As I edit through stacks of art and photographs in preparation for hanging an art wall in my master bedroom, I decided to see what inspirational examples of art hung in bedrooms I could find on Houzz. With such amazing work being featured on this site I wasn't disappointed.
From eclectic to classic, deciding what art is best suited to hang in a bedroom is a very personal choice. When done well it can be an inspiring addition to the room where we close down the day.

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.

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.
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.
