Wallpaper Accent Walls For a Serene Atmosphere in the Bedroom

When your bedroom feels too boring, it is time to give it a makeover. An attractive accent wall will bring visual interest while connecting the elements in the space. And there’s no better way to make a statement than using wallpaper. Available in various colors and patterns, you can find the right fit for your needs. Also, you don’t need to have prior experience in applying wallpaper. Peel and stick options are available for all those newbie DIYers who want to spruce up their homes without investing too much effort.

However, there is one thing to be careful about when making your selection. Some designs are too visually jarring and may end up disrupting the calm and serene atmosphere you want to achieve. Here, we share the top wallpaper choices for a bedroom accent wall!

Floral wallpaper

A floral wallpaper will create a serene and relaxed ambiance. This gorgeous design features a warm color scheme that borrows colors from the other elements in the space. Blue is another excellent choice for a focal point since the color can help calm your mind and reduce stress.

Herringbone pattern wallpaper

A herringbone pattern is a fine choice that still makes a wonderful statement. The striking design draws the eye upwards, creating the illusion of a high ceiling. If you have a small bedroom with a low ceiling, the herringbone pattern will make it seem roomier.

Striped wallpaper

Striped wallpaper is a versatile choice that fits a wide range of styles, depending on the color scheme you choose. The combination of taupe and cream is neutral but still manages to add style to your bedroom.

Traditional wallpaper design

When a bedroom fuses the beauty of elegant and traditional styles, simple patterns are the ones that will complement the space. A neutral color scheme and classic design are an ideal combo if you want to commit to this style without the risk of it looking dated.

Geometric accent wall

Geometric patterns will nicely fit into many styles, adding visual interest with their playful design. Even though this pattern gravitates mostly toward contemporary styles, this doesn’t mean that you should overlook it. We love how they managed to fit the gorgeous design into this elegant bedroom.

Textured wallpaper

When your space already has bold features that stand out, it is better to play safe with the wallpaper choice. If you still wish to make a statement, go for textured designs. This wallpaper features a gorgeous Damask design through the texture but with a neutral color.

Outstanding mural

If you want to go bold, opt for a mural. Nature scenes are an ideal choice for your bedroom since they create a calming and relaxing atmosphere.

Tropical print focal wall

Green is one of the designers’ top recommendations for bedrooms. The color creates a soothing sleeping space and brings a touch of nature to the room. This lovely print adds a splash of green, turning your bedroom into a tropical paradise.
