Never underestimate the power of a wall and just how great of a resource it is for decorating and adding charm and personality to your home. To prove it to you, we’ve collected some ideas to enhance a blank wall that will make your space look more elegant and appealing.
Pick a stylish pair of paintings
When decorating your own home, artworks are an expression of who you are and how you see yourself. So think carefully about which theme will best suit you and what colours you like the most. One attractive option is to choose a set of two paintings, either stacked or side by side (as you can see in the picture above).
Lean a large mirror against the back of the fireplace
If you want to add a French touch to your living space, lead a large-scale mirror against a short ledge, like this fireplace mantel. This way, you will catch the light to enlarge the room and illuminate it. Besides, add some plants, a natural fibre lamp and earthy tones such as brown or beige for maximum style and comfort.
Create an inspiring gallery wall
Creating a gallery wall is a simple way to bring personality and inspiration to any room. All you need is a hammer, some frames and a collection of your favourite art. Moreover, it is a great way to support budding contemporary artists from every corner of the globe.
Display a macrame wall hanging
Sometimes, all you need is a striking piece of art decor to bring character and visual interest to a room. Find a macrame wall hanging, or better yet, make your own, and add some texture and boho lux to an otherwise empty wall. Combine it with natural materials such as wood or leather to create a cosy atmosphere that will warm your home.
Show off your books
Lastly, consider placing a lovely, functional bookcase along the wall to increase storage space and improve organization and functionality for the entire family. Place books both vertically and horizontally for a casual, natural style that will impress your guests. Moreover, add some decorative accessories, such as bookends, candleholders, vases or photo frames, to give it a personal and unique touch.
