Wall Art for the Bedroom

I've been on the look out for something that I can put over the bed. Right now I (and I'm ashamed to tell you) have a tapestry that I've had since college there. It's time to get something more adult. But what?
I love this one from Crate & Barrel. It's not really of anything which I think is cool. But this one has a cool, peaceful vibe. This one is from Ikea.
This one is so beautiful. But I think it's too feminine. I do like it. It reminds me of a spa. Also from Ikea.
This one is kind of stark. But not really what I want for the bedroom but maybe the living room. Also from Ikea.
I love the price on the Ikea ones but I would still have to have them framed or something. So where do you go to look for wall art?


  1. Ooh! I love to decorate, but I gotta know more about what your bedroom looks like to help!

    First off - you don't have to put one large piece, you could do a cluster of small pictures, a few long ones, some small shelves, the possibilities are endless!

    If art is what you want, you can also try and for starters.

  2. He he he we have a poster of a yellow lab puppy and Jimi Hendrix over our bed.

    Ooh the tree image is really nice.

    Want a painting? I could always try making something to order. I'm getting better with trees.

  3. I love them all, but I especially like the 1st one from Crate & Barrel and the 2nd one from Ikea.

  4. I make my own. With the exception of a few records, a red metal star and a tiny black cuckoo clock, all the art on the walls is my own.

    That first one is pretty cool.

  5. I vote for the top one from C&B! Lovely and classy.

  6. I like them all! And I like the flower one, maybe Tai wouldn't think it was too "girly"??

    I have one of those wall shelfs from Pottery Barn over my bed with mis-matched frames on it. I really like it because it takes up visual space, and I can change the pics to what I want. Plus, the frames were pretty inexpensive, which was nice.

    If you're going for one big piece, go for one you really like, and spend the money. I know it sounds bad, but better to save up and get the one you really love - and get it framed - than to spend money on something that is just okay because you can afford it.

    I think having Introverted Wife paint something for you could be cool. Or, you could get a big canvas and try yourself to recreate the one from Crate and Barrell. That one would be pretty easy to do.


Shiny! I love comments.
