Decor: Master bedroom wall help

1/07/2011 08:10:00 AM Ashley 8 Comments

Well huh...

A few days ago I promised myself that I would actually get our bedroom put together properly and have been working ever since to get it done. Which, I mean is awesome, until I realized that are walls are awfully bare. Currently the only thing hanging on our wall is my earring frame and that's only because I hung it up last night.

We didn't have much of anything on the walls in our past house, but that really didn't bother me. Which is amazing because there was large expansive walls. But the room felt bright and happy, so I was lazy happy and didn't really hang anything on them.

But here...oh man...we have issues. Windows on the only two walls we can put both are blocked by our bed and dresser. Two sliding door closets on the other wall. Two doors on the last wall. So there is a lot of chopped up wall space.

It's hard to tell from this oh so amazing photo...but there is another window on the wall to the left. This would be the wall that our headboard is up against. The window that you can see has our dresser.

Now don't hate on our awesomely tiny master bath. The wall to the right, again is the wall with our bed on it. The tiny wall left of the bathroom door is where I have my jewelry armoire and my earring frame.

Trust me...I know these are awful pictures, but currently they are the best that I have. I can't...well not can't, but I won't paint the bedroom, so that's not an option.


This is our furniture and bedding (Ashley Citron from Bliss Living). It is gray, yellow and white. The yellow is a very bright yellow with a very very slight green tinge to it.

So this is where I beg for your help. I have no idea what to do. I'd like the ideas to be cheap or even DIY.

Lay your ideas on me, I'd love to hear them!

I'll even try to get better pictures of the room today too.


  1. What about vinyl wall art? You can choose the colors and sizes of various patterns to complement what's already in the room. It's really inexpensive and can brighten up the walls dramatically.
    Also, some well placed mirrors will help visually enlarge the room. Look for some funky antique frames maybe, or get an unfinished frame and paint it to match that bold yellow for a subtle pop of color.

  2. I'm coming to help. Monday. nuff said ;)

  3. Okay, here's some real opinion :) I think vinyl wall art would be cool too. One thing I find really helps make a room is curtains...maybe layering something gauzy with something that picks up the colors in your will make the room feel more comfortable immediately.

  4. I've been looking at vinyl wall art! I really like the idea, but now I need something that catches my eye. Hmmm...
    I like the idea of framed mirrors, I'd just have to play with placement because of the odd wall space. Or...maybe those shaped mirrors!? Really...I need to get a better picture of the room with our stuff in it.

  5. I've been looking for curtain ideas. It just sucks that they have to be hidden behind our furniture. :( Here are a few that I have found that could work...,&navCount=90&navAction=poppushpush&color=&pushId=A_FURN_WINDOW&popId=A_DECORATE&prepushId=&selectedProductSize=,&navCount=90&navAction=poppushpush&color=&pushId=A_FURN_WINDOW&popId=A_DECORATE&prepushId=&selectedProductSize=

  6. I like the second urban outfitters one and the first Ikea one...

  7. I have this duvet cover, and I love it so much. I'm still having issues with what pillows go with it that don't overpower. Same issues with the curtains!

    the great blog, I'm reading them for a while, thanks for the new posts!
