Wall Decor / July 20, 2018 / Finley Mullin.
Instead of forking over a hefty chunk of change for a woven wall hanging, make your own. Frame this common thrift store find for a pop of color on your wall. Choose a scarf with an intricate pattern for more visual impact. Buy an inexpensive ceiling medallion at a home improvement store to mount on your wall rather than the ceiling.
You could also find a wonderful art print or oversized mirror framed in reclaimed wood or metal. Large pieces like these not only make short work of large walls, they are also excellent conversation starters and can even lend added drama to a room when they cast shadows at certain times of day. Another tip is to hang similar objects in pairs or triptychs. After all, three prints are better than one when it comes to large walls.
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.
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.
