Sometimes our interiors work best when we strip everything back and reveal the raw beauty of the building itself. And there’s few more immediately beneficial ways to do this than through the exposed brick effect.

This wonderfully ramshackle work space makes great use of the exposed bricks to add a warm and weathered charm to the interior. The warm reds of the brick are also benefited by the pocked and variegated texture that adds depth and a tactile sense of homeliness.


Another option when deciding to use the brick effect in your home is to whitewash the brick wall. This lends a modern, gallery-like look to the interior as evidenced by the bedroom below, which softens up the clean white textures with some wonderfully comforting throws and cushions.


And if industrial chic is your thing, then take a look at the distressed brick wall effect in the kitchen below. The wonderfully raw and complex textures in the paint and plaster-work tell a story all of themselves!


There are many different varieties of brick of course. This country bedroom plays on its rustic charm with some quaint and old-fashioned brickwork that works brilliantly to create a cosy atmosphere.


And such is our familiarity with brick, is that it can work with an array of textures in a variety of circumstances. This delightful bedroom manages to be light and feminine through the soft textures and floral prints, yet is given a homely touch through the warm reds of the exposed brickwork.
