Over the Bed Art


I wanted our Master bedroom to be very simple and calming, so I purposely kept things in this space to a minimum but it was lacking character.  I knew I wanted to add some sort of textured art, but hadn’t found anything just right.  Then I spotted a wood carving on clearance at Pier 1 while on our trip down south and knew I wanted it for this space.  Unfortunately, they only had one.  Luckily, the store across town still had a few, albeit not on clearance and they were able to do a phone purchase so I could pick it up later that day.

I originally planned to hang them over the night stands, but when I tested that idea the space above the bed felt too empty.  Although they are fairly large, they weren’t big enough to take up the whole width of the bed, so I opted to center them with some extra space in between.  I decided to hang them half way between the top of the head board and the ceiling since it is such a large space.  Once they were hung I almost wished I’d bought a third, but I think that might have felt a bit too fussy.


I also hung this watercolor print by an Alaskan artist on the small wall by the bathroom door across from the bed.  We purchased it during a trip and got a super sweet deal, frame and all!  It’s a favorite of mine and the hubs, so it’s fitting that we wake up to it every day.  Plus the colors work well in this space.


I’m not ruling out the possibility that I’ll add other art in this space, but for now I’m enjoying the simple yet unique look.  Now if only I could find the perfect rug and get the bench done for the foot of the bed! 😉

  1. This is very zen looking…I love it…..I wouldn’t want a zen house. But, a zen bedroom? Yes!
