Bedroom Wall Decor

As you have grown and matured, so, too, has your bedroom wall decor. By now, hopefully, the teen rocker posters and tie-dye sheets are a thing of the past. Here are some ideas for wall decor that suits an elegant, sophisticated, and grown-up bedroom.

Art and Photos

A common sight in a bedroom is one large art print sitting squarely above the headboard. An eye-catching wall hanging such as this gives prominence to the bed, creating an important focal point in the room. However, above-the-headboard art doesn't have to be a single large piece. When grouped together in similar or cohesive frames, a collection of photographs (nature scenes or family snapshots) or smaller works of art also draws the eye to the bed.  

Mirrors

Mirrors perform several important functions in a bedroom. They let you check your appearance before you head out the door in the morning. They also bounce light—daylight or lamplight—around a space, which can make a dark bedroom brighter and livelier. If the mirror above a bed faces a blank wall or something rather drab, hang it at a slight angle, tilted out from the wall and it will reflect the colorful bedding below instead.

Decals

Popular and fun, wall decals let you inject personality into your bedroom. You can choose from hundreds of designs, including symbols, patterns, and quotes, or you can have a custom decal made. They stick to the wall, which makes them an easy DIY project. Choose lots of small shapes to hang top-to-bottom on a wall, creating an all-over design. Or, pick one large decal to create impact behind the bed or around a window.

Paint Effects

You can use paint to add color or neutral serenity to a room, but you can also use it to create decorative effects on the walls. For vivid character, mark off a geometric pattern, such as stripes in two or more colors, a checkerboard, or harlequin diamonds. Paint a whimsical freehand design of your own creation, or use a stencil to accurately render shapes and motifs. Or, choose from the many paint effects that can put suede, denim, faux-bois, or chamois texture on the walls.

Collections

Though we often think of displaying collectibles in the living spaces of our homes, we don't always think of them for the bedroom. But collections that are personal and meaningful are at home in this private space, too. An assortment of blue-and-white plates or framed vintage hankies can become a pretty array above a headboard. By mounting shelves, cubbyholes, or shadowboxes to the wall, you can show off any three-dimensional objects, from teacups to retro clocks to rare books.
