Let's take a look…

1. Modern brick walls

Brick walls have not always been a popular feature, but at the moment they are very in vogue! Opt for dark brick or a natural tone, combined with a cozy fireplace or some wooden features. This will set your living room apart from the rest!

2. More structure

Textured walls can give a home a very homely feel. The proof is right here!

3. Brick in the bathroom

Placing a cement layer over bricks is the traditional option but why not try something new? Here we can see how an industrial chic look and feel has been created by painting raw bricks black. This makes the whole environment very edgy!

4. Brilliant accents

Although mosaic tiles in kitchens and bathrooms are not a completely new element, they are still a very popular option!

Here we can see how dark, miniature tiles have been chosen, which contrast beautifully with the white ceiling. 

5. Traditional and modern

The charm of a red-brown brick wall is unbeatable. This is why traditional, rustic optics are more in demand than ever before. 

Combined with wonderful modern furniture and the result is beautiful!

6. Upholstery, leather and exclusive fabrics

A very fashionable way to give your walls a new look is to add unique materials such as leather or fabric. Here we can see how a padded headboard makes this bedroom a stunning experience. 

7. A coating of wood

Wood radiates a wonderful warmth and creates a very cozy ambiance. It's also not limited to the floors. Use wood for your walls too!

8. A stylish all-rounder: stone

Natural stone is one of the natural materials that always creates a stylish and modern look. This year, the trend is towards larger tiles that can create a beautiful haven-like design.

9. The 3D wallpaper

Wallpaper is a coveted classic when it comes to dressing up walls with little effort. There are now 3D wallpapers that can really change the dynamic of a room.

10. Bright colors

In addition to dark stone cladding, you can also choose a light tone in cream or beige. This will make your home look wonderfully bright and spacious.

As we can see in this image, it also works beautifully with dark wood and can be combined with colorful cushions, creating a fresh Mediterranean look and feel.
