An unfinished wall may be just what a room needs to complete its look. For those of you who have an older home where brick walls already exist, skip the remodeling and highlight your home’s unique interior. Decorative wall accents can be a DIY project if you prefer faux brick or you can do the real deal by updating the brick on your home’s existing walls. Exposed brick is a classy way to make a room trendy yet traditional.
