Proper wall art is vital to every space, but it may be even more important in bedrooms where there are typically fewer design elements to add visual interest. Whenever possible, use wall decor to anchor each of the distinct function areas in your space, such as above the bed, beside some seating and in the dressing space. Then, add other artwork to any walls that feel too blank. When choosing the pieces that will decorate your walls, try to keep variety in mind. Play with colors, textures and artistic materials for the artwork itself, and don't be afraid to mix different sizes, shapes and frame styles.
A wall mural or painting can be a great headboard. If you're wanting a softer more padded effect, paint or print your art on a large canvas, mount it to a frame and pad the backside for a custom, upholstered art headboard. Use a collection of smaller art store canvases to create an artsy gallery headboard wall. Paint them in a semi or high-gloss, bold color for a contemporary look, like the bedroom shown below. You could also used recycled cardboard boxes if pre-stretched canvases are expensive. Paint the sides in a contrasting color to add dimension.
A mix of geometric prints, a flying washi tape airplane, and a few knick-knacks turn this kids room into a space to dream and create. The accents of triangles, stripes, and circles in this room add interest and playfulness to this Scandinavian space. Someone loves foxes, and we love this room. Though highly modern, the wood paneling, teepee-style bookshelf, and tent bed make this room positively kiddish and outdoorsy. If there’s one example of the power of accent pieces, this is it. Throw blankets and pillows bring out the colors of a tropical print, and the result is a kids room as tranquil as the beach itself.
The eye is immediately drawn to the silhouetted pine tree decals, but the rustic accents in the rest of this nursery (like the unique crib textiles) make it feel like a modern cabin. The tree decals are a bit more subtle in this nursery, where white pops on gray walls. Colorful birds add playfulness and warmer hues. Got some plain white walls? Why not dress them up with some watermelon decals? Carrying the whimsy of the walls are heavily patterned beds in warm colors, and a modern nightstand both kids and adults go crazy for.
Your bedroom shouldn’t just be the place where you sleep. Ideally, the space should feel like somewhere you want to spend your free time. One easy way to achieve that is by adding a seating area that you can use when you don't feel like lounging in bed. As with any seating area, it’s important to identify which function it will fulfill. If you like to curl up with a good book, place a stately armchair next to a bookcase. If you’re all about catching up on your favorite shows, look for a loveseat or daybed that will give you room to stretch out.
