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.”
Selecting a Bedroom Wall Art Shape
After you’ve selected your perfect size, the next step is choosing the right shape for your space. Match your canvas shape to your personal style with this list of layouts:
The classic canvas: 1-Piece Canvas
The trendy two-piece: 2-Piece Split Canvas
The modern multi-panel: 3 to 5-Piece Multi-Panel Canvas
The funky hexagon: 7-Piece Hexagonal Canvas
