Art hung above a desk always seems to look just right. Here the gold toned frames echo other finishes in the room, with one image repeating the bright blue hue of the drapes. This is an excellent example of an art wall that fits in beautifully with the room design.
Is this collection of art hung above and beside a bed complete, or is it an ever evolving grouping that can continue to spread across the walls? I love the random feeling of the images and the inclusion of the very tall image on the right.
Whether or not this art wall is actually in a bedroom is unclear, but the quiet conveyed through the image would suit a bedroom very well. The muted color palette of the room and art enhance the soft mood, further reinforced by the choice to use white frames which fade into the wall.
Accents of blue are scattered throughout this room, in the bedding, the works of art and the fireplace screen. This eclectic design suggests the bedroom belongs to an interesting person with varied interests.
Here is another collection that could very well continue to grow. A mixture of black, brown and white frames feature photographs and sayings which are all in the same tone. The end result is an art wall that manages to be interesting while melding into the room design without taking it over.
Amazing Drama. Every inch of the dark navy blue walls surrounding a canopy bed are covered in art. The pleated navy and white drapery panels, which frame the bed, mirror the wall color and whites present in the artwork. A virtual cocoon of coziness is created. The effect is continued with the ivory drapes at the window and a navy settee set at the foot of the bed. Orange accents seen on the coverlet, pillow and lantern add just the right pop of bright color. Can you tell I love how wonderfully thought out this design is?!
I am noticing that many of the art walls that I find appealing are actually made up of a collection of framed art in addition to other items, such as letters and small sculptural pieces. Here is a perfect example with a playful spirit, enhanced by the bright colors seen in the art, the bird hovering to the left of the bed and the happy yellow bedframe.
This vignette is actually located in a living room, but I just had to include it here, so let's pretend it is in a bedroom. Placing the ledge above the remarkable piece of sculptural furniture not only creates a graphic composition but is a wonderful way to allow the homeowner to rearrange what is showcased, taking away and adding images on a whim.
To avoid the concern of an art wall in a bedroom countering a restful atmosphere, keep it simple. Select a simple frame styles in similar finishes and feature images that are similar in color or tone. Using black and white photographs which have special meaning would be a perfect choice.
Artwork arranged in a grid pattern creates a formal look and is a wonderful way to hang art in a traditional bedroom.
Here is another example of an art wall that is not hung in a bedroom, but again let's just assume it could be. The photographs all share a similar tone and hue, while the frames are the element that changes from image to image. A sculptural light fixture becomes a part of the grouping. This, along with the frames hung around a corner, create a dynamic look.
The clean and masculine lines of this design are appealing. The height of the room is remarkable and made more noticeable by the glass framework around the door and the glass enclosure at top of the wall, behind which I assume is a bathroom. The way in which art is displayed in this bedroom takes its lead from these features. The ledges take advantage of the height with images and objects arranged simply across the shelves.
