Creating an industrial yet cozy feel, exposed brickwork works well in more rooms than you may initially consider. Adding character and unique rustic charm, the textured material can produce a light and airy contemporary loft space, the classic farmhouse kitchen or super-stylish stairways.

From exposed chimney breasts, to a whitewashed archway or housing large industrial windows, the natural architectural element provides a subtle nod to the composition of the home.
Combining texture and tone strikes an effortless balance adding interest to a space. For me, a beautiful dusky grey sofa with soft white throws set against an accent brick wall, paired with a natural wood coffee table would make the perfect addition to my ideal home.
