A custom decor can make any bedroom unique and comfortable. The easiest way to transform your interior is to use paintings. Let’s figure out which paintings, posters and other décor elements are the best for the bedroom, how to choose them and how to place them in the interior the right way.
Which paintings are good for bedrooms?
Let’s just say that when we talk about bedroom paintings, we don’t mean great masterpieces. Those paintings are more of a décor. They bring harmony, uniqueness, and style to the room. Therefore, you should look over the collection of bedroom paintings at our gallery. For the bedroom, light and air abstractions are more than appropriate. Even the simplest picture will look gorgeous when framed properly. So, choosing the right frames and passe-partouts is of a great importance. When choosing a bedroom painting, rather opt for a thin wooden frame than a heavy and carved baguette.
A small gallery of different colors and sizes will look seamlessly. Only the common colors should join this gallery. They can be bright and matching to the interior, or in pastel and natural shades.
As for the technique of paintings, oil is less appropriate for the bedroom. Heavy oil painting, especially when it’s realistic and detailed, can bring a heavy energy to the room, instead of peace and tranquility. If you do prefer oil paintings, then give your preference to light works done by mastiff, abstract paintings or simple sea scenes. Even in the case of a marina (seascape), a watercolor is more suitable for the bedroom than the oil. Actually, the landscape in the bedroom is a separate topic to talk about. In short, choose a calm nature, with light and positive energy. When chosen improperly, bedroom paintings can disturb the peace and privacy. So, take the choice of the bedroom painting motif seriously. A landscape with pastoral scenes, forest, fields, trees or still life with flowers and abstract plants are guaranteed to create a quiet atmosphere.
A good solution for a modern bedroom interior is the abstract paintings. Unfortunately, finding the right one may turn out to be an uphill task. Online stores and art shops are filled with realistic and heavy oil landscapes or posters with flowers that are good as desktop wallpaper only. We advise you to opt for paintings at our gallery. We have a great selection of abstract paintings in various color ranges. You will easily find the right one for your interior. What’s more, we can help you visualize it! It’s the most fast and suitable way to decorate your bedroom according to your taste and preferences. Thus, you can create your own gallery without leaving your home.
Paintings with flora and fauna are perhaps the best solution for the bedroom of any style. If you love animals, it’s an excellent option for you! Elephants, birds, and butterflies — such paintings have become very popular lately. Floral paintings are also in trend. For example, they are often used in the Scandinavian or ethnic styles.
Bedroom paintings above the bed
The most popular place for hanging paintings in the bedroom is above the head of the bed. A large painting above the headboard always looks great. Have no doubts, it will become the main accent of the interior. A beautiful black & white abstract canvas can attract much attention. If you opt for such painting, don’t hesitate to choose a bright bedcover, pillows and carpet. Let’s see, how you can hang paintings in your bedroom:
- One above the other. Large and small pictures of the same style can be placed not only in a row, but also on top of each other. This option is suitable for small images in the same frames.
- On the shelf. If you do not want the traditional and banal placement of paintings on the walls, try to place them along the wall on the shelf. This allows you to change the composition as often as you want and place the new objects instead of the old ones. With this layout, you can put one over the other. It will look fancy not only above the headboard of the bed, but along the entire wall.
- One, two, three. If you want to hang not one but several paintings, try placing «three in a row». This option is most suitable for three similar canvases of the same size. You can also choose a multi panel canvas. We have some of them at our gallery.
- On the corner of the bed. It is not necessarily to hang paintings in the center above the bed. If your bed stands in the corner rather than in the center, this is not an option at all. In this case, place the paintings above the bedside table on the edge.
Selecting a painting for the bedroom interior
First of all, the painting should match the style and color scheme of the bedroom. That is why you should start selecting a bedroom painting after you have decided on the design of the room and the rest of the decoration. The painting should unite all colors of the interior. However, sometimes people do the opposite. They base the color scheme of the interior on the colors of the picture. In this case, the painting should be the center of the interior, its main accent, and a valuable or beloved exhibit of the owners. When choosing a painting for your bedroom, always take the advice of the specialists into account, not only your own wishes. The wrong design can become annoying for many months. If you do realize that you have made a mistake in choosing your bedroom painting, feel free to place it in another room. Anyway, our specialists and a fair number of beautiful pictures at our gallery are always at your service!
