The exposed brick wall in a small bedroom is even more fun to work with as it brings an air of warmth and coziness to the modest room. A smart strategy here is to opt for the monotonous look (something we advised against in larger rooms) just to avoid visual fragmentation. This can mean painting the accent brick wall white to let it blend with the rest of the room.
As an alternative to paint or wallpaper a simple way to bring some cloudy inspiration into your bedroom is by hanging cloud-like objects above your bed. Check out this clever light fixture from Caisak or these DIY cloud puffs made from white stuffing.
Start here with a soothing backdrop that is devoid of too much color and work outwards by eliminating the unnecessary. Minimalism poise and the right lighting are the key components here.
This is a smart option for those looking to add natural stone to their existing modern bedroom in a curated fashion that does not force you to completely rip out the current walls.
But taking the opposite approach of making the brick wall the focal point in the small bedroom also works at times especially when you want a unique headboard wall! Once again it’s horses for courses and what works in one tiny bedroom might not quite seem equally impressive in another with an entirely different theme and style.
This means that you can pretty much turn a bedroom of almost any style (almost) into one that seems Zen-inspired. Obviously styles such as Bohemian eclectic or shabby chic are quickly out of the running but industrial rustic and even Mediterranean styles can embrace the timeless Zen look.
