10 ways to decorate above your bed

Lately I’ve been spending time mindlessly scrolling through pinterest and Houzz (what else can you really do when breastfeeding at 3am?), gathering ideas for something to hang above the bed in our master bedroom. There are lots of great options out there, so I thought I’d put together a post showcasing a few of them.

10 ways to decorate above your bed

1. Art – This one is pretty obvious, and there are so many different ways to display above your bed. You can do anything from a single big piece to an entire gallery wall.

  1. These ideas are gorgeous! Our bed is in front of a window; it’s the only place we can put it! I’ve always liked this unexpected no-paint diamond wall from The Nester: http://www.thenester.com/2012/08/no-paint-diamond-wall.html Such a cool idea!

  2. That’s an awesome jellyfish, you should totally buy it. I also love that buffalo in your “art” section, he looks really determined or something :) I have a diy sunburst mirror over my bed, but I also have two small pieces of diy art over the nightstands, so I covered two of your options in one go ;) http://www.makedoanddiy.com/2015/03/diy-starburst-miirror-out-of-paper.html
    I do really love that plate wall as well though, like you say, so inexpensive but such a huge impact, especially if you painted some like they did.

  3. Love the jellyfish! I also think black & white or sepia super-close-up pics of your boys, framed in matching square frames, would be great up there :)

  4. Hi Ashley,
    I have also been trying to figure out what to put above my bed and woke up on a mission to finally figure it out. While drinking my coffee, searching Pinterest I came across your wonderful site and this great post! Thanks to you (and your sweet baby :)) I now have the perfect idea of just how to decorate over my bed! Thanks for your research. Love your site!

    The jellyfish is great. I love how it looks, how it’s textured, and how it’s circular yet not symmetrical in the picture. I can’t wait to see what you do with it!

  6. I LOVE that jellyfish so stinkin’ much!!!! Also, Kelly would be very proud that the plate wall made it. We have an art canvas and I love what is on it, but we might move the bed in front of the windows….so who knows. I may steal your jellyfish if my husband lets me ocean-ize another room, lol.

  7. Thanks for sharing some great ideas … I like the idea of a feature wall! Vising from The Inspiration Gallery :)

  9. I like the idea of incorporating frames whether it is big or small. It gives a different dimension to the space above the bed.
