Wall decor for bedrooms is an essential but under-appreciated aspect of bedroom design. The walls form an extensive space, and how you decorate them will influence how your bedroom appears and the mood it creates.
For most people, the primary aspect to consider when considering bedroom designs is to make them comfortable and peaceful. Numerous methods exist to achieve this: wallpaper, paint, art, or paneling. Whatever you decide to do, it is crucial to remember the color.
Suppose you’re considering a suitable color scheme for your home’s bedroom. In that case, I’d suggest a warm, inviting shade that doesn’t stimulate your mind, according to interior design expert Irene Gunter, founder of Gunter & Co. ‘My most popular colors are Temple by Paint & Paper Library and Setting Plaster by Farrow & Ball. Blush hues such as these, especially in the bedroom, create a relaxing and welcoming environment.
As with cloakrooms, bedrooms areare perfect for experimenting with wall décor. It’s a quiet space that isn’t often the sight of guests. So where is more ideal for decorating and injecting a personal touch into your design?
USE A WRAPAROUND COLOR FOR AN ENVELOPING FEEL
Suppose there’s one place where you’d like to exude warmth and coziness, then it’s the bedroom. One of the most effective methods is to paint a single, deep color throughout the room. Look at the similar paint concept on the walls, skirting, and joinery in this design from An A-New Day Interior Design Studio.
The use of wraparound colors creates a warm and cozy shade that ties in with the trees visible from the window,’ explains the company’s founder Andrew Griffiths.’ This bedroom is located on the roof, and there are some odd angles and different ceiling heights. However, the color wash makes it easier to even this the visual.’
In addition to the shading shade that wraps around it, clever joinery is another technique that can be used to enhance the walls.
Andrew says that a wall with bespoke joinery is the most effective use of every corner, Andrew. The paneled cabinet fronts add personality to the space, but they’re designed as handles and completed in the same color as the walls; they are recessed rather than dominate the room as a large wardrobe could.’
USE WALL ART TO CREATE VISUAL INTEREST
Walls without art are an opportunity missed to add character, texture, and color to your bedroom. The best part is that adding artwork to your wall is relatively simple and affordable.
If you cannot afford single pieces of art, There are plenty of alternatives like posters and photographs. Or you can source unique artwork online. You could think out of the box using the wall with a texture or beautiful frame-mounted artwork or fabric.
When deciding how to display your art, there’s no need to take the standard route. Artwork displayed in unusual arrangements or styles can create a distinctive look. Keep the eye moving through the space, as in this style created by New York and Chicago-based designer Michael Del Piero.
Artwork randomly placed can create an elegant and stylish room, according to the designer. Because this space was designed to serve adults and children, the area needed to appeal to both. To ensure this, we picked small-scale, child-like artwork and then hung it in random patterns to give it a more playful vibe.’
USE DIFFERENT TONES TO CREATE AN ILLUSION OF HEIGHT
If you decide to paint your bedroom walls, there are plenty of concepts to explore. One is a dual-tone effect that utilizes darker and lighter shades of the same color for the ceiling to appear higher. This is a clever design technique taught by experts, especially when you wish to make your tiny bedroom seem more significant.
When using two shades of paint, use the darker shade for the bottom part of the wall to secure the border. Stippling the lighter shade above it to create an illusion of height, claims Irene Gunter, founder of Gunter & Co.
The color palette of the main bedroom in the Notting Hill family home was in the style of the Puzzle IV work of Kim Bartelt that hangs above the bed. We chose to paint the walls with Paint & Paper Library’s Rouge II on the bottom part of the wall, and the same color was paired with 50 percent white added to create a light shade for the top part of the wall.’
CREATE A DECORATIVE MURAL EFFECT
A beautiful mural could bring a wall to life. It can be small or large. If you want to develop custom mural ideas, you’d require some severe pockets. The good thing is that you can get the same look using wallpaper, paint, or tiles.
In this bedroom designed by the interior design firm HAM the gorgeous wallpaper runs dynamically along the wall capturing all the hues within the space.
Creating a peaceful space is a top priority for bedroom decor. In this case, we drew inspiration taken from the Arts & Crafts bones of the building. According to interior design expert Kate Cox at HAM Interiors, we decided to go with an attractive Tree of Life wallpaper in the main bedroom,
When wallpaper is employed, the result is very similar to a painting by an artist and gives the impression of luxury.
We like how the pattern creates a softness while the muted shade provides a tranquil tone. Although significant, the room’s design is long and wide, and a sloping ceiling was a challenge,’ says Kate. The large width of the wallpaper was a perfect fit for the room, and its theme, which gave it width, and the downwards-facing vines drew attention to the slope making the room appear taller.’
CHOOSE PINK AND WHITE STRIPES FOR A FUN AND PLAYFUL LOOK
Stripes, be it wallpaper or paint, can give a modern edge to any design. Soft shades can create a playful fun look that could make a great kid’s bedroom concept.
The blush pink paints are incredibly simple to use. They are universally flattering. According to color expert and paint specialist Annie Sloan, they instantly add warmth and sophistication to an area when applied correctly. Consider the neutral blush pinks as the foundation for your design.’
Annie suggests that stripes are an excellent way to add some color to your space when you’re not sure of the color of your walls and are interested in trying the hue without committing to an entire hue walle. Use tonal shades to give a subtle, modern reference to trends, according to her.
“This color, Piranesi Pink, is an earthy, peach-leaning color with yellow pigments to provide a real softer feel. It’s named after the iconic Italian artist and architect Giovanni Piranesi and reflects his love for Classical antiquity and his admiration for masonry. It’s almost flesh-colored and reminiscent of setting mortar; Piranesi Pink is timeless and uplifting.’
Another option to add depth is to include strips of wall panels for bedrooms to give the room dimension and character. Boards can also add warmth to the design scheme.
