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.
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.
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.
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.
The 90s were a time when home design and decorating moved towards a more sanitized look with bright colors of the 70s and 80s being replaced by more understated hues such as beige and white and simple straight lines taking over from eclectic designs.
