The brick wall is an essential part of this narrative and any industrial-style interior without it is definitely incomplete. Of course you can give these industrial bedrooms a softer and cozier ambiance by blending in contemporary touches and going down the path of industrial-chic.
No collection of bedrooms is complete without a few modern inspirations that range from the transitional to the contemporary. It is the stone you choose that makes a huge difference here and the likes of split-faced marble work better in these settings.
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.
When decorating a bedroom with brick walls do not focus on the walls themselves but take a decorating approach like you would do with any other space. By fixating too much on the uniqueness of the walls one might allow them to take over completely and define the style of the room.
Pop Art Decorations featured a variety of custom headboards by Astrid Oyo — one of which has a blue cloudy sky on it. As an alternative to permanently changing your walls for this type of look why not go with a simple tapestry to hang over your bed? Urban Outfitters has this gorgeous option featuring both clouds and the cosmos together.
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.
