If we had to pick one place where interior style really matters, it would be the bedroom. This is the room where we go to replenish and rest, and creating a welcoming environment where we feel comfortable is essential for this goal. Inside the bedroom, one of the most striking is the front wall, the one that supports the bed. Depending on the type of bed you won, this wall may serve as a headboard. Either way, this is the surface that gives character to the whole room. There are a number of ways to decorate this wall, ranging from classic paintings to warm bookshelves. Today we take a look at some original and new ideas for decorating the front wall of the bedroom.

A window

Although not a good choice for those who need total darkness to sleep, a window is perfect for those who like to wake up with the sun caressing their faces. Also, placing the bed below the window is very suitable for small bedrooms, since it allows the use of a wall that otherwise would only serve to accommodate the window. In the example, the window is located on an interior wall with translucent glass that lets in light but ensures privacy.

Wallpaper

One very fashionable option that creates a spectacular effect is wallpaper. Choose a striking wallpaper for coating the most important bedroom wall, and it will give the room a totally different air. Here we see a wallpaper that recreates the front pages of newspapers, above a modern and functional bed with storage space under the mattress, which creates a pleasant environment with a bohemian and intellectual touch.

Stylish storage

A functional and practical idea is to use the wall behind the bed to place shelves and small storage units. In this room, the walls are decorated with simple and stylish open boxes, which are also used as tables. This is a great way to add some interest to the wall without covering it entirely, so the charming painted brick can continue to give that trendy industrial character to the room.

Display cabinet

In the same vein, this bedroom wall is adorned with a bookcase cabinet that provides space to store books and other objects both decorative and functional.  This idea is perfect for rooms with little storage space. In addition, the shelves can be used in place of a bedside table, saving even more room.

Books, books, books

Books add great decoration. They are also the best and most healthy medicine for insomnia, so it is nice to have them handy when you get into bed. That's the idea behind this design. Behind the bed are located a cabinet are two bedside table cubbies and a shelf where books are the protagonists. With their colourful spines, the books add a warm and cheerful touch to the room. Since the wall is high and the bed is low, there is also space for placing a poster, a decorative feature that provides a casual and personal touch to the bedroom.

The classic

A classic that never fails: decorate the bedroom wall with bedside tables and eye-catching art. Here the idea goes a little further, and instead of hanging a large, striking picture that covers the entire wall, the homeowners have opted for multiple framed photographs of different sizes. A fun, different and original touch with a traditional look that never gets old.
