Here are some amazing bedroom décor ideas I’ve collected to inspire you to transform your space. Some of these easy upgrades are even DIY projects for the weekend. Have fun with textures, statement walls and fun décor!

Inspiration for Feature Walls In Your Bedroom

A wooden custom wall and potlights add warmth and a rustic look to this bedroom. If square footage is a challenge, stick to a color scheme. Simple furniture and netural linens let the feature wall shine.
