With every new year comes the desire to start from scratch: to clear out our interiors, donate several bags of clothes to charity and to wipe the slate clean. But sometimes, that’s easier said than done; we can’t all afford to buy a new sofa, coffee table and bed frame every time we fancy switching up our furniture. That said, we can do little things like buy a new bedroom rug or bedroom chair and even purchase some new bedroom wall decorations.
Decorating your abode is essential to making it feel like it’s yours, and it feels especially important in the boudoir. No one wants to wake up to a boring bedroom. As we already know with removable wallpaper, it’s a good idea to make temporary changes if you’re renting or super indecisive so that you can swap and adjust as and when.
Interestingly enough, wall decorations are the easiest interior alterations you can make. Despite all the throw blankets, cushions and candles you seem to have collected, your bedroom may still feel unfinished or bare. Sound familiar? It’s likely due to a lack of wall decor, and luckily we’ve found some solutions. From mirrors and wall art to neon signs, bedroom lighting and more, these editor-approved bedroom wall decorations will help you liven up your space.
How can I decorate my bedroom walls?
Consider clever mirrors such as this Lena Scalloped Storage Mirror from Anthropologie or this Rattan Basket Mirror from H&M – not only will they give the illusion of a bigger bedroom, but they also provide you with a nifty storage solution.
You could stick to the traditional route by hanging prints and photo frames like this East End Prints design or this gallery from The White Company on your wall, or you could go for something quirkier like this faux Majesty Swan Head and Decorative Skull from Graham & Green.
If you ask us though, you can never go wrong with something simple like this shelf, which features hooks to display all your favourite handbags and coats from, or something fun like this porcelain wall plate from Fornasetti.
What can I put on my wall across my bed?
Adding something cosy like this macrame bunting or a bamboo fan is a great idea to fill the space above your headboard, plus it looks super cute and is different to your standard poster. Also, if you’re looking to save money on things like bedside table lamps, fairy lights like these copper string lights will provide you with an ample glow for reading books come bedtime and are perfect for hanging on the wall.
