How about 3 larger ones over the bed.  It doesnt have to fit completely over the bed, but can spread across that whole wall?

I think the one you posted with 3 small ones looks quite nice. You just need to raise them higher, they’re too close to the bed.

If you’re worried that it doesn’t fill the space enough (I think it’s fine though), you could do the second option you posted (maybe with smaller frames though and then do a large oval or circular item above the bed. Rounded things sometimes look reallyl great with angled ceilings because the lines aren’t competing.

 Yea, I think the 3 large ones are too overpowering.

@CorgiTales: I like the 3 larger photos but I would place them a bit higher on the wall.  Maybe look at doing one of those series of canvases that together make a whole image?

ETA: Something like this:

Or this but in the opposite direction so it follows the shape of your wall:

I’d use the 3 larger ones and make the center one higher with the sides closer in…

I think part of the problem is the use of scale. The lamps on the bedside table are too small for their intended purpose.

Lamps for reading in bed need to be tall enough so that the light comes down over your shoulder when sitting in bed.

I would  place tall mirrors on either side of the bed behind the bedside tables. It will fill in the space. They don’t have to be as massive as this. You can get mirrors like this at Lowes, Home Depot, Target etc. Replace the lamps with something larger. You can see that they used wall lamps here, but the point to note is how high they are.

Swing arm lamps are great for bedside lamps because you can bring the light closer for reading.

The space above the bed won’t seem so massive once the side space is filled in with mirror.

You could then use 2 or even all 3 of your pics. If you use 3 pics each 16″ wide , you will be using 48″ of wall space at a minimum.

I really like Julies1949’s idea! The first thing I noticed in your bedroom is how tiny the lamps look! Also, maybe move the floor lamp? It’s throwing me off a little bit. Pinterest has many many wonderful home decor ideas, you could always look there too!

@tranquility:I looooove this idea. I think I’m going to steal it for my inspiration folder for our room lol

 @CorgiTales:I agree with the PP who mentioned putting something oval right over the bed. Another idea would be to add some wall sconces with candles or maybe even the box frame things that they have with candles/knick knacks in them…
