6 Stylish Accent Walls for Behind Your Bed

The wall behind your bed is a great blank canvas to do something amazing. The fact that the eye is automatically drawn to the head of the bed when you enter any bedroom makes this wall perfect to be a feature wall that ‘WOWs!’


Bring some industrial flair to your bedroom with a brick wall. In addition to the style factor, the color of brick is great for bringing warmth and making the space look cozier.


Murals create a beautiful backdrop without busy patterns. It’s also an opportunity to get creative, as you can have a custom mural printed or painted that depicts a landscape, a family photo, or a beautiful floral scene. Be creative!


A rustic wood wall behind your bed adds a romantic texture, natural color, and warmth. Planks can be laid horizontally or vertically and can be stained/painted to any color to go best with your space.

Stenciled Paint

When you want the patterned look but don’t want to spend the money for rolls, try painting a pattern on the wall with stencils, or if you’re brave go freehand and create something totally unique!


Who wouldn’t love to wake up on a lazy Sunday morning, reach behind you, and pick up your favorite book without having to leave the warm sheets? If you’re an avid reader, a well decorated bookshelf behind your bed would you perfect for you!


Using paneling and a solid color introduces texture and interest to the wall without being busy or garish. It’s also versatile as you can go traditional with picture frames or modern with a board & batten. And of course it puts the paint color in the spotlight!

      As long as water can’t get behind either one...why not? I’m doing that in my bathroom soon.
