Dreamy Guest Room Wall Decor

Your guest room should be a space that radiates rest and relaxation. Beyond the cozy fabrics and pile of pillows that are peppered around the sleeping space, wall art can add a significant level of comfort. Bare walls will make your guest space feel cold and unwelcoming. Choose a piece of wall decor that promotes a good night’s sleep. One of our top trending collections is the mystical wall art catalog. This selection of prints is full of cosmic-inspired artwork with an ethereal touch. Don’t be afraid to add darker tones to your guest room. Even though a light and bright guest room used to be the status quo, designers are daring to explore moodier hues. Create a dreamy atmosphere for your guests to enjoy.

Guest Room Wall Art: Pro Tip

Preview our expert article on how to create an inviting space for guests by reading through this bite-sized selection:

“Steal inspiration from hotel rooms when it comes to crafting your ultimate crash pad for guests. Make sure to center the bed, and place two matching nightstands on either side. For an extra-thoughtful touch, keep symmetrical vases of fresh-cut flowers on the top of each nightstand. Build a small seating area in the corner of the room, and make sure your guests have enough empty storage for their belongings.”

Personalized Guest Room Ideas

As we mentioned above, personalization is essential when creating a welcoming space for friends and family to enjoy. Besides adding cozy touches and calming details, you can also go the extra mile and order a piece of personalized décor for your specific guest. We offer customizable prints so you can add your loved one’s name to a stunning piece of artwork. The benefit of wall art is that you can swap it out depending on who is staying in your space! Wall art is low-cost and low-commitment, and your guests will be wowed by the ultra-personal touch. Choose a print that not only matches your décor, but also your guests’ unique personalities. You don’t have to get a separate piece of artwork for every family member, but choose a couple that frequent your guest room the most, and then hang a generic, love-inspired print when you have other visitors.

Top Guest Room Decorating Trends

Choose a bright-colored, eye-catching personalized print for maximum impact. For your mom, consider a piece of wall art with her favorite colors and a classic, floral theme. For your dad, choose a piece of artwork that represents a hobby you share. Your family will be tickled by your attention to detail and personalized décor. 2022 is all about designing a home that’s true to you. There’s nothing trendier than embracing your own unique style! Your guest room is the perfect space to play around with pops of playful décor. Plus, it can make your guests feel more comfortable to be surrounded by homey details that represent you.

Combining Style & Comfort

The key to a perfect guest room is balancing comfort and trends. Use cozy textiles to create a warm environment, and use wall art to add a splash of style.

Guest Room Wall Art: Pro Tip

Take a cue from our art director Tirzah Goodman and consider introducing a vintage floral revival into your guest space. This trend combines modern color palettes with classic prints. You can’t go wrong with a vintage pattern filled with flowers.

Cozy Color Schemes

Primary colors are all the rage this year. You can’t go wrong with these three classic shades. No matter how you implement this iconic trio, your guests will be taken by this trendy-meets-traditional color scheme. Looking for a subtler way to incorporate primary hues? Try adding one or two primary tones rather than all three at once.

Blue Guest Room Ideas

For example, consider adding a soothing shade of blue. Use blue-grey for a sophisticated look, or baby blue wall art for something soft and youthful.

Guest Room Wall Art: Pro Tip

Guest Room Wall Art Sizes

If you’re looking to fill the space above your guest bed with wall art, steal some tips from our Ultimate Wall Art Size Guide:

ABOVE FURNITURE

Wall art that you want to hang over furniture, such as a fireplace, a bed or a couch, should be between 2/3 and 3/4 of the furniture's width. To measure the ideal art size above your furniture, consider this example: If your couch is 6 feet wide, multiply it by 0.66 and 0.75. You need a canvas between 3.96 feet and 4.5 feet wide to fit impressively above the bed.
