I would call it a real brick wall. I think it's amazing. I think you're amazing for tackling it. And I would love to know how you find 1/4 inch brick that looks OLD -- somebody skim-coated my fireplace, and the skim coat is there for good -- but with brick like this, maybe I could restore the look!

Glib, as in "fluent and voluble but insincere and shallow"? I'm with cyarolimek; I don't think one has to be negative to comment. These tours are like inviting someone into your home -- you don't really expect them to tell you how much you hate their taste . . . .

I think they just removed the doors for those cabinets -- which is also a great way to change the look if you're a renter and you can't paint. It really opens up the room.

Don't worry about finishing everything. Let your home evolve along with you. There's a proverb -- Japanese, I think -- that goes "House done, life over."

Love #1 and #3 -- although with spaces like those, you could probably hang cereal boxes on the wall and it would still look great. On the other hand, the bathroom will all those mirrors would make me want to grab for a robe . . . .
