I just bought a house and I am going to redo the living room (among other rooms). The living room is red brick and I was thinking of either whitewashing it or painting it. I'm needing ideas on what color to paint everything. I didn't know if the bricks would look pink if I whitewashed them. Oh! And the hearth is what looks like a pink marble (bleh...) Not sure how I'm going to change that either. I like earth tones.
By the way, the pictures are off of the website before the person moved their stuff out. NOT my stuff. ;-)This message has been edited. Last edited by: caseyheather123,
I totally agree with you. I'd immediately get rid of the red brick and make it white.
As for the pink hearth, I frankly don't know what you can do about that short of getting rid of it and changing it to a more earth-toned color that would stand out beautifully against the new all-white fireplace.
You can tile right over the brick and the hearth. We tiled over granite, so I'm assuming going over the brick would work too.
Yes, you could paint the brick white or do as WWanda advises. A great how to tile over the brick is found on this page...
