The best way to make a small space work is to find the hidden gems. The high ceilings, exposed brick and ridiculous skylight in this Chelsea one-bedroom gave us a pretty good foundation to go mountain-man modern.:: I love the sky light
Brick work done in arches is a great look. It makes the exposed bricks look more purposeful (as opposed to just leaving a wall exposed) and leaves the option to do something interesting inside the arches
This exposed brick wall is such a great feature. I'm glad they've kept the wall hangings simple and not over cluttered the space. The bed frame is usually not something I would pick ,but I admit it works really well in this room.
