As with any focal point, the wall above your bed is a intimidating design challenge, and it is one that many of our customers have been asking about. We hear you!
Between deciding what you want to put there and imagining if it will work with the rest of your room, you’ve got your work cut out for you.
To help, we are using a little Modsy 3D to “try on” 6 of our favorite over the bed decorating ideas.
1. Wall Hangings
Get knotty and add some texture above your bed. We love how these woven wall hangings keep it neutral and lend our bedroom some eclectic vibes.
2. Print Trio
Add a little rhythm with a series of three hung above your bed. We love these quilt-inspired prints, which look great framed or hung with washi tape (a bonus if you live in an earthquake zone)!
3. Vignette Style
A spin off the standard art above the bed, we love the idea of hanging two pendant pieces above your nightstands. This option works well if you have a tall headboard or if you crave a little negative space.
4. Go Mobile
Not just for your nursery, we love the idea of adding a little kinetic energy to your bedroom. Mobiles bring a note of whimsy to any space and are a great option for keeping small spaces open and airy.
5. Juju Hats
These spectacular, eye-catching plumes are the feather headdresses traditionally worn by Bamileke chiefs of Cameroon and are symbols of prosperity.
While we loving showing our appreciation of another culture’s art, we think it’s worth considering the implications behind turning these ceremonial objects into decor or DIY projects.
Instead, get the scoop on this pendant pair of authentic Juju hats here.
6. Quilt to Last
Got a large space to fill? Hang an oversized quilt above your bed. These also work well as stand-in headboards if you’re bed doesn’t have one.
