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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
