Creating Your Sanctuary: Master Bedroom Décor

Escape from the stresses of everyday life in your sophisticated, serene bedroom. Create a space that will nudge you into a tranquil sleep. Your master bedroom is your dreamscape, so commit to the ethereal feel! Fluffy, light-colored textiles are a no-brainer. Cozy is the name of the game – but don’t sacrifice style! If you don’t know where to start, build your whimsical space with delicate décor. You can always add edgy décor after you have a polished, peaceful base. You don’t have to decorate your master bedroom all at once! Interior design is a process. Allow yourself to slowly collect items that bring you joy. You’ll miss out on tons of trendy items and ever-changing décor ideas if you try to complete your space right off the bat.

Try a dreamy print with a soft-focus appearance and a slightly surreal theme. Our “dreamy” collection is perfect for elevating your master bedroom while still maintaining a sense of refinement. Focus on cool colors if you want an extra-relaxing look. For an unexpected wall décor idea, try hanging a vertical painting on the side of your bed over your bedside table. While above-bed artwork undoubtedly makes a statement (+ it’s a great way to fill empty space,) this asymmetrical look will have a more eclectic appearance. If you can’t sacrifice symmetry, try one painting over each bedside table! This will maintain a unique look while still satisfying your desire for balance.

Dare to Be Different: Wall Décor for Bedrooms

Even though master bedrooms are typically classy, sophisticated, and traditional, you can opt to take a more modern route! Add a contemporary edge to your space without sacrificing style. Explore more industrial or eclectic pieces, and offset the quirky elements by being ultra-selective with your décor. The minimalist approach will allow you to pick daring décor that pops. Rather than just choosing decorations that look attractive, select pieces that mean something to you and make a statement! Avoid mass-produced furniture and accessories, and opt for something more niche and unique. Browse secondhand stores for one-of-a-kind pieces and unconventional ideas. From light fixtures to side tables, don’t be afraid to mix and match different styles as long as you don’t crowd your space.

Edgy Bedroom Wall Décor

For an extra-edgy décor idea for your master bedroom, our brand-new Banksy-inspired collection is ideal! Curated by our art director, Tirzah Goodman, this street-art style selection is perfect for the daring designer. While Banksy might not be the first artist who comes to mind for master bedroom décor, that’s what makes his work even more enticing. 2022 is about taking risks, and a graffiti-inspired print is perfect for adding something unforeseen. While you might not have many houseguests in your master bedroom, that’s even more reason to take chances with your décor. Decorate with hints of gray to tie in your Banksy print, but don’t forget to add some warm tones so your interior doesn’t look too cold. Colors like burnt orange, deep red, and golden yellow will still look modern while keeping a cozy feel.

Décor expert Yoko Chow shares another tip regarding bedroom décor trends.

"Given the bedroom is normally used as a space to relax and to rest, minimalistzen, or beach house decor elements may be good to avoid distractions and improve focus."

This style of wall art uses the human figure in combination with modern lines and shapes for a truly contemporary appearance.

Peaceful Color Palette

For a calming color palette, incorporate colors inspired by nature. Blues, greens, and neutrals are ideal for master bedroom décor. Hang wall art with these earthy tones to create a look of understated luxury.

Black and White Abstract Wall Art

Sometimes the best color palette uses no color at all! Black and white is a classic color combo, and it provides an effortless touch of class. Add an abstract print in black and white to give your master bedroom a sleek new look.  

Bedroom Décor: Pro Tips

Looking for a way to blend contemporary artwork with a natural color palette? Our art director Tirzah Goodman has the solution! You don’t have to sacrifice a playful style for sophistication. Experiment with our vibrant, greenery collection for a look that’s has both panache and pizazz.

Master Bedroom Wall Art: Sizes

When it comes to the sizing of your canvas, we have an entire guide for selecting the perfect print size. Below are a few excerpts to get you started:

“Your wall art should take about 60% to 75% of the available empty wall space, the portion not covered by moldings or furniture. Measure the height and width of the wall. Now, multiply the measurements by both 0.6 and 0.75. As a result, you will get the range of canvas print sizes to suit the space.

For instance, if your blank wall is 9 feet tall and 5 feet wide, multiply 9 by 0.6 to get the low end of the ideal height range. Then multiply 9 by 0.75 to get the high end of the ideal height range. Do the same for your wall's 5 feet width. The ideal height of the canvas would be 5.4 - 6.75 feet and the ideal width would be 3 feet - 3.75 feet.

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 bed 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.”
