Creating an Eye Catching Focal Point Over your Master Bed
The master bedroom always has been associated with being the one place in your home that is uniquely yours. Whether you enjoy a dramatic, romantic, or modern aesthetic, how you address your master bed wall with becomes the focal point of your room. The master bed is always going to be the star of the bedroom and enhancing the wall with an eye catching focal point will make your bed feel great. Here are tips to draw all the attention to your master bed wall, as soon as you enter the room.
- Bold and glamorous: If you want a jaw dropping aesthetic in your bedroom, opt for dramatic canopies, ceiling applications, high headboards and tufted wall applications. You can be bold with bright colors, large patterns, or just large scaled attention grabbers. If you have height in your master bedroom, play it up with an eye catching focal point fabric that extends to the ceiling!
- Make the bed steal the show: Depending on your decorative style, your bed can take a back seat to the wall or vice versa. If you would prefer for your bed to steal the show, opt for subtle artwork, neutral toned collections and wall art that will blend subtly but still add texture and patterns. Artwork doesn’t have to be bold and dramatic, and leaving the area bare looks unfinished and bland. Opt for pieces that will draw colors from surrounding walls and will not compete with your bed and bedding.
- The master bed wall can say everything: In many homes, architectural features such as niches, built in shelving or alternate materials like wood or metal can draw attention instantly. The focal point of the room becomes a dramatic play of mixing finishes with function. Master bedrooms that have this aesthetic don’t usually need artwork, as the wall becomes all of the visual focal point needed. For a more subtle approach with brick or textured walls, consider painting the wall a subtle shade of white, gray or tan colors to soften the wall.
- Bring in the light: Have you ever noticed the impact of a great looking window can create an instant focal point over your master bed? Letting in natural light, or even an artificial light source can add instant appeal over your bed. If the morning sun bothers you, try using black out window treatments, but once you get up, let in the sunshine! Consider a modern chandelier, or pendant light over the bed for a unique lighting idea.
Create the ambiance you always wanted in your master bedroom with an eye-catching focal point over your bed.
