Shake things up at home by painting an old, red brick fireplace a bold and unexpected shade. Jennifer, the crafty do-it-yourselfer behind The Suburb Experiment, pulled off the look of Staffordshire brick, which is a gorgeous shade of blue, using paint. The trick behind this project is using paint to tint the bricks instead of thickly covering them with flat color. To do the blogger combined one part blue paint and one part white paint with around four parts of water. Then she applied the homemade color wash to each brick using a brush. Then, before the paint dried, she wiped off the excess color using a clean, dry rag.
The black metal and exposed chimney of this modern fireplace design lend themselves well to a 60`s-inspired room. When set against a large picture window, the boxy frame is echoed perfectly, giving a sense of continuity without being too uniform, as well as offering a welcoming view when the weather gets a bit too dreary. The stark black metal can seem a bit harsh in a smaller space, so complement a fireplace like this with low, angular furniture to make the room seem taller, and bright splashes of color to update its retro-chic feel.
