Wall Décor Ideas for Perfect Interiors

Just as paintings look incomplete if you focus on just the object and don't pay attention to the background, so do homes look unfinished if their walls are bare of any adornment. While it is true that walls are present for structural support there is no reason why you cannot jazz them up! Whether it is framing your favorite pictures in an arrangement or using simple washi tape hacks, here are some amazing tips to beautify the walls of your homes, from luxurious ideas to budget-friendly ones!

1. Mirrors
Gilt-edged and ornate mirrors lend a beautifully rich touch to walls and make the room feel a lot more spacious too. Adjust the size and placing of the mirror according to the size of the room, and make sure it reflects a statement décor piece or something spectacular. Mirrors above the fireplace, or floor length borderless mirrors placed near potted plants look fantastic too.

2. Wall-Sculptures
There may not be enough space in your house for a full sized sculpture, but what is stopping you from picking up fascinating wall-sculptures? You can choose from a vast array of options be it African tribal masks or abstract sculptures or figurines from flea markets. Group multiple, small sculptures in a pattern or go with one center piece!

3. Wall Hangings
If your home has a more bohemian, fun vibe to it, one brilliant interior wall idea is putting up wall hangings. These are made from a variety of textures such as wool, silk, knit crochet etc. You can choose to have an illustrated wall hanging, or a more kitsch one which incorporates multiple pieces of fabric and threadwork. You can also wrap the wall hangings around hard canvas boards and nail them to the wall for a more polished look.

4. Artwork
Art need not be made by avant-garde artists or the most popular landscape painters. Art can be anything you love, in any medium. A pretty cute trick is to frame pictures of kittens and puppies in pastel, wooden frames. The world is your oyster!

5. Collectibles
This one requires a little more prolonged effort than the other tips. But it is something that will look beautiful and is completely personalized. Many people have collections of plates, stamps, coins, etc. You can decide to either frame these in bunches, or hang up your entire wall with stunning porcelain/other collectible plates from your travels over the years.

There you have it! Five compact, mostly easy to accomplish interior wall ideas that will make your home look wonderful and well designed.

How to Make Your Home’s Exterior Look Better

How to Make Your Home’s Exterior Look Better

Whenever one thinks of design and décor, it is always the interior of the home one focuses on. But the truth is that the exterior of the house matters just as much; if not more. The exterior of your home is the first thing people will see and in a row of homes well done up, letting yours fall into a state of disrepair will make you look like a callous homeowner. The exterior of your home also requires regular upkeep since it is the part facing the external elements. Here are some outdoor wall décor ideas for your home.

1. Reuse Old Furnishings
If you have leftover wood from previous redecoration efforts etc. you can finally put it to good use. You can sand and smoothen out slim pieces for an even effect to them before making a simple pattern and using it as a textured faux façade on one of the walls as a statement look.

2. Window Planters
This idea works best if your windows have coloured frames but even if they don't there isn't any reason to fret. Window planters are a wonderful solution to the maze of concrete jungle we all live in. They're your chance to have a spot of greenery at home which is convenient, pretty and easy to maintain! Choose planters that flower and consult your local nursery before selecting the seeds that yield the best results.

3. Old Window Grills
Scrounge the flea markets and antique shops for unique wrought-iron window grills. You can either use them on your own windows, or just hang them up with some lights in front of an exposed brick front. If you are using them as window grills on your windows, try to select grills that match closely in colour but aren't necessarily the same. The mismatched grills will give a quaint and fun look.

4. Mosaics
Mosaics are a fun way to brighten up any surface and are most commonly used on garden tables or pool bottoms etc. They are used in multiple patterns and designs such as flowers, fishes, scenery etc. But instead of making a mosaic tabletop, you can create the mosaic on moderately heavy surface and frame it on the wall instead. They're very eye-catching and are sure to be the topic of conversation with your guests!

There you have it, four fantastic ways to brighten up the exterior of your house while not burning a hole in your pocket!

In the world of home décor, professionals and enthusiasts have waxed eloquent about every colour, hue and shade there is and the merits and demerits of choosing the right colour. But the colour grey has been curiously neglected and it is only in the last couple of years that we have seen its rise from an understated, subtle accent colour, to a part of the main colour palette.

People perceive colours in certain ways according to socialization, association, psychology etc. For example, red is considered bold and a sign of anger, blue indicates power and depression etc. But when it comes to grey, nobody is very sure where it can be placed. The colour is actually surprisingly versatile and has multiple undertones so it can be incorporated in a lot of décor styles. Here are a few examples of how to use modern colour schemes for living rooms, bedrooms or anywhere in the house.

1. Light and Airy
Whatever misconceptions you have about grey being a dull, boring colour it is time you got rid of them. Using a cool tone of grey such as light ash grey or a blue-grey with bright citrusy colours will give your room a beautifully balanced look. Pair this colour scheme with white accents such as white side tables or a footstool and your living room will appear straight out of magazine advertising chic comfort.

2. Metallic Glam
One thing to keep in mind when using an unconventional colour such as grey is that the normal rules don't apply. Metallic greys are best paired with cool dark hues such as navy blue or oxblood red but deciding to lend the colour some warmth by pairing it with ochre yellow or subtle tones of copper won't go amiss either!

3. Get Earthy
One way to perk up or tone down a grey colour scheme is to experiment around with the accessories. Warm grey tones like fossil grey on sofa sets looks amazing combined with jade green pillows and a wicker table. Choose lighting which plays up the undertones of the hue chosen.

So there you have it, three stylish ways to incorporate the coolest colour of this side of the decade into your home's colour palette the next time you want to opt for modern colour schemes.
