Roman Brick Wall

Roman bricks are usually longer and narrower than the standard brick size.

Brick Panels

Instead of a plain white wall, interior designer Diana Zamora opted for white faux brick panels for the living room, making a pretty contrast with the opposite wall covered in black wallpaper. These panels can be DIY'd by adding grooves to standard plyboard panels.

If exposed brick wall is not in your options, you can still pull off a rustic charm by putting up faux brick walls. Install brick hardboard panel to your wall and paint it with white. To help you get started, follow these steps.
