A bedroom is often thought of as a haven where we can melt away our stressors, unwind, and find comfort after a long, tiring day.

To enhance the comfort of our happy place, we often customize it to fit our tastes. For instance, a bedroom with vibrant, energetic colors and fancy accents depicts a fun-loving, adventurous personality. A minimalist design, on the other hand, shows someone who values simplicity.

Simply put, your bedroom is a reflection of who you are. So, to personalize your room and give it that unique vibe you want, you can consider some modern art deco.

While the decor trends are constantly changing, we’ve compiled a list of several timeless art styles that remain relevant over time. So, without further delay, let’s get straight to it!

Modern Art Deco 2021: 10 Above-Bed Decor Ideas

Perhaps you’ve styled your room in the best way possible. You might have a few wall paintings, fancy furniture, a comfy, cozy bed draped in silk, expensively fluffy shams, and a bedside table to set your essentials on.

But what about the space right above your bed? Is it empty? Have you considered filling it up? If you haven’t, now is the right time!

Below, we’ve discussed 10 above-bed decor ideas with evergreen modern art deco.

1.   Protean - Minimalist Multi-Colored Lamp

Multicolored lamp 

Whether you’re a minimalist or an energetic soul, you will appreciate this one! Why? Because it caters to the needs of both.

This multi-colored lamp with a sleek design can be adjusted per your preferences. You can install this round-shaped lamp right above your bed and change the light with a single remote control.

With a range of colors (purple, red, green, blue, yellow, and orange), you can create your own aesthetic!

For instance, if you prefer a single color, you can set it accordingly. Nevertheless, you can also select multiple colors with one touch if you wish. Additionally, you can dim the lights to create a cozy atmosphere for a romantic night with your partner.

What’s more? It won’t take you more than 3 minutes to set up the lamp! All you need to do is follow the instructions on the manual and install it easily.

2.   Van Gogh Starry Night Painting

If you have an eye for aesthetics and a passion for art, here’s one for you. Perhaps all art lovers know the remarkable Starry Night painting by Van Gogh.

This artwork is a timeless modern art deco icon that inspires peace and tranquility wherever it's hung.

So, to complement your efforts of bedroom decor, consider hanging the Starry Night artwork right above your bed. Plus, if your room has white, coral, or pale yellow interior designing, a deep blue painting will blend in flawlessly and look stunning.

You can further reflect your artistic sensibilities with a frame that hangs above the painting. While you can incorporate your favorite quote in the canvas, but for it to fit seamlessly, we recommend Gogh's, “I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of stars makes me dream.”

Moreover, you also have the option to choose the color and font of the quote. Considering your room interior, you can opt for a color of your choice, but it’s best to go with denim, blue, or black (for a minimalist yet cohesive look).

Also, make sure you choose the font wisely. For instance, print writing might not go well with the artwork; therefore, it’s best to opt for cursive writing. Why? Because script writings enhance the visuals and creative art.

3.   HABOM Mason Jar

If you’re into vases or hanging decorations, HABOM Mason Jars are perfect for your room. First, this modern art deco has white flowers that give an exotic look. Second, the mason jars with strings of night light give the space a rustic feel.

Furthermore, the wooden frame comes in rustic white, khaki, orange, blue, green, and grey colors. So, you can opt for a color that goes along with your room decor and wall paint.

Also, it’s pretty easy to install. All you need to do is hammer a nail in the wall above your bed and hang the jars. Nevertheless, make sure you keep two things in mind:

  • Instead of hanging the jars straight together, keep them 2-3 inches apart, with one slightly above the other.
  • It's best to hang them closer to the headboard slat than far apart. Why? Because the mason jars are small and a lot of space between them will give a bland look to your bedroom.

So, whenever you feel like adding an element of vintage elegance to your room, Mason jars are a perfect choice!

4.   Airsai - Floating Plant Pot

 Floating Plant Pot

Airsai Floating Plant Pot is perhaps a whole new concept in home plant pots. With its unique yet minimalist design, this plant pot instantly captures the eye. While it sure is a plant pot, what makes it stand out is that it floats in the air, 1-2 inches above the shelf. Cool, right?

You may wonder how it floats; well, it's due to magnetic levitation. Besides floating, it also continuously rotates too. So, if your bed is beside a window, your plant is exposed to sunlight and wind alike.

Nevertheless, a floating plant would require you to install a shelf above your bed. Once you’ve set up a rack, you can place the pot to give a mesmerizing look to your bedroom.

Also, note that while setting up the plant pot, levitating it might require patience and practice before you finally succeed in adjusting it. But once you set it up, it gets easier.

This spinning floating plant pot will add a magical touch to your room and please adults and kids alike.
