Striving for better living conditions and caring for your home is a noble occupation. People are transformed and even start to think differently when they get into a beautiful, warm, harmoniously decorated room. We wrote a lot about bedrooms, choosing a style and color for them, or about spectacular interior decoration, but as you know, this topic cannot be exhausted.
Today we will talk about how to create a stylish, spectacular or just an unusual accent of the entire interior by decorating one wall in a bedroom.
Options for accent wall decoration
Typically the role «first violin» in the interior of the bedroom, a wall is assigned to which the bed is pressed by the headboard. However, you can choose any of the walls for decoration, for example, opposite from the bed, side, wall with a window or doorway. But about the simplest and most effective ways to decorate the surface, focus on it – we will tell you point by point.
Again, we are talking about the wall behind the headboard of the sleeping bed, because this area forms a single whole with the bed, side tables or tables on the sides, lamps and the headboard itself. It is perfectly logical to make this particular wall accent, and the easiest way is to use bright patterned wallpaper. It will take a little time to paste over one wall, but the positive effect will be obvious.
It is recommended to choose wallpaper with a natural background color and colorful plant patterns (flowers can be graphic or consist of geometric shapes), – a universal option for a large number of interior styles.
Background for painting and decoration
The selected wall can be painted in a pure contrasting color, but only it should be natural (herbal, cobalt, coral, honey), or neutral (white, gray, black), and the paint should be matte.
After the surface is prepared, it will not be difficult to choose the decor: paintings in frames or on stretchers, posters, panels, busts and bas-reliefs, as well as simply beautiful curly frames and mirrors.
Prevailing shades in decorative objects should work with the background color of the wall and the tones used in the interior. If you take a little more time to select them, the result will pleasantly surprise.
Focus on the headboard
The headboard of the bed itself can make an accent wall if it is very high, curly, decorated with a carriage coupler, capitons, enclosed in a carved frame, or upholstered with expensive fabric, leather or even fur.
Even the most beautiful headboard, if it is not practical, loses much of its charm, therefore, it is worth thinking carefully before using too intricate shapes, embossed carvings or a material that cannot be washed or wiped often. Alternatively, you can use a mobile structure (decorative screen, panels) or a removable cover with attachments to the base of the headboard.
Graphic variations in tone
It happens that the interior of the bedroom is made soundly, the colors are chosen correctly and, in general, the situation looks harmonious and holistic, but something is missing. Perhaps the room is too homogeneous, and the atmosphere clearly feels the need to somehow revive and diversify it.
We suggest using graphic drawings and motifs in the context of the color scheme of the bedroom. The wall can be distinguished with the help of unobtrusive squares, circles, geometric ornaments, as well as reproductions of prints or painting fragments using shades that match the basic tones of the room.
A variety of lighting fixtures will definitely help to pay attention to a particular wall, while the more unusual the shape is chosen for them, the more original the entire surface of the accent wall looks.
The main thing is to use more than two lamps near one of the walls, for example, together with wall sconces at the top of the wall, put a couple of table lamps or floor lamps below eye level. You can use a directional light and turn the lampshades in the desired direction if necessary – this will diffuse the light streams more evenly, and create a light, cozy atmosphere.
This way of accentuating a wall is more costly and time-consuming as it takes time, investment, and creativity. We are talking about decorating the surface using such facing materials as wooden boards (parquet boards, beams, modular panels), ceramic tiles, decorative bricks, upholstery with natural fabric.
The choice of natural materials is not accidental, because in the interior of the bedroom on the wall they look original and soundly, and the soft natural palette of shades of gray, caramel, woody, sandy, brown soothes and gives a feeling of security and closeness to nature.
