Brick

There are different shades of brick to fit various spaces, and even if you don’t have brick walls, you may go for some faux brick, which is extremely easy to apply. Whitewash your brick for a softer look, it will look great with any shade of brick, from red to neutral. If these are ready brick panels, they come in white, so you won’t need any more work. Brick will add texture to the space while being neutral enough to blend it with bold and eye-catchy decor.
