Wall Decor / September 4, 2018 / Lucia Valdivia.
We have all been there. Blank walls can be a total headache when you do not have time, funds or ideas, but they certainly do not have to be. I have rounded up some wall decor ideas for every type of person, the DIY decorator, total trendsetter, penny pincher, plant person, vintage visionary, focused functionalist and salvaging soul.
The other way is to start with a central, dominant piece, hang it in the middle, and then add things around it organically and over time. Whichever method you choose, avoid a boring grid like pattern by mixing in items of various shapes and textures. An oval mirror, a textile, a clock, historic artifacts, musical instruments all are great for breaking up the straight lines of square and rectangular framed photos and art.
Stand back a few feet and see if you like where it sits on the wall. Get artsy with this, maybe you want to hang your wall art slightly off center because there is a plant in the corner or a chair that will block some of it. Create a vignette, or setting, like the image above, where the art is part of the grouping and slightly off center.
If you are trying to decorate a small home, it can sometimes feel like your options are limited. And while there is not much you can do to add square footage, there are plenty of ways to make your tiny apartment feel perfectly put together. The key is taking advantage of the largest open spaces you have, your walls. Those empty walls are filled with possibilities and a few additions can make a small apartment feel cozy and stylish, instead of stark and cramped.
