Wall Decor / June 4, 2018 / Finley Mullin.
No matter your style, there are tricks that can amp up your walls and bring out your personality and taste. Whether you are an art collector, a nature enthusiast, or a book lover, your walls can be customized so that you can be surrounded by the things you adore. In addition to adding to the walls, think about decorating the walls themselves.
What if you are hanging wall art over a sofa, bed or table? Choose a piece of art or a series, that is the same length as the furniture piece or smaller. Avoid wall decor that is wider than the furniture piece, it looks totally weird. What if you have a gigantic wall? Large canvas wall art can be very expensive or hard to get into your apartment.
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.
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.
