My mid-century modern house is currently "in style" but that's not why I love it. I consider the clean lines pretty classic and timeless. Not to mention extremely livable. I liked mid-century before Mad Men even existed and I will like it long after the "trend" has passed.

I would be VERY hesitant to paint that fireplace. I also live in a midcentury home and have a similar fireplace. We thought about painting it but realize a) It is possible, but a HUGE pain in the butt, to ever get it back to brick should you choose to do so some day. Plus it never looks quite right again and b) the homes with unpainted brick inside tend to be more desirable, in our area anyway. Now that we have decorated around it we would never dream of painting it. Just my 2 cents!
