The traditional choices such as Shoji screens bamboo décor small water features indoor ponds and that minimal platform bed which seems like a perfect fit in the Asian bedroom are options you can turn to. Lantern-style lighting also gives the room a more transcendental and calming appeal which modern lighting fixtures simply cannot deliver.
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.
Murals are also great alternatives to paint or wallpaper — especially for fuller images meant to encompass a whole wall. Take a look at how stunning this tall cloud mural looks in this urban apartment (featured on Vogesparis).
This bedroom featured on My Colortopia doesn’t have any actual cloud shapes on the walls or anywhere else in the room but still matches the atmosphere with the color choices of blue white silver and gray.
The Asian-style bedroom is obviously the most popular choice for homeowners who wish to embrace the Zen-inspired look. This allows you to balance all the elements that Feng Shui talks about and balance is indeed a key aspect of any interior that wants to exude this look of serenity.
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!
