How To Decorate the Area Above Your Bed

If your bedroom is feeling bare and empty, the open space above your bed might need some space. We're sharing our favorite ways to fill this area and complete your bedroom. 

GALLERY WALL

A gallery wall is a no-brainer if you've got a huge wall to fill. They instantly create depth and visual interest without being overbearing. Fill it with your favorite artwork and knick knacks so it feels personal to you. Check out our webisode to learn how to create an eclectic gallery wall, because we know it isn't easy!

ARTWORK

Artwork is a good idea in almost any open space, above the bed is no exception. You can play around with size depending on how much open space is available. If you have little height, but a lot of width you can play with long horizontal artwork, and vice versa.

Hanging a pair of same-sized artwork has the same effect as a larger piece while creating additional visual dimension. We love to use coordinating pieces of artwork to make a statement.

DECORATIVE WALL DECOR

Create dimension and play with layers by using decorative objects like hanging banners, pendants, and horns. These are the easiest way to show off your character and personality in your space. Check out our post on Decorating with Pennants for more inspiration!

Mirrors

Mirrors have a way of bringing light into a space while opening it up and making it feel larger. It also anchors the space when centered above the bed, making everything feel balanced.
