Have you noticed the trend of one large, statement making piece of art in the bedroom? Usually placed above the bed and sometimes even in place of the headboard itself. That’s my bedroom above, and I’m definitely considering removing the iron frame and lowering this piece on the wall a bit.
Don’t worry, gallery walls are still thriving. But one large piece of statement art commands all of your attention, which is an especially lovely look if you’re into minimalism. The bedroom should be a place that’s both relaxing and cozy – a retreat. For that reason I chose a piece of art with lots of moody blues, Stormy Drive by Smile Peace Love from Minted, that measures in at a whopping 54 x 40″. Can’t you imagine you’re in the car driving down the highway into this storm? For me it’s palpable.
Here are ten other bedrooms doing statement art right, as well some large scale art recommendations for your own boudoir.

With just a glance can you tell what MUT Design‘s ONZA modular tiles are inspired by? Chocolate bars. In texture, production process, and how they’re melted down with heat. They’re beautifully minimal, composed of just three ceramic pieces with invisible joints that allow infinite compositions when assembled. Choose from three neutral colors – grey, terra-cotta, and white.

I’ve had the same piece of art hanging at the top of my stairs for nearly two years and have been wanting to change things up. I actually have a folder on my desktop of my favorite photos I’ve taken, with the hope that one day I’ll print and frame them as art. So when Artifact Uprising reached out about their brand new floating frames I was ready, willing, and completely prepared.
After some hemming and hawing I narrowed it down to this shot of a group of surfboard blanks that I snapped in San Diego a few years back. It’s a really muted photo and I love that it blends in with the wall color so well. I uploaded my iPhone image to Artifact Uprising and a week or so later a very safely packaged framed print was on my doorstep. (A huge deal, I’ve had several pieces show up broken from other companies.)
After watching a video and using the handy template they sent along to hang the float frame we were all set. So sleek, right?! The frame grade acrylic is thick without weighing a ton like glass, and the brass-coated bolts give the entire piece such a polished look. Such an impact!

If you love geometry and color Ridge is for you. The range of wall mounted shelves are available in both portrait and landscape, while the coordinating trays are made from the knocked out pieces of metal. The shelves are powder coated in different colors on each side – sulfur yellow and pure white – while the trays are signal blue and dark blue or tomatoe red and wine red.

In my first house the guest room featured a wall of patterned navy blue wallpaper behind the bed’s headboard that I loved. But one short year after completing the room I picked up and moved halfway across the country, and the walls in the 1900 house are paperless. Having been in the space for nearly two years I’m beginning to see things in a different light, and considering an accent wall here and there. The second floor bath or perhaps a wall in the dining room, maybe something subtle or something bold that knocks your socks off the moment you walk into the room. Here are ten wallpapers I’ve got my eye on – thoughts?

Menswear label Askov Finlayson has teamed up with home goods company Hygge & West for a limited edition line of wallpaper. The collection consists of two designs, both inspired by Askov Finlayson founder, Eric Dayton’s, childhood memories of winter in Minnesota. The two designs are available in four colors, and every sheet is hand-screen-printed in the U.S.A. I love the organic look of both and would say this collaboration is quite the success!

These yes, no, and maybe Mirror Masks are so much fun for your walls! It may be a Monday, but I’m feeling the yes after a weekend filled with so much fun and so many friends. (You can purchase each one separately or as a set of three.)
