New Artwork For the Bedroom

The bedroom got a few upgrades recently that I’m pretty excited about. We finally got around to buying a new mattress in December, and although it hasn’t changed the appearance of the room much, it’s made a huge difference as far as our sleep is concerned! The space above the bed was another area that needed to be addressed. Until now, I’ve had placeholders in that spot that were just ok.

So when Photowall reached out to collaborate, I knew exactly where I wanted a new piece of artwork.dsc_0364-2Photowall has a wide selection of wallpapers and canvas prints, and I must admit, I was SO tempted to get wallpaper! The collection by South African design studio Lemon is especially good, and I couldn’t stop myself from imagining how one of their gorgeous murals would look on my wall (SO GOOD is how it would look FYI). I honestly might have convinced Andrew to throw renter-caution to the wind if I hadn’t have found this beauty by Cecilia Carlstedt. (Btw, this design comes as a wallpaper mural, as well as a renter-friendly canvas that can be custom sized. Score!)Bedroom PlansI quickly threw together a mood board of what I envisioned for the room, and then grabbed a measuring tape to figure out what size I wanted the canvas to be.DSC_0368I wanted to give ALL THAT SPACE above the bed something to talk about, but didn’t want it to look off-balance. I roughly taped an outline of the area I was working with to help me decide on measurements.


After living with a big square on the wall for a few days (well almost a square – I ran out of tape), I decided to go for a canvas slightly smaller, with a bit less height to it. Full of confidence that only comes from sticking tape on a wall, I placed my order and got the accompanying DIY frame as well.

If you follow me on Instastories, you know that I was a tad worried about putting the canvas on the frame and stretching it myself. The DIY frame was actually quite user friendly, and I was able to do it ALL BY MYSELF!DSC_0380DSC_0390The DIY frame also came with one wall bracket. At first I was unsure about hanging such a large piece on one nail, but it is pretty lightweight, and is fully secured to the wall with one central bracket. I’m so pleased with it, and the end result is pretty fabulous. 😍DSC_0446I’m saving a full reveal for next week with an updated room tour, but here’s a sneak peek for now. :)
