Decorating a room involves more than just hanging curtains on the windows, throwing some pillows on the furniture and painting the walls. While these are all important parts of the decorating process, you can easily take your room to designer-level with creative wall décor.
Wall décor options vary widely.
The Traditional Painting
The traditional option is hanging a painting; one that is sized proportionately to the wall. You can take this a step further by incorporating a sense of design using multiple paintings arranged in an artistic pattern on the wall.
Some shelves have an artistic quality from the patterning in the wood grain to the cut of the support pieces. Box shelves can also create a bold look without having to be oversized to fit the wall space. Shelves can be used to hold pictures, statues, vases with flowers – just about anything that will fit the ambiance of the room.
Tapestries are made of fabric, which creates a warm and inviting feel to a room’s décor. Adding a tapestry to your space can add color and texture, while also expressing your sense of style.
Decorative mirrors add dimension to a room, and can make a smaller area feel much bigger. Mirrors don’t need to be large, nor do they need to be necessarily in one piece. Some decorators will place a mirror above the fireplace instead of a picture. Others will blend multiple mirrors in with framed pictures on the wall in a distinctive pattern. And some mirrors, like the ones from Kirkland’s, are a piece of art themselves, becoming a beautiful focal point for the room.
