When it comes to making a bold style statement in your home, there are a number of ways to do it. For this season, there is an unexpected trend entering the interior design world. Blurring the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living and inspired by urban streets, the trend is for homes to be adorned with brick wallpaper. Here we look at where the trend originated, exactly what it is and how you can achieve the look in your own home.
What is brick wallpaper?
Brick wallpaper might sound like an unknown concept but it is actually exactly what you think it is – wallpaper that has been printed to look like bricks. The designs vary between the different designers who are offering this wallpaper. The most traditional looking design features rustic red bricks whilst other variations include grey brick wallpaper and slate effect wallpaper like Fine Decor Slate Wallpaper.
Where did the trend originate?
The trend for brick effect wallpaper isn’t a completely new look. Brick wallpaper was a concept that originally came from the US in the late 1980s. It was a period of rebellion, people going against trends and striving to create modern, contemporary spaces that showed that individuality. Brick walls were pioneered by loft owners in New York who wanted to make bold statements that were still in keeping with their urban, inner-city environment. They decided to turn their backs on what they considered to be boring wallpaper and paint effect and leave their brick walls natural for all to see. For those who didn’t happen to have exposed brick walls in their home, they opted to recreate the look with brick effect wallpaper. The trend has only recently re-emerged as people again try to embrace city living within their own homes.
How can I achieve the look in my home?
The look is really easy to achieve in your home. Brick effect wallpaper is available from a number of wallpaper manufacturers including designs such as Muriva Loft Brick Wallpaper and Fine Décor Rustic Brick. The trick is to choose just one wall and use the brick effect wallpaper to create a feature wall. The easiest way to do this is to choose a wall that is already used to frame something – the wall the TV or fireplace is mounted on in the living room, the wall the headboard is on in the bedroom or the wall behind the cooker in a kitchen. Simply apply the wallpaper using the correct wallpaper adhesive and you will immediately have an outdoor brick effect inside your home.
To really bring the look to life, team with urban accessories. Think wrought iron or stainless steel to continue the outdoor theme whilst offering durability in your home. Bold, bright pops of colour in accessories are great for bringing the room together whilst graffiti art coordinates perfectly with the urban living theme.
