Lately I’ve been spending time mindlessly scrolling through Pinterest and Houzz (what else can you really do when breastfeeding at 3 a.m.?), gathering ideas for something to hang above the bed in our master bedroom. There are lots of great options out there, so I thought I’d put together a post showcasing a few of them.
This one is pretty obvious, and there are so many different ways to display it above your bed. You can do anything from a single big piece to an entire gallery wall.

Another super common solution with a ton of different options.

I like the plate idea not only because you can personalize the look so much, but because you could do it so cheaply.
Hang a blanket, rug, or fabric behind the headboard.
I like this idea for when nightstand storage isn’t really an option….though you may not want to do this if you live in earthquake territory.

6. Feature wall
This is a fun solution, make the wall behind the bed really interesting and forget about decor.

Not every space needs to be decorated!

8. Decorate above the nightstands and leave it empty over the bed.

9. Put you bed in front of a window
Sometimes you just don’t have the option, the only place to put the bed is right in front of a window. These pictures show that it doesn’t have to awkward… in fact, it’s quite the opposite.
10. Something unexpected
There are no rules, throw whatever the heck you want up there.

So what am I going to pick? Not sure, to be honest. I like mirrors (either a big round one above the bed or some sort above each nightstand), but I also can’t get this jellyfish out of my head….
I found it on Great Big Canvas months ago and was thinking about getting it for above the couch, but the colors are way more perfect for the bedroom. I may get it and see how it looks, if it doesn’t work above the bed it will work pretty much anywhere else in the house. I just love that dang jellyfish.
