A little something, something

I’ve been feeling ho-hum about my bedroom since I moved and I know I’m not the only one stuck in a rut when it comes to deciding what to put above the bed. Often when I see bedrooms in design magazines there is nothing on the wall above the headboard. I get that it isn’t necessary but sometimes you need a little something, something.

I’ve gone from a four foot high to a two and a half foot high headboard and the wall above is crying out for some kind of pretty filler. I decided to do some online searching for different ideas and here are some beautiful pictures.

I love a good starburst mirror and think they are gorgeous above the bed. It is one of the ideas I am considering for above my own headboard (my headboard is a similar shape to the one below, no soaring ceilings though).

Or why not a cluster of them!

Nothing wrong with the classics. Pictures above the bed:

eee

Or why not a little extra storage? Most of us need it after all.

A graphic wallpaper is another idea I’m considering for behind my bed.

Why not something a little zany? This is normally seen above a crib but I think it would be whimsical in a master bedroom (Allison, this is the crazy idea for above your bed, your wall colour has such joie de viver I thought, why not?)

I also love the idea of layering a curtain behind a headboard. So romantic.

Or as a replacement for a headboard. High impact, low cost. The one below is actually a shower curtain.

Stenciling can be oh so ugly but it doesn’t have to be. Here’s a modern take on wall stenciling above the bed.

Don’t want to pick up a paint brush? There are always stick ons.

Pennant flags don’t have to be babyish (though the colour scheme below doesn’t exactly cry out, “master bedroom!”). I think that it could be pulled off in a more sophisticated manner.

My take away thoughts on the matter? I’m still leaning towards wallpaper. Maybe wallpaper and a starburst mirror? I suppose it depends on how busy a pattern I choose.

Have anything creative above your bed? Feel free to post a picture in the comments section.

  1. Thanks for the inspiration Heather. Lots to ponder….I like the mirror cluster idea.

    Make sure that anything above the head of the bed is attached securely! You don’t want heavy picture frames falling on your heads. Earthquakes come with no warning : ( I like the decal idea or even a vertical panel of fabric or wallpaper. The shower curtain is interesting…
