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.
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.
Instead of a host of Asian decorating elements just add one or two like the Shoji screen Buddha statue lantern-style lighting or any other decorative piece you feel is appropriate. But the rest of the room can remain modern contemporary or minimal depending on your taste and the ambiance you wish to create. Small touches such as a potted plant or some bamboo shoots on the bedside table can also make a huge difference.
As you will see with these amazing bedrooms most homeowners tend to prefer an accent stone wall even when opting for a full-fledged rustic style in the bedroom. This allows you to add additional textures gives the room a more cheerful visually lighter appeal and also makes the addition of the stone wall a lot easier. If you are not convinced about the accent stone wall then the next set of bedrooms offers another smart alternative.
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.
