This is where you can go beyond the normal natural orangey-reddish hue of the brick and give it a finish that agrees with the color palette of your existing bedroom.
Unlike in most contemporary homes the Zen bedroom demands a warmer color scheme that is filled with gentle wooden tones. The color palette can still be strictly neutral but try staying away from colder and unappealing shades since visual harmony is also an essential part of the grand scheme of things. A touch of greenery is also an absolute must as nature and Japanese design go hand in hand.
With homeowners wanting to convert that old factory barn warehouse or even a church into a beautiful elegant and unique family home the brick wall once again found itself under the design spotlight. It has shown the world how an exposed brick wall in the bedroom is a treasure that can be showcased with pride and panache.
If your bedroom has a largely contemporary modern or transitional look about it then an accent brick wall might be all you need. Let the rest of the room evolve naturally with décor and accessories that you love.
Instead of a host of Asian decorating elements just add one or two like the Shoji screen Buddha statue lantern-style lighting or any other decorative piece you feel is appropriate. But the rest of the room can remain modern contemporary or minimal depending on your taste and the ambiance you wish to create. Small touches such as a potted plant or some bamboo shoots on the bedside table can also make a huge difference.
White is a popular choice in modern bedrooms for the exposed brick wall and it is a color that gives the bedroom a cheerful spacious demeanor even while blending in with the rest of the space.
