As we’ve been talking about textured walls this month, it’s about time we cover one interior design style that all of us have seen at some point: exposed brick walls. Most often you might be able to see these in public spaces, such as halls, restaurants and cafes. Here are a few examples:

While opting for a wallcovering that imitates brick might seem an easy option to recreate this look within a low budget, we are quite reserved about it.

Best to stick to the original, or try something completely different.
