Beyond Bedroom Wall Art: Pro Tips

Need a little style guidance? Tirzah Goodman, ElephantStock’s resident art director, suggests trending styles.

Summer greenery is a hot trend for summer, and it is ultra-versatile. This vibrant style can work with a variety of interiors, both classic and contemporary. If you’re simply looking for a way to brighten up your space, you can’t go wrong with palm-style prints.

Speaking of greenery, pair your new print with a live houseplant for a boost of positive energy. Our interior design expert Yoko Chow (of Yoko Chow LLC) shares her botanical tips:

“I always consider [the theory of] biophilia when designing a space. A number of studies have shown that indoor plants are effective at reducing stress, improving productivity, and even purifying polluted air. Introducing indoor plants and greenery into a room is an easy trick to try. The options are vast, and so are the benefits.”

Choosing a Color Scheme

Which colors bring you joy? While the rest of your home may rely on current color schemes to avoid looking dated, you have much more freedom with your bedroom color palette. If you’ve always been a fan of warm tones like yellow and orange, let yourself experiment with these playful hues. For the homeowner who is cool, calm, and collected, opt for shades like teal, sage green, and lavender. If you’re looking for clever ways to mix neutrals and vibrant colors, check out our guide on how to marry the two contrasting color schemes.

Black and Blue Bedroom Wall Art

You can’t go wrong with classic. If bright colors feel too flashy, consider traditional tones like black and navy blue. Charcoal grey and cobalt look sophisticated and sleek. Shop bedroom wall art with black and blue details for an easy way to incorporate this dynamic duo.

Bedroom Wall Art Size Possibilities

There are plenty of canvas sizes to choose from, and each set of dimensions comes with its own benefits. That’s why we put together our comprehensive wall art size guide. Here is a brief excerpt to assist you in choosing a canvas to hang above your bed:

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 a large bed.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where should I hang my wall art in my bedroom?

A: Hang your print wherever you have wide, empty space. Many designers choose to hang a piece of eye-catching wall art above the bed to fill the area in between the headboard and the ceiling. You can also opt for smaller symmetrical prints over each bedside table. Finally, if you don’t’ have a TV across from your bed, hang a painting across from your sleeping space so you wake up to something special every morning.

Q: How can I upgrade & decorate my bedroom walls?

A: There are tons of ways to add a splash of style to your bedroom walls. As detailed in this article, wall art is our top choice due to the affordability and high visual impact. You can also opt for floating shelves. Mirrors are another popular option if you want to create the illusion of a larger space. You can also paint an accent wall and give your bedroom a more dynamic look.

Q: How can I decorate a large bedroom wall?

A: Oversized wall art is the perfect way to upgrade a large bedroom wall. Choose a canvas that has super large dimensions to properly fill your space. As we mentioned, the biggest mistake you can make is opting for a canvas that is too small for its respective wall. If you have a large wall to decorate, the bigger the canvas the better! You can also create a gallery wall for a dynamic option, if you’d rather use several small prints rather than a single large canvas.  

Q: What is the best décor to put on bedroom walls?

A: The best décor depends on your personal style! We’ve highlighted our favorite trends, but your bedroom décor is ultimately up to you. Because it is the most personal space in your home, make sure that your sleeping space is reflective of who you are. Create your own sanctuary with calming wall art that makes you feel at home. When in doubt, consider abstract art in your favorite colors or a landscape of your favorite scenery.
