Master bedroom decor is drastically different than a second or third bedroom. It’s meant to radiate luxury and your knowledge of style. Unwind and set the mood for a night in - with a personal touch! We’ve combined expert tips with bedroom wall art trends to give you several simple ways to elevate your master bedroom.

Creating Your Sanctuary: Master Bedroom Decor

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. Cosy 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 decor. You can always add edgy decor 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 decor ideas if you try to complete your space right off the bat.  

Bedroom Wall Ideas

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 decor 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 Decor 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 decor.

The minimalist approach will allow you to pick daring decor 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 second-hand 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.

Showcase Your Personality with Bedroom Wall Decor

Because your master bedroom is your most personal space, it’s imperative to show off your personal style! Beyond color scheme and overall aesthetic, your unique interests should be scattered throughout the room. Consider using wall decor to display your personal taste in music, film, or pop culture in general. If you have a favorite movie or book character, search for a piece of wall art that celebrates the story you’re passionate about! The beauty of wall art is that it can be swapped out as your interests change. Another benefit to using pop culture-inspired wall art in your master bedroom is to bond with your partner! If you have a specific shared interest with your partner, hang a piece of wall decor that celebrates your joint passion! Choose an artistic depiction of a celebrity, music artist, or film character who you both love.

Complementing Your Artwork with Bedroom Wall Decor

Although we might be a little biased towards wall art, it’s not the only form of wall decor you can use to transform your master bedroom! There are plenty of dynamic elements you can hang on and around your wall. For example, floating shelves will never go out of style! Because your master bedroom is such a personal space, try placing pieces of personal memorabilia on the shelves around your bed. Another way to decorate your bedroom walls is to add hanging plants. You can still use a piece of wall art as the main focal point in your space, but additional wall decor will create a cozy feel. Finally, consider adding texture to an accent wall with antique-style paint techniques for a perfectly imperfect touch.

Edgy Bedroom Wall Decor

For an extra-edgy decor 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 decor, that’s what makes his work even more enticing. 2024 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 decor. 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.

Classic Master Bedroom Decor Ideas

Vintage-inspired wall art can be a fantastic way to add a classic, timeless touch to a mature master bedroom. Whether you opt for a real antique or a print inspired by a bygone era, the effect can be transformative. Vintage art often features romantic imagery, such as botanical prints, landscapes, or portraits, that can evoke a sense of nostalgia and create a calming and elegant mood. Additionally, these pieces often have a sense of history and craftsmanship that can make them feel like cherished heirlooms rather than just another decoration. Whether you choose to create a gallery wall or focus on a single standout piece, incorporating vintage-inspired art into your master bedroom can be a beautiful and rewarding way to create a classic, inviting space.

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.”

Bedroom Artwork: Shapes

Once you’ve determined the ideal canvas size, the next step is selecting the perfect layout and shape. View our list of layouts below, and choose the canvas that matches your individual style and personality:

Simple and traditional: 1-Piece Canvas

Daring and trendy: 2-Piece Split Canvas

Chic and contemporary: 3-Piece Multi-Panel Canvas

Bold and fun: 7-Piece Hexagonal Canvas

Q: How do I decorate a large bedroom wall?

A: A large bedroom wall means you have to choose decor that is also oversized. The goal is to make your space look proportionate. The biggest mistake amateur designers make is choosing wall decor that is too small for their space. Check out our Ultimate Wall Art Size Guide for the perfect equation to determine the right wall art dimensions for your large bedroom wall. Plus, you should always choose a size bigger than you initially anticipate!

Q: How do I decorate an empty bedroom wall?

A: If you have a bedroom wall that is entirely empty – congratulations! The possibilities are endless. The first step is to determine whether you want to put a piece of furniture against the blank wall to fill your space. A credenza or dresser is a great addition to any bedroom that’s feeling a little empty. Next, choose a piece of artwork that will fill your open wall space. We suggest a multi-panel, unframed canvas for a modern look that will take up the perfect amount of room.
