Simple, minimalist art ideas from Walmart that work perfectly in a bedroom to evoke a peaceful mood.
We did a thing. And it involves yummy, moody paint and art from good ol’ Walmart.
I feel like I need to break into a rendition of “These Are a Few of My Favorite Things” all Julie Andrews style on a mountaintop… or were there green damask bedroom curtains involved in that one?
Meet our master bedroom’s new look for not a whole lotta dollas.
I blame this quickie focal wall refresh on the fact that after having baby Regan sleeping in our room for 6 months, this space was starting to feel kind of stale. You know what I mean?
Feeling refreshed in the room you wake up in every single morning is important! I promise you.
There’s something about it that sets the tone for the whole rest of your day. (Hence why the master bathroom got major love earlier this year because the “before” situation was just sad.)
But honestly, I never went into designing our master bedroom with an actual plan, which is so not like me (Type A problems). A couple of years ago, we just hauled in this local clearance furniture we found (I keep searching all over online for its exact source with no luck) and that was about it.
But I always felt like there was something missing behind our bed. I wanted simple, clean, moody and just slightly vintage-y.
So Robert and I finally did something we’ve been thinking about since we moved in: created a focal wall behind our bed with simple, subdued art that gave this space a peaceful vibe.
You can’t get much simpler than these four tree sketches, but that’s what I like about it. Less is more.
We painted the wall Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal for that moody factor and hung up these art frames from Walmart and Art.com so that they would pop perfectly against that deep gray.
Mama like! (And side note: I particularly love that palm tree one since it’s a nod to our beloved South Carolina palmetto.)
We think it might be even better eventually with some grid molding placed on the wall to frame out the art a bit further and create dimension behind our bed.

So curious minds want to know…
Do you have anything hanging above your bed art-wise? Spill in the comments (because just maybe we could use even more advice for the guest bedroom that’s still in the planning phase… yay!)
