When it comes to hanging art above the bed, the possibilities are endless. Introduce pattern by hanging multiple, coordinating prints; create height by utilizing a single large, vertical piece; or, add vibrant color to an otherwise neutral scheme.
Given that a bed is usually the focal point in most sleeping quarters, artwork is a vital element in the overall design of the bed wall and the bedroom itself. Often, we tend to play it safe and hang a single frame, or merely two side by side, but there are a plethora of other arrangements to explore when hanging art above the bed.
I love each of the options below. Whether you’re moving into a new room or redecorating your existing space, use these as potential inspiration for your bed wall.
These whimsical statements look fantastic above a bed. The tightly stacked frames create pattern and give you something to ponder each night before turning in, or make you chuckle upon waking. Are you really hustlin’ every day?
The pieces above the bed in this modern mountain house line up with the other windows and continue the rhythm around the room. They successfully bring the outside in, and are almost like make-believe windows.
The color scheme in this room is so lovely and soothing, it makes me want to nap right now. The geometric creates pattern but also does a great job of pulling the lavender colors together within the scheme, while the pale green wall acts as a contrasting background.
This bedroom proves that a traditional headboard is not always necessary. The tall artwork not only adds height to the low platform bed, but also gives the illusion of a grand headboard. The monochromatic gray color scheme is sophisticated, and the picture lights enhance the drama. This designer took a risk, and the space works beautifully.
What’s your preferred way to hang art above the bed?
