At first thought, brick may not be completely connected to a fashionable, contemporary style. But, in fact, the interest and texture behind this rough and tough accessory can make for a very hip and modern bit of design. If you think about old buildings and homes often the brick is saved, because it’s antique and cannot be replaced. It’s use can change the vibe and feel of a living space by providing a touch of history and incorporating it into the overall design. When combined with modern era furnishings it creates a blended interior design look that is fresh and new. Let’s take a look at some modern brick accent wall ideas for your very own home.
The soft, subtly of this living room is warm and welcoming. But, it’s chic, posh appeal makes for a very stylish and rich space. Pair the scheme with this subdued, brick, accent wall and you’ve got an interesting and equally artistic vibe happening in this meeting room.
If you’re in the mood for a revamp or restore of your home, you may want to create lots of interest and wow-worthy appeal by adding a alcove of sorts. Create a reading nook, place of rest or just a more textural, eye-catching way of walking to the back patio with a bout of brick!
A tad darker in tone, this smooth and clean accent wall certainly brightens up this home office. Conservative in overall style, it’s okay to go with a more comfortable decor scheme instead of going with accessories that are too over-the-top. And that’s especially true when your layout of the room includes an amazing focal point such as this.
Even a cottage-flavored home can have a contemporary appeal. We love mixed materials, even ones that evoke a rustic or organic feel. But the trick is, to decorate with sharp, clean edges in mind. Like this kitchen, although a bit traditional and home-oriented, it still has a very slick and interesting style.
Not all brick is red and rough, you can get a camel, paneled brick as well to cover the outer wall of your home. It’s smoother, it’s chicer and it’s incredibly unique. Jazz the focus up with some Asian-inspired accents, black and white color combinations or even pops of bright and funky home accessories.
