Brick

We love the industrial yet cosy look of brick interiors, especially when used as a feature wall or painted. I think brick looks especially good when it is lit in the correct way (LED strip lights or up and down wall lights). With all our current building regulations and energy ratings to meet, we can't always open up and expose the original brick - but there are now ways around that with decorative brick effect 'tiles' or insulated cavity walls (for new builds).
