15 Bedroom Wall Decor Ideas for the Ultimate Retreat

The bedroom should be your sanctuary. Whether you’re updating your primary suite or outfitting the guest room, a sleeping space should have all the cozy fixings, including plush sheets, the best accent pillows, amazing organizational hacks, and bedroom wall decor that makes you feel at ease. That’s right—you can’t overlook the walls!

There’s a ton of opportunities to weave in fun and function on your bedroom wall. You could swipe on a calming paint color or put up removable wallpaper behind the bed as makeshift headboard. (Though if you’re in the market for a new upholstered headboard, there are amazing options out there.) Or, you could hang floating shelves and deck them out with photos or other tchotchkes. Maybe you’re interested in hanging a gallery wall or finding a set of prints that acts as the perfect finishing touch to your decor. The good news is you can rest easy when it comes to searching for that just-right piece, as some of the best bedroom wall decor ideas are waiting for you below. Sleep tight!

1. RootednGroundedHome Vintage Wildflower Field Wall Art


For peaceful wall art, look for paintings in calming and restorative hues like blues and greens. This beautiful vintage print arrives in a wood frame that would complement any natural or earthy-styled bedroom. 

2. Scott Living Peel & Stick Floral Wallpaper


While pattern is more predictable on artwork, why not try it against the entire wall? There are so many inspiring peel and stick wallpaper options to consider for a bedroom retreat, from bold to serene.

3. Giftgarden Store White Floating Shelves


Not an art person? Floating shelves are a great way to add functional storage space above the bed or bedside table. Use them to display things that make you happy, like picture frames, books, or a small plant.

4. Synplus Botanical Line Wall Art


Focusing on a neutral color palette is an effective way to create a clean and serene space, which is likely what traditional home design enthusiasts will lean toward. Neutral wall art can also bring out the depth and textures within an existing calm bedroom.

5. LiviLouDesigns Classic Blue Chinoiserie Wall Art


Blue can also serve as a neutral too, especially when used with florals and other ethereal motifs. A classic artwork set like this one is a beautiful way to add color to the bedroom while still maintaining a peaceful feel.

6. Paran Bloom 01 Wall Art by Jinseikou


Nature-inspired art is an instant mood booster. While this piece seems fairly colorless, it actually can work with several design schemes thanks to its subtle doses of blue, green, and brown.

7. Ebern Designs Sashalee Picture Ledge Wall Shelf


While a collection of small floating shelves looks nice, a single large shelf is clean and sophisticated. Layer in prints, photos, and other decor items and it’ll feel like a thoughtful gallery wall (without all the work!).

8. Gracie Oaks Eugine Circle Metal Accent Shelf


Not sold on floating shelves or a single shelf? Consider accent shelves with a contemporary design like these, which feel modern yet versatile. They’re also deep enough to hold frames, small plants, and decor.

9. NeuType Store Arched Full Length Mirror


When placed against a wall, a floor length mirror can make a small bedroom feel larger. Arched mirrors like this one can also create the illusion of a mirror or doorway, which adds to the effect.

10. HBCY Creations Store Gold Circle Wall Mirror


If you don’t want to commit to a floor length mirror, no worries. This top-rated round mirror has a smaller frame that would look beautiful hung above a bookshelf or dresser.

When hanging sconces or shelves, don’t be afraid to place them at different heights. It’s a great way to add ambience and interest without taking up a ton of real estate.

15. For Color’s Sake #11 Framed Art by Christine Olmstead


Mixed media is another stunning way to add texture to the bedroom. This contemporary piece arrives float mounted on a velvet backing in an oak shadow box frame for extra depth. When hanging artwork, a good rule of thumb is to start directly above furniture, so above the headboard, dresser, or bedside table, and build from there to achieve symmetry.
