We are in no way saying that full brick chimney decor is ok. But in some rooms and with some styles the bare brick wall is a great raw way of decorating the home.
A brick wall works well in a Scandinavian bedroom, especially with a white wash.
Again with a white wash brick works in a Scandinavian style kitchen. Especially with the mix of light wood and greenery.
Again for the same reasons the brick wall works in this style lounge. Hints of greys and yellows, as seen in the above living rooms, are a perfect pairing for the brick wall.
The natural brick with the dark metal bed frames and large chunky photographs in an Industrial style bedroom is a great combination.
Heavy metal and wood furniture and dark colours are a signature of the Industrial style. A white wash brick wall will brighten up this style whilst keeping in with the theme.
Leather, cushions and big metal lights. Industrial style living rooms ooze style and comfort. A brick wall is a simple answer for this style. It allows photographs to stand out and is the optimum industrial wall covering.
The eclectic style brings together bits from all styles that work together. In the above examples you can see hints of Industrial, Shabby Chic and Mid Century Modern.
The brick background to this style works as a great neutral canvas for the other style to meet.
We love the mix of Industrial, Mid Century modern and hints of Scandinavian in this first lounge. Especially the roughly exposed brick with the worn off white paint.
Here are a few interiors we love and are inspiration for your own home.
This eclectic style lends itself to a room filled with plants. Add some fresh greenery to your room to bring the summer indoors and add colourful character. The style of mid-century modern furniture works so well with the mix match of colour too.
The grey pallet of this room lends itself to having a hint of colour, The duck egg used here looks great with the neutral greys. Wouldn’t our wallpaper do well in this room? This is also a great way to be able to change the room regularly, just replace the colourful items with a different colour and you’ve easily and cheaply changed the whole room.
We are also loving the shallow photo shelf easily makes a collection of different images and frames look neat and tidy.
The exposed brick is what makes this such a nice featured room. Plain, simple and smart. We like the mix match of furniture and the neutral tones. Like the room above a shallow white shelf would also work above the sofa with a mix of images.
The colour of the lampshade and the artwork creates a link to the dinning area seen in the background. It also brings a fun and colourful extra to an otherwise plain area.
Following the neutral tones of the above rooms this dinning room makes a perfect example of mix and match chairs. We love the big industrial style lights and think that they work so well with the otherwise country feel of the room.
Although more of an art movement the eclectic style of designing your room takes little bits of detail, style and time periods together to make one separate unique design. The image to the right below shows the animal skin rug of the Western style, the Mid-Century Modern furniture and the colour pops from an Indian style.
