Whether you draw your inspiration from a specific favorite color or a distinctive textile, your bedroom walls are a great opportunity to establish the look of your space.
For a restful space, choose muted, calming paint colors. To reduce the pollutants in your bedroom, use a low-VOC (volatile organic compound) product.
Create large-scale, custom designs using paint and painter’s tape.
Wrap the room in pattern with wallpaper. There is an endless variety of options—both classic and modern—to choose from.
Grasscloth is a woven wallpaper that can be purchased in many colors and patterns. Its textured surface adds warmth to a room.
If you have more time than cash to contribute to a project, try painting one wall of the bedroom with a stencil for the look of patterned wallpaper at a fraction of the cost.
Another patterned alternative to wallpaper is fabric. If you use fabric as a wallcovering, you can also use the same textile to create matching linens and drapery.
The natural look of stained wood is warm and cozy on bedroom walls.
