A bedroom is the place where you start and end your day. Here, you unwind and spend a good amount of time exclusively with yourself. It should, therefore, be the kind of room where you can feel most at ease. It should be relaxing, inviting, and have a sense of harmony about it. When it comes to bedroom decoration, the walls of the room should be its cynosure.
Moreover, the wall decor creates a suitable ambiance inside the room. The design and decor of the bedroom should be such that it inspires you in the morning and sets your mood for the rest of the day. Likewise, when you retire for the day, its tranquil effect should provide a healing touch to your mind and soul.
Ideas for Wall Decor
Apart from selecting the right set of colors for the walls, choosing decorative items which are "in sync" with the theme of the room, is equally important.
At first look, one might wonder if the wall is indeed the right place for a blank canvas; after all, why put up one when you can put up a painting instead? However, sometimes less is more, and if it's a simple look that you're after, then this one is the perfect way to add that small yet interesting touch to your bedroom walls. Just get a piece of fabric, place it inside a beautiful frame, and put it up on the wall. You can use many such frames to create patterns on the wall.
Light up Your Walls
Lights are lovely because they bring in that aura of positivity to the room, and make it appear inviting. Also, lights can work like magic and add that cozy feeling. It all depends on how you use them, what lights you choose, and where you choose to place them. In the image, you can see two lamps, one on each side of the bed.
While choosing the lampshade, go for one that complements the color on the walls. This look works best if your bedroom has a theme wall, and it is on this wall that you should place the lights. Use your creativity to add unique touches to the complete look.
If a canopy bed is not your thing, just arrange beautiful shapes of valances from a fabric in soft pastel shades, and stick them on the wall just above the bed! Who said decorating your bedroom was difficult anyway?
"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?" Remember the fairy tale in which Snow White's stepmother has conversations with her mirror? While they don't make magical mirrors these days, when it comes to home decor, mirrors can really work like magic! When placed strategically, to begin with, they can effectively create the illusion of a bigger room.
And who needs artwork for a beautiful room, when you can use mirrors to reflect its beauty on the walls? Another way to play with mirrors is to allow a large mirror, which is embellished with a vintage frame, to be the focus of the room (as shown in the other image). Make sure you place the mirrors in such a way that maximum amount of light gets reflected, thus brightening up the room.
Apart from the mere love of art, there can be other reasons to put up paintings. If you have a passion for something, just give it a proud place on your bedroom walls through paintings. What's more, you can even pour your heart on canvas, and use it to give the walls a new face!
If yours is a contemporary bedroom, then this idea is sure to land up in your list of 'Best Bedroom Decorating Ideas'. It's all about adding geometric patterns on your walls. So, whether it's huge rectangles or small symmetric wooden shapes, there's practically no limit to the shapes to choose from.
All you need to zero in on a shape, is to let your imagination take flight! Sounds interesting, isn't it? You can either choose to cover the entire wall with these patterns, or select a specific spot (maybe somewhere above the bed as shown in the image to the left). As for creating the patterns, you can either go for wallpapers, draw some shapes using stencils, or get some decals and just stick them on!
Do not use the shelves to stack books and DVDs only. Instead, place interesting objects such as a lovely photo frame or a flower vase with fresh flowers. A grid shelf can be conveniently used to display unique items in your personal collection, such as sports memorabilia.
