Bedrooms are as personal as a room can get. And just because your bedroom is your own space doesn’t mean you don’t have to invest much in how it looks. As a matter of fact, it is your personal canvas on which you can portray the elements that resonate with your aesthetic. Instead of showing off the decor to your guests, you’ll essentially be enjoying them for yourself.

And let’s be honest, sleeping in a plain white room tends to get depressing after a while. Adding a couple of personalized elements of decor to your bedroom walls can make the space significantly more homey and easier for the eyes. You don't even need to dig deep into your wallet. You can have DIY wall decor above your bed by repurposing items that you can find around the house.

As far as creativity goes, the ideas for adorning your bedroom walls are practically unlimited. Several ideas, however, are enjoying the spotlight in the trends. With a few basic tools and materials, you can craft your very own trendy wall decor for your sleeping space.

One element of design that is all the rage these days is the wicker basket. This decorative and functional item adds a charming texture to an interior. Moreover, it can be an ideal storage unit for a variety of purposes. You can use wicker trunks to store your blankets and bathrobes, whereas wicker pots can make for ideal plant containers. However, you could also make use of the aesthetic value of wicker items by creating a unique wall feature. Grab a dozen wicker trays of different shades and sizes, drive a handful of nails into the wall, and simply hang the trays up in an enchanting display.

If you have a houseplant or two in your bedroom, you could pair it with vibrant wall art portraying foliage. This can be a perfect opportunity for you to exhibit your artistic talents. Grab a brush, a set of watercolors, or gouache, and illustrate your masterpiece. Make sure to allow the paint to dry before framing it. Watercolors usually dry in a matter of minutes whereas gouache takes slightly longer. The latter, however, can be reactivated with water. Consider going for acrylic gouache for a more intense palette.

Macrames are impressive pieces of artwork that have been trending for a while. These handicrafts are most common in Boho and Japandi interiors. It doesn’t even take much expertise to make one. With a little bit of practice, you can craft your very own macrame that you could use as a centerpiece bedroom wall decor. If you prefer one that’s ready-made, consider buying a Macrame from a local artisan shop — you could even be supporting a small business by doing so.

A clock — even if not functional — can serve as a charming decorative item, especially if it has Roman numerals. If you don't have one, a pretend clock can serve its aesthetic purpose perfectly. Consider going for a timeless (pun intended) wall piece by drawing a vintage clock on a ceramic tray. You could even take the hands from a broken clock and glue them onto your ornamental one for a more realistic look. Unless you prefer illustrating the numerals yourself, a calligrapher can do the job more precisely.

Contemporary Photo Gallery

Turn your bedroom wall into a modern photography exhibition by hanging up a series of grayscale images. Simply print out a few abstract photos of random images, frame them, and arrange the frames on the wall. If you have a knack for photography, you can take the pictures yourself and create your personal gallery right above the headboard of your bed. Consider highlighting your photo exhibition by directing a tracking lamp towards it.

Fancy Hat Display

If you have a bunch of wicker hats that you’re not sure what to do with, consider hanging them on the wall above your bed for a unique feature. Even if you still plan on wearing them, the display itself can make for a clever storage solution for your hats. Moreover, it adds dimension to your bedroom wall. This decorative and possibly functional feature is fairly easy to set up.

Start by roughly measuring the distance between the spots where each hat will go. Make sure to account for their respective sizes. Then, simply drive a nail in each of the marked spots and hang up your headpieces.

Floral Dry Wreath

You don’t need to wait for a specific season to hang up a wreath. These stylish elements of design are quite popular throughout the year — and that has been the case for a while. With a few slight tweaks, you can adapt your wreath so that it complements any season.

Consider making your own wreath by attaching a few dried flowers and foliage around a hoop. You could even switch out or add decorative elements every three to four months to match the season. During winter, for instance, you could incorporate a couple of pinecones. Come autumn, preserved fall leaves will make a great addition to the wreath. An assortment of brightly colored flowers works perfectly for both spring and summer.

Macrame Plant Hangers

Is it a macrame? Or is it a set of plant hangers? Let’s just go with both. Consider going for a statement piece by crafting plant hangers in a macrame design. While the materials involved are relatively simple and inexpensive, the project may take a couple of hours or so. The end result, however, is worth the effort. You will need cotton rope, hook screws, and a branch thick enough to carry the weight of five or six small pots.

Unless you know your way around handcrafting a macrame plant hanger, you could buy a set from the home decor section at your local department store. The rest of the process is pretty straightforward. Simply screw the hooks into the underside of the branch with an equal distance between each hook and the next. Make sure to hang the plants in a way that the weights are dispersed equally on both sides. You can use a thin chain to suspend the branch from a couple of hooks driven into the wall.

Nursery Wall Mural

Wall decor doesn't always have to be an object. You can turn the wall itself into a decorative feature by going for a mural. Simply treat the surface as a blank canvas and unleash your creativity. If you have a nursery room, for instance, an adorable wall mural idea can be a tree on one side with its leaves flying throughout the rest of the walls.

While you can create a vibrant feature by making use of a variety of hues, sticking to two or three will allow you to stay in tune with the color scheme of the room’s interior. Consider using acrylic paint for the mural as it dries faster and doesn’t have an unpleasant odor. It also offers more intense colors that don’t fade and peel.
