If you are lucky enough to have a house made of bricks, as well as avoiding becoming a wolf's breakfast, you can also take advantage of this trend! Using exposed brick as part of your home decor has seen a resurgence in recent years. The combination of warmth and character is a winner for folks looking to celebrate the history in their home. Often seen around fireplaces, exposed brick is now popping up as a feature in living rooms, kitchen and even bedrooms. The top-floor condo at 16 Wellington Street in Boston’s South End features exposed brick in the living room and bedroom, giving a striking appearance. At 501 Lowell Street in Carlisle, the exposed brick brings drama to the stairway. Check out both homes on our Featured Listings page.
