Your bedroom is important for more than just sleeping and hanging out in your free time. If your bedroom walls are blank and boring, you aren’t really making the space your own, are you? Decorating your walls is an exciting part of having a bedroom to call your own. But how should you display your favorite artwork so that it gets the attention it deserves? These handy ideas from PBteen will help you plan, design and create your own personal art gallery without too much extra effort.
To create a statement-making gallery, you can combine different paintings, pictures, mirrors and other decor like plants, pinboards, calendars or wall sculptures. When it comes to actually creating your display, it’s a good idea to have a plan so that you hang up your decorations in a way that makes sense for your space. Coming up with a cohesive theme to stick to is a great idea for a look that’s pulled together, aesthetically pleasing and relaxing.
This theme can be something super simple. For example, you can choose artwork that all uses the color blue, or group all of your favorite black-and-white photos on the same wall. Your gallery wall theme can also be something more specific and detailed. For example, if you love going to the beach, you can create a gallery wall that features different types of ocean imagery. Focusing on a specific theme, even if it’s something basic like a shape or color, will unify your pieces, even if they feature different artists, shapes and sizes.
You can also focus on grouping together collages of art made by a specific person, whether it’s a famous painter, an artistic friend or even your own photos, paintings or drawings. The pictures you put up may be different, but they may have a unifying artistic style that will make sense when displayed together. If you’ve ever been to an art museum to look at paintings by a famous painter like Monet or Van Gogh, you’ve probably noticed that even though the subjects of the paintings are different, they all have a similar look and feel.
However, you don’t have to go with this eclectic collage approach. You can also go big by using a single large work of art to cover an entire wall. This is a great idea if you prefer a more organized decor scheme or if you don’t have many pieces to display on your wall. Murals and tapestries are a simple and easy decorating solution that let you have a huge, impressive image to look at. PBteen has a wide variety of different mural and tapestry options, from bohemian abstract prints to high-quality photographic prints of athletes, maps, beautiful landscapes, inspirational quotes and adorable animals. No matter what your tastes are, you can find a large mural, decal or tapestry to make up your one-piece gallery wall.
Our monograms and wall letters are another option for adding a personal touch to your room’s decor without crowding the wall with too much stuff. You can pick out your initials or another combination of letters that’s meaningful for you, like the abbreviation of your favorite city or the letters of your favorite college. We also have wall-hanging letters that spell out inspirational slogans to help you keep a positive attitude each and every day.
