There are numerous ways to get creative with a bed wall. A mural, a featured paint color and even wallpaper can be cost-effective if you choose economical options. Creating a gallery wall above your bed can also be a way to add a personalized touch. Another idea is to showcase a cool headboard.
Good quality bedding and a calming, neutral color palette are key to creating an inviting bedroom environment. We like to layer accessories as well with throw blankets, pillows and, of course, a delicious smelling candle.
For an unexpected headboard, use a decorative element that’s not typical for a bedroom. Consider painted wooden window shutters, a decorative wall divider that can lie flat and be attached to the wall, or an ornate iron panel painted a fun color. Just make sure to place oversized pillows in front of this kind of installation or hang it where your head can’t touch it.
When decorating a master bedroom, we tend to lean towards a calming color palette and sculptural light fixtures. We also like to personalize the space with bedding. In this Upper East Side master bedroom in New York City, we created a dusty lavender color scheme with an accent of hand-embroidered wallpaper. The bedside pendants are like the jewelry and the metal nicely contrasts with the delicate flowers. The bedside tables personalize the space—vintage nesting tables for her and a Frampton Co table with storage for him.
