Old school green chalkboards offer a vintage vibe that their counterparts can not match. The best part? You can change the look of your wall with some chalk and a little creativity. Dress up old portraits with ornate brass frames for a vintage inspired look. Pair the vintage wall decor with more modern pieces to achieve an overall eclectic feel.
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.
If you are hanging art above a piece of furniture, leave between 3 and 8 inches of space above a sofa or table. Filling a large wall space can be intimidating, and one of the easiest wall decoration ideas is to rely on a single large piece to do the job. This can be an original painting or a large scale fine art photograph, both can be expensive options, so take the time to visit galleries, meet artists and find a work you absolutely love.
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.
