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!
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.
If you already have a brick wall in your bedroom most of the work is obviously done and all you now need is a bit of cleaning and the right sealing agent that will prevent disintegration over time.
Stone works in a variety of styles that go beyond rustic and one of our favorites in this regard is Mediterranean. A bedroom with beautiful limestone walls and terracotta flooring immediately reminds us of the very best of Mediterranean architecture and throw in a couple of arched windows and warm lighting and you are pretty much done!
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.
There are plenty of reasons for the new-found love for brick walls in bedrooms that go beyond just aesthetics. It is a trend that is driven largely by practicality and sheer necessity as the adaptive reuse of old structures has forced the hand of some of the best architects and interior designers across the planet.
