As a southern interior designer, I often get clients who want their interior spaces to have that "New Orleans loft" feel. But how can that be done without spending a fortune is the question. A main piece of advice I always give my client's is to first pay attention to what they have on their walls. Walls are the backdrop to every space, so it's very important that they are treated appropriately! The color and texture of a wall, the art that's on it, and the lighting that a wall gets are all equally important factors when thinking about wall applications.
When clients say they want a "New Orleans loft feel," I immediately think exposed brick, concrete, wood, and maybe even some graffitti! But not everyone can afford the downtown loft with exposed brick walls and concrete beams. So then how can that look be achieved? You could hire a faux finisher to paint an accent brick wall in your space, but even that can get expensive sometimes. Another alternative would be to use a fabulous wallpaper! Now wait! I know what you're thinking. I said wallpaper and you immediately thought of that ugly floral print on the walls in your grandma's house back in the day. That's not what I'm talking about. Wallpaper has actually come a long way since those days. Below are some of my favorite industrial style wallpapers that can add character to your space and achieve that "loft-like" feel without spending a fortune.
