ideas for newly plastered walls

We have just covered some internal brick walls with plaster. Keen for people's thoughts on what we should do with the walls? Thinking of putting some shelving in...any other ideas? Previous owner stored their pool cues in there, but no pool table for us yet! Thanks.

Looks like a wonderfully big room @Ajmod. Can I ask what the room will be used for? Is it a family room or lounge room, for example? I'm sure the Workshop community will be able to come up with plenty of ideas for such a great space.

Thanks Jason. The room is big - 10x7 m. At the moment we're planning to use it as a casual/rumpas room.There's a nice big fireplace on the other side of the walls too.

 

The room is so big that we won't be furnishing it all at once - we'll pop some couches in, rug, tv etc which still only takes up about half the room! Other ideas very welcome.

Enormous space! Some modern shelving could be great. Here's some inspiration...

A series of big artworks would also look fantastic. Or something like vintage posters/prints if that is more to your taste.

I'd add in a photowall along with some nice shelving @Ajmod

Large retro posters would be fun.
