Wall Decor / June 30, 2018 / Finley Mullin.
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.
Our series of embellished fabric canvases create a wonderfully calm collection with just enough sparkle to create an impactful display. For asymmetrical galleries, be sure to include 1 to 2 larger scale pieces, hanging these first and then group your smaller pieces around them. The easiest way to create an effective gallery wall is to first trace around each piece onto newspaper or kraft paper, cut out the resulting shapes and using bluetack, hang the templates on the wall, moving them around until you find the best combination for your wall art display.
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.
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.
