How Do We Feel About a Brick Backsplash?

What do you think? Cool? Not so much? After a little pinterest searching, I decided I think I really like them.

In fact, I decided I like them so much....

I kind of dove in and put one up in the kitchen. Surprise! It won't be staying brick colored *sigh of relief* but here's my question: All the ones I loved on Pinterest had white painted brick. Should I go with white or should I try something different? I can't decide. I'm planning to prime it so I'll at least get an idea of how white will look before I commit to a color. And I my husband who actually knows how to use photoshop whipped up a couple color sample for me to see if anything tickles my fancy.

Still, I have no idea. What do you think? The walls are yellow now but I'm thinking of going pale green instead. So what would you do???


  1. If it were me, I think I would go with a dark grey (almost black) or white. Looking forward to seeing what you pick.

  2. I like the clean bright look that the white creates. Happy color picking!

  3. White... you can always get some sample paint... paint a few .. see what you think... In the end... then paint white... or what ever color is appealing. Hugs, Cindy

  4. Thanks everyone! It's looking like white it the favorite, I may just go for it this weekend. :)

  5. I agree that I like white, but I also like the neutral darks like dark gray or something similar. If you want your room to be brighter, I would go with white. I really like the way this looks! I can't wait to see what you choose in the end.

  6. I love the darker blue, especially contrasting with a pale green. Whatever you do I'm sure it will be wonderful! P.S. If you ever get a chance stop by my blog:

    Lots of Love! Mel
