I really love a white painted interior brick wall - of course, it would need to be scrubbed back a bit like this! I have a direct aversion to perfect finishes .... !
And, since I have an ensemble, am thinking that in my new bedroom (when I finally get a place sorted ...), I may attempt to make one of these lovely buttoned back darlings ... I think I can do it ... will keep you posted!
Photo ... Apartment Therapy of course!
