The more adventurous can even use their brick wall to install their bike! As for nature lovers, you can take inspiration from the plant wall to hang many climbing plants and invite Mother Nature into your interior…

4. Highlight



To enhance a brick wall, nothing like a light setting. Especially when you know that the brick wall (especially when it is red) tends to darken a room! Not only does the lighting give relief to the bricks, but it also brings friendliness and warmth. Use a light garland and hang it on different levels (like this inspiration) to create a ginguette-like decor! For more contemporary interiors, simple spotlights may suffice. As for lofts, floor lamps like projectors or architect lamps with wall mounting are ideal for bringing light and character to the brick wall.
