Today’s wall was inspired by Shay, who is looking for ways to bring some pastel elegance into her bedroom.
Her key words:
“Simple, elegant, pastel colours. Unusual images, vintage.”
Some of the specific loves she mentioned were J.K. Rowling and Back to the Future.
Pretty in Pastel Gallery Wall for an Elegant Bedroom
Shay’s request was a little on the minimal side, which ultimately jives with the rest of her keywords (simple, elegant).
She did give me a link to her Tumblr, which I promptly spent an hour scrolling through and chuckling at the memes. It’s always helpful to see a peek of the personality of the person I’m working with. Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram — send me your links so I can pick up on your vibes.
Soft colors and simple imagery with a kick of vintage – that’s what I went for. With just enough black thrown in to be sassy. You gotta have the sass.

If You Wanna Splurge
Sometimes, no matter how long you search for the perfect free printable (hey, it might still be out there!), there comes a time in every curator’s life when you simply must pay for good, quality art. Please do. I believe in supporting artists!
This is what I’d buy for Shay. I really wanted to work in some Harry Potter or Back to the Future art for her, but I was coming up short. If you’re willing to spend a few bucks, though, worlds of possibility open up. Take a look at “This is Heavy” by Jade Jones and the Harry Potter Patronus Charm by Digital Print Charlie, both of which would fit perfectly into the color scheme of the gallery wall I created above.
