If you've been to Egypt or seen pictures of it you'll notice that Egyptian walls and pillars are full of carvings, especially on historical sites.
The carvings are of ancient Egyptian symbols that pictures their daily lives and believes. These picture symbols are ancient Egyptian writing system called hieroglyph.
But of course you don't have to learn too much about hieroglyphic art or carve your walls to create a nice Egyptian wall decor for this theme room. You can simply hunt for hieroglyphic wallpaper or wall stencils.
Camels are used as a common transportation in Egypt, so camel wall murals or wallpaper border also fit this Egyptian bedroom nicely.
While decorating with murals, whether you use stencils, stick-up ones or even paint your own, always remember not to make your walls overcrowded. Leave enough empty space for the eyes to rest.
Here is another easier and simpler idea: you can just paint the upper walls soft gold and the lower walls black, then add an Egyptian wallpaper border.
If you decide to paint the walls plain, some Egyptian themed wall art will get you into the theme. The Mummy movie poster, hieroglyphic wall art, pictures or paintings of pyramids and sphinx, and cute cartoonic camel wall art (especially for younger kids) are some ideas of what you can hang on the walls.
For this bedroom's Egyptian furniture, you can look for ancient-looking ones. Preferably ones with simple lines and NOT those vintage-looking with victorian style carvings.
On the budget? Get yourself simple lines unfinished furniture and paint it classic dark mahogany. It'll look great in this Egyptian bedroom.
After putting the furniture in, now you need to dress up the bed and windows.
Can't find an Egyptian bedding? Don't worry, any gold bedding set will do fine. It's even better if it has some black accent on. Gold and ivory is also good.
