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.
Painting the brick wall white will take a few additional coats of white paint than normal because of the porous nature of bricks. Another cool trendy look is the whitewashed brick wall that gives the room a surface that seems authentically aged and rustic. Gray is the next best option and is the front-runner in contemporary and minimal bedrooms.
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.
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.
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!
Maybe you are kind of a person and want to showcase your talent with a can of paint on that brick wall! Others might go down the path of smart displays artwork and brilliant lighting. Irrespective of your choice do not be afraid to push the envelope!
