We got an email from Jamie: "I just bought a loft with an 18 ft wall that is painted white cinder block (right pic). What D-I-Y coverings or facades would you suggest to warm up the space? I have considered narrow horizontal wood paneling or cork. If it turns out well, I would like to apply the same treatment to the balcony overhead."

Jamie, congrats on what looks like an amazing loft! We really like the idea of adding horizontal wood paneling or cork to this space, we'd just avoid going too dark with the tone of the material. Let's hear from the readers and see what they think - please share your thoughts and ideas with Jamie in the comments below.
