A successful bedroom design conveys already when entering the room: Welcome to the land of dreams! Our bedroom is a protective zone, refuge, and retreat, a healthy sleep the basis for a good day. It is, therefore, all the more important to aim for a harmonious, comfortable space to relax in when designing and furnishing. If possible, clutter, work utensils, the closet, and piles of clothes and electronic devices – in other words, anything that could negatively impact your night’s rest – should be moved out to other rooms.

Because the bed is the linchpin of the bedroom design, its position wants to be well thought out simply because of its dimensions. The orientation of the bed greatly influences the quality of sleep. The wall behind the headboard conveys a sense of security, as does an unobstructed view of the door. But what about the wall opposite the sunbathing area? It is usually the first thing people look at in the morning and the last thing they look at in the evening.

Bedroom Wall Design: Do’s and Don’ts

Mirrors act as a constant energy reflector and can severely disturb sleep, so according to the teachings of Feng Shui, they should be banned from the bedroom. However, because most bedroom wardrobes are equipped with them, they have nothing to lose on the important wall opposite the bed. On the other hand, landscape motifs, earthy nuances, and restrained, relaxing motifs have a calming and soothing effect on sleep. Whether it’s a fancy wallpaper, a new coat of paint, or a picture gallery: we’ve collected the most beautiful ideas for you, with which you can harmoniously design your bedroom wall.

1. Exotic Motifs for the Bedroom Wall

Welcome to the Urban Jungle! Strikingly patterned wall surfaces are perfect for visually dividing a room or accentuating individual areas. The large-scale jungle motif provides an anchor for the eye and creates a view that both sweetens the early morning hours and decelerates before a good night’s rest. Since picture walls of this type strongly attract attention, you should limit yourself to a single wall. The room impression becomes especially harmonious when the wallpaper colors are picked up again in the decoration, as in the plaid.

2. The Bedroom Wall Was Trimmed to Old

Perfect for a personal retreat, artfully patinated walls exude the tranquility of days gone by and provide a deliberate contrast to fast-paced everyday life. Such rawly designed walls convey a refreshing moment of the random, imperfect, and at the same time, a certain nonchalance. The best thing is that you do not have to wait a hundred years or live in a Tuscan palace – in just a few hours, you can achieve the wall design in vintage style. The basis is several layers applied in succession. After painting, three more brown, black, and pink glazes are applied and smudged to create an irregular texture. Here, the craftsman you trust will be happy to advise you.

3. Reading Material for the Bedroom Wall

A dream for all fashionistas: the picture wall with the most beautiful fashion spreads from the most diverse magazines inspires the day’s outfit directly after waking up. Quick to make, simple, and so individual because the individual pages are applied directly to the wall with glue and can be added to repeatedly.

4. Wallpaper Times Different

With this idea for wall decor in the bedroom, you always have your loved ones in view! Whether ancestral gallery or the collage of the best snapshots, wallpaper “Familjen” is the perfect background to design the wall opposite the bed creatively. On the white surface, drawn black picture frames of various sizes and formats are distributed, which can be filled at will.

5. Still Life in Front of the Bedroom Wall

One wall, many ideas: While in the lower part, a white coffered base provides old building charm, above it shines the design wallpaper in a hand-painted, naive look. On the other hand, the casually leaning plant pictures in black and white remain on the floor, combined with an arrangement of real houseplants. In the evening, paper luminaires put the group in the right light.

Plant pictures are always a good idea, especially in the bedroom, because nothing provides peace more than the moment of the imperishable

6. Art on the Bedroom Wall

The white of the picture gallery stands out brilliantly against the gray-painted wall. An imaginary horizontal bottom edge, which aligns all the pictures flush, brings order to the differently-sized motifs and frames.

Hanging pictures is an art in itself. If you like variety, you can decorate them on the wall opposite the bed by hanging them on ropes, as in a gallery, or use the heating pipes for other purposes, as in this case. Because these are painted the same color as the wall, they are elegantly restrained and give the motifs room to unfold.

8. Strong Contrast for More Extravagance

A dramatic black background acts like a powerful passe-partout. Because black completely absorbs light, it gives the collected works maximum luminosity. A common denominator, such as related motifs in black and white, makes the arrangement even more cohesive. But beware: the room also loses a lot of light, so good lighting ideas for the bedroom are needed.

9. Wall Decoration in Japandi Style

While the exposed brick wall exudes industrial loft charm, oversized Asian-inspired wall fans follow the Japandi interior trend. If you don’t have decorative bricks to decorate your walls, improvise with wallpaper or pre-set wall panels.

10. Bedroom Wall and Furniture in Harmony

Painting your furniture in the same color as the bedroom wall creates a stimulating effect: the furniture recedes visually and becomes almost invisible. In this way, decorative objects are shown off to their best advantage, while the furniture does not take up any space visually.
