Bedroom Wall Decor Ideas
Our bedrooms are a sanctuary to rest and relax from the demands of the day. As a result, your bedroom should be filled with decor ideas that bring character, as well as calm. In other words, don’t be afraid to decorate with individuality, but also remember how you want to use the space. Bedroom wall decor ideas can play a big part in this. For example, if you love stealing a few hours away with a great book, then introduce stylish wall shelves for your collection. On the other hand, framed artwork and accessories can help create a relaxing style sanctuary with personality. Often calm spaces are thought of with white or neutral walls. However, calm doesn’t necessarily mean minimal and some of the best serene bedroom spaces we've seen celebrate a more maximalist approach!
By surrounding yourself with all the things you love, you can create a calm, contented atmosphere for rest and relaxation. So, don’t hold back on fabulous patterned wallpaper and fill your walls with personal photos, gorgeous greenery and glamorous artwork. Another important consideration for the perfect bedroom scheme is colour. Whilst neutral shades are effortlessly elegant, dark or earth tones help achieve a cosy, rich and calming scheme. These schemes can also be paired with pops of bright colour or showstopping metallic finishes to bring the room to life. So, to help inspire your dream decor, here are our 5 top wall decor ideas for a beautiful bedroom like no other!

Shelving provides both practical storage space and the opportunity to have fun with your styling. As one of the easiest wall decor ideas for the bedroom, shelves can create instant impact. Firstly, wall shelves allow a unique focal point for the walls. Also, floating wall shelves are perfect for showcasing personal mementos and collected treasures.
In addition to practical benefits, shelves also look fabulously chic! We love painting shelves the same colour as the walls to blend in beautifully with the rest of the scheme. However, contrasting colours also look amazing and promise to add extra interest to your walls. From classic wood or marble designs, to rattan shelving and the contemporary geometric shelves, the options are endless… So, choose a design that works for you and get ready to style up a storm!

In addition, with so many patterns available, wallpaper can achieve any look imaginable.

As one of our all-time favourite bedroom wall decor ideas, you can’t go wrong with gold! Above all, gold tones breathe new life into an interior and introduce plenty of welcome glamour. Also, gold accessories go beautifully with every colour palette, from dark and dramatic to light and bright. So, if your scheme is missing a little je ne sais quoi, chances are you need a glimmer of gold! From matt finishes to antique brass tones and high-shine textures, glamorous gold wall accessories take your interior to the next level…
Gold wall art or ornate gold frames are a great way to introduce this timeless trend to your home. However, our personal favourite bedroom wall decor ideas are the quirky pieces packed with personality. For example, our Co-founder Jane has displayed beautiful bird and heart accessories against a chinoiserie headboard for a showstopping bedroom scheme. To recreate the look in your home, choose the Origami Eagle Decoration and try displaying our gold padlocks against the wall. Another fabulous example of the beauty of gold decor ideas is our Wild Rose Wall Art Decoration. Glamorous, playful and oh-so chic, gold wall decorations in the bedroom promise an instant style statement!

In the same vein as glamorous gold decorations, we believe every bedroom needs a piece of art on the walls! Whether classic or contemporary, art brings character and interest and is therefore a real talking point. Artwork is also incredibly personal and the perfect final touch to complete your dream decor scheme! So, whether you’re creating a gallery way or displaying a few of your favourite pieces, art is essential.
From beautiful paintings to elegant prints and modern line drawings, there are so many ways to celebrate unique artwork. Also, you don’t have to stick to the rules when it comes to display. Quirky wall art looks incredible in the bedroom, especially when paired with traditional art pieces or atmospheric photography prints. Therefore, when planning the wall decor ideas for your bedroom, why not include a statement wall hanging?! Our favourites include the Bamboo Fan, Vintage Metal Star and gorgeous Distressed bronze Angel Wings!

Finally, we couldn’t finish our top bedroom wall decor ideas without mentioning mirrors! Mirrors have many practical benefits and are incredibly versatile. Firstly, these decorative design heroes help create the illusion of extra space in the room. Therefore, a mirror is essential for smaller bedrooms and guest rooms. In addition, mirrors are designed in all shapes and sizes to suit every bedroom scheme.
Whilst larger mirrors create instant impact, smaller designs can be just as effective. All mirrors help to bounce light and space back into the room and are therefore a real must-have for any modern bedroom! For a artistic display, hang a trio of mirrors together to create an individual approach to practical wall art. Alternatively, a larger wall mirror can be a great centrepiece for a quirky style spot on your dresser!
