Reclaimed wood looks great in both modern and traditional interiors.  Reclaimed wood cladding and boards can be stained, painted or left in their natural state.  Not only can you use reclaimed wood but old doors, windows and shutters can quickly turn a wall from ordinary to interesting.

Make a statement by hanging your artwork gallery-style on the walls.  Hang pieces in groups or install ledges to prop art against the wall.  A gallery-style art wall can hide a multitude of sins (nail holes, paint errors) and will personalize your space.

Brick is always a classic and many converted loft spaces and traditional homes have areas of brick in their interiors.  Brick can be painted or left in its natural state, lending well to the modern industrial vibe or old-world charm.
