The Magic Of White brick Interior Design
Synonymous with industrial Interior Design, exposed brick conjures up images of history and early urban development, of factories, warehouses and booming metropolises with tightly-packed apartments. While redbrick can convey the rough and rugged look of older cities, white brick lends a softer edge to most architecture.
White brick Interior Design can be just as coarsely-textured as its red counterpart, but it can also be more delicate and refined, evoking the luxurious rather than the austere. It can also be subdued and subtle, or pop with vitality before our eyes.
In essence, white-brick is whatever you want it to be: sophisticated or blunt, overpowering or underplayed, but if utilized with care and precision, it can always be magical.
The following 9 examples showcase the wonder of white-brick interiors.
1) Beautiful Blends
When nearly everything is white, elegant and smooth, adding white-brick to the mix keeps the flow intact but also allows for some variation through vivid texturing. Here, cracks and uneven incisions in the brick patterns helps the walls to stand out but never overwhelm.
2) Simple Contrasts
Rough versus smooth—the junction between these two walls provides a vivid clash of aesthetics. Additionally, the pieces of framed artwork are made more noticeable through the simple contrast of black against white.
3) Industrial Meets Elegant
A stunning example of white brick’s power to add sophistication and charm.
This home combines industrial elements such as exposed wires with more refined components, like the yellow chairs, a table laden with wine glasses, and of course beautiful white-brick walls that are smoother and more luxurious than in previous examples.
4) Visually Dynamic
Youthful, edgy, and rich with pop-culture elements, this apartment aims for a gritty and minimalist look with its rough-textured white walls.
Moreover, the absence of furnishings also instills a sense of rugged austerity, while the simple contrast of black and white enables the shelves, toys and television to jump boldly forth in our eyes.
5) Colourful & Eclectic
In a roomful of unique furniture, vibrant splashes of blue and yellow, strange art, and abundant wooden elements, the purpose of this white-brick wall isn’t to draw our eye or leap sharply into focus, but to unify the various elements through a gentle and noninvasive colour palette. Here, the white-brick plays a secondary role, but still a crucial one.
6) Rugged Refinement
An interplay between the sophisticated furniture, curtains and rug is contrasted vividly against the abrasive white wall, creating a striking balance between luxury and ruggedness.
7) Artful Blends
Although not quite an actual wall, these four pieces of art employ a white-brick motif that allow them to blend cleverly into the background. And because they’re so precisely laid out and symmetrical, the brick patterning seems to continue from one frame to the next. How cool is that?
8) Distinct Lines
For a home so rich in white furniture, this back wall is easily the most dramatic and noticeable design feature. The use of deep grooves, consistent patterning, and bricks of a larger size enables them to stand out and dominate everything else.
9) Simply Gorgeous
It doesn’t get any more beautiful than this. Here, we have a random mix of very light browns alongside the more plentiful white bricks, resulting in a subtle blend of colours which attract but never overwhelm.
The soft whites also harmonize perfectly with the gentle palette that’s used throughout this interior. What we’re left with is a home that’s tranquil in tone, but with enough colour to remain interesting.
There we have it—nine examples of this building material’s artistic potential.
Rugged or smooth, dynamic or understated, white-brick has the power to transform, uplift and inspire your decor.
