HOW TO CHOOSE ART FOR YOUR BEDROOM DECOR
Often overlooked in the bedroom, bedroom art is an incredibly easy & affordable way to create mood and atmosphere - in any room of the home. Read our guide on how to choose art for your bedroom walls.
The beauty of wall art is that you can just move your art prints around your home, trying them in different locations, depending on your mood, the seasons or your wall decor or layout choices. This makes art a quick and simple way to transform your interior, adding new personality and character to tired spaces for an instant uplift.
Start by asking yourself the 3 questions below...

1. How do you want your bedroom to make you feel?
Firstly, determine what sort of mood are you trying to set for your bedroom interior; calming and relaxing or passionate and full of energy - this is probably not the best choice if you’re looking to curl up with a book at 9pm.
2. What's style is your bedroom, and what is it used for?
Plan your bedroom design harmoniously and choose art that will suit your style and your personality. Keep in mind what your sleeping space already looks and feels like; the colours, textures, linens, the light - whether this is natural sunlight or the lamps and lights, even candles that you have in your room. Not all rooms will suit loads of art and a gallery wall. How much time do you spend there, at which times of the day, and for what purpose? Is it purely somewhere to lay your head, or does it double as your office or living space? Wall art is a particularly good way to zone parts of the same room, for instance, if you live in a studio apartment - placing different types of art in different areas will help you to create areas within the space.
3. Which type of art is popular in bedrooms?
Most people crave a relaxing, tranquil space to which they can retreat at the end of a long day. Soft furnishings, subdued lighting and muted colours are popular choices of art for bedrooms and general bedroom decor.
