the rooms. I love the bedroom, its' so chic, the stunning upholstered headboard beautifully completes the design and the dark wood floor just adds a bit of extra warmth. Stunning :O)
