Why Wall Art Matters Most In Interior Design

Too often in interior design, we see wall art treated as an afterthought. It’s what gets dealt with last, long after the final coat of paint has dried on the walls and all of the furniture has been artfully arranged, if it gets dealt with at all.

But, we’re here to argue that by relegating wall art to the side lines, you’re missing out on an amazing design opportunity. When chosen thoughtfully, the right wall art can provide for the entire room. Dare we say it, but we think wall art matters most in interior design.

However, if you’re a little nervous to give wall art such a prominent role in your design plans, don’t worry. Use this post as a guide on how to accurately choose pieces that will mesh with your existing space and you will have a harmonious interior.

14 Bedroom Wall Decoration Ideas

The bedroom is our personal temple or a space that we share with the person that we love. We also spend a good part of our daily life in this room so we need to take time and put care into its design so that it is always warm and comfortable as well as aesthetically appealing.

You can achieve this by choosing new furniture and accessories for the room, including a new bed, table and cabinets. Or you can find new ways of decorating the walls, refreshing the look and feel of this space.

This homify ideabook contains 14 modern and convenient ideas for decorating the walls in your bedroom, inspiring you to breathe new life into your personal little space.

Let’s take a look!

1. Opt for photographs

CASA CALDA

The presence of photographs is quite common in areas like the living room, but what would happen if we were to introduce them into the bedroom and use them to decorate the walls in this space?

The intimacy of the environment lends itself to the introduction of personal memories that are very dear, enriching the room and adding an emotional note. This can be further enhanced by the use of prints in black and white, which add a vintage flavour.

2. Colour combinations

ESTUDIO SESPEDE ARQUITECTOS

This environment is often dominated by white and soft colours, which enhance the natural light. But why not use your walls to combine colours, introducing some warmer and stronger colours?

While you don’t want all of the walls to feature dark tones, we can see in this design how a combination of colours can make for a very appealing bedroom environment.

4. Exposed brick

GP-ARCH

This is not an unusual design in modern times. In fact a raw brick wall can be a very bold, refreshing and original option for an industrial chic look in the bedroom space.

In this design, we can see how the orange bricks complement the smoother plastered walls, bringing texture and tone to the room. This is a very modern and appealing space.

The important thing to remember is that you want simple furniture and decor with this type of wall so that you don’t overwhelm the environment.

5. Add mirrors

CONCEPT INTERIOR DESIGN & DECORATION LTD

One idea to effectively make a small bedroom appear larger, apart from painting the walls a light colour, is to add mirrors to the wall space.

As we can see in this design, a larger mirror not only creates a beautiful setting but it gives the perception that there is much more space.

6. Paintings

SÓNIA CRUZ – ARQUITECTURA

Choose a theme for your bedroom and decorate the walls accordingly, whether you want to go for music, animals or books as the focal point. Choose a gorgeous and bold painting that appeals to this design and you’ll have the most sophisticated bedroom on the block!

Pastel colours are well suited for any environment, but for the bedroom, they truly introduce feelings of tranquility and rest. These types of colours and tones bring you peace of mind and allow you to feel at one with the environment around you.

9. Works of art

TIAGO PATRICIO RODRIGUES, ARQUITECTURA E INTERIORES

If you are a lover of artwork, sculptures or painting, don’t just use them for the more common areas of your home like the dining room and living room. Even in the privacy of the bedroom, a piece of artwork can add a precious touch, enriching this space and ensuring that it is intimate and personal.

10. Rustic style

LARA PUJOL | INTERIORISMO & PROYECTOS DE DISEÑO

Either as an artificial coating or as natural, exposed stone, this is a great option for those who love a more rustic look and feel as well as authentic elements that give them direct contact with nature.

The presence of an exposed stone wall will be even more effective it is linked to other rustic elements such as wooden ceiling beams, as we can see in this image.

11. Concrete walls

MX TALLER DE ARQUITECTURA & DISEÑO

Concrete walls are often found in a minimalist or industrial environment, bringing an elegant and simple design into the space all at the same time.

Even in the context of a bedroom, as we can see in this image, the concrete walls work beautifully. They don’t simply have to be used for a bathroom or kitchen.

The presence of smooth concrete can harmonise an environment, introducing personality to the space.

12. Lighting

LOFT DESIGN SYSTEM DEUTSCHLAND

Lighting can play a vital role in illuminating the detail and characteristics of the walls.

In this case, for example, we can see how the wall above the bed is enhanced by the beautiful soft lighting from the bedside lamps. You can also opt for candles or lanterns.

13. Enhance the room with bright walls

GOODVINILOS

You can also use stencils or wall art to introduce contrasting colours to the walls, as we can see in this design.

The liveliness of the bright colours is dramatised by the beautiful white wall art.

How To Make Huge Snowflake Decorations For The Holidays

We spent Thanksgiving with family in Idaho, and my super awesome sister-in-law showed me how to make these ginormous paper snowflakes in just a few easy steps. I could barely contain my excitement when I learned how to make these, and I couldn’t wait to get back home and share this with all of you! I have a small apartment so I only made 3 snowflakes, but if you had a house these snowflakes would make for amazing porch decorations! Talk about Holiday curb envy!

So the first thing I did after getting back was hit my local Michael’s for supplies (they had a sale, so I was in heaven, and each paper was only 25 cents)! You will need six 12 x 12 sheets of paper to make one snowflake so stock up. I would also suggest looking for paper that is double sided or has a nice contrasting color. I found that a lot of scrapbook paper is not dual-sided, and that will just not do for this craft (unless you like to mix patterns and solids, in which case go for it). Personally, I need a little Holiday glitz in my life, so I went with sparkly paper. The back-sides of the paper are the same color but in matte, so it all looks on point!

What you will need:
6 – 12 x 12 sheets of paper for 1 snowflake
1 – stapler
1 – bone paper folder (optional)
Scissors

Make these Holiday decorations in a few easy steps!

First, fold the paper over into a triangle (pretty side facing out)

Next, fold the triangle over again into a smaller triangle. I used a bone folder to get a nice even crease, but it’s not mandatory

Below are the measurements, however, after I got a good idea of these measurements I ended up eyeballing where to cut, and it turned out just fine

You will need to make 4 diagonal cuts, 1 inch apart starting from the bottom on the right-hand side. The only thing that is absolutely IMPERATIVE is that you must cut upward from the side that is folded over. Imagine, if this were a book, then you would be making your cuts on the side of the binding not the pages. Also, make sure to cut up to 1/2 inch from the edge on the left.

Open up your triangle, and staple together the two sides in the center. Now, TURN OVER the entire piece of paper and staple the next two sides on that side. Continue alternating sides until you are done

Here is the final piece! You could just string up one piece of the snowflake and be totally done (look how lovely it looks on it’s own). But we’re on a mission here people! So prepare five more pieces!

Once you have 6 pieces complete you will need to connect and staple them all together

I would suggest connecting the sides that have 3 strips with the sides that have 2 strips. I also found that it’s best to connect three pieces together, then connect those to another set of three. But do whatever works for you – don’t stress over it, it’s just a paper snowflake 🙂

So that the snowflake keeps it’s shape, you will also need to staple the center all together

String them up or hang them on nails, as I did

Please excuse the bare nakedness of my living room. I just cleared out all the fall foliage and pumpkins, and I’m barely getting started with Christmas decorating!
