A living room is often the cosiest room in the house to gather with family and friends, and every designer or owner tries to make it as welcoming as possible. A fireplace, some plants and fur would make your living room cozy, and of course a stone or brick wall! Yes, it’s hard to believe, but rough brick makes any room cozy and cheerful, regardless of the style you choose. In fact, a wall is easy to adapt to your interior and colors – just choose the size and the colors you need – white for shabby chic or strict dark gray for an industrial space. Very often a fireplace is made of brick, and the wall behind it continues the decor. Check out the living spaces below and choose the ideas for your home decor!
Neutral brick walls
If you prefer neutral colors, you can opt for a white, whitewashed or just neutral brick statement wall in shades of gray or sand. White brick easily goes with many styles of decoration: boho, Scandinavian, modern, modern, contemporary, glamor and others. You can design all of the walls this way or opt for a single neutral brick accent wall. If you can’t make a real exposed brick wall, choose faux brick panels. You can fill the neutral space with colorful furniture, light-colored textiles, accessories, and artwork, or keep the space neutral with white furniture, artwork, and accessories.
Red brick walls
Red brick is a classic that suits many decorating styles: industrial, boho, mid-century modern, contemporary, and others. Red bricks can be a bit too light to cover all the walls. Therefore, it is usually a single statement wall or two walls. Red brick looks bolder and more textured, adding catchiness and interest to the room, but don’t worry – if you decide red brick is too bright, you can always whitewash it for a muted look, or go white or soften the red brick look with it neutral mortar. If you want to whitewash red bricks, you can even use all brick-clad walls. Check out the examples to incorporate bricks into your living room decor and get inspired!
