When creating a new attic/loft space, think about keeping a wall of exposed bricks and using it as part of your decoration. Look how stylish it looks against a backdrop of otherwise fairly muted colours - it all works together perfectly.
ACE HOTEL · Official Mfg. Co. / OMFGCO - our main door in Aus is red and often confused by guests as a fire escape so they don't know which door to go through to leave the building. Kind of fun to watch :)
