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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Clouds can be perfect for nurseries too. The nursery featured below again from Mad About the House is entirely painted in an airy shade of blue with wispy clouds flowing across the ceilings and into the walls. Now that’s some serious art!
