From vintage to contemporary, it`s easy to find ways to make any room special with wall art. Creating a motif with unexpected items can be a conversation piece in any room. It`s fun to come up with new uses for old items or use new items in unconventional ways. Searching around in thrift stores and other fun places, you never know what you might find to adorn your walls with. Whatever your particular taste, you can personalize your space with decorative wall decor.
Today, you don`t have to put your modern art sculptures on a pedestal to be admired because there are plenty of fine wall art sculptures that you can hang on the walls. Usually, these are metal or a mixture of metal and wood and have a contemporary appeal. Wall sculptures are three-dimensional and stick out a bit from the wall adding depth and interest. Modern, contemporary, eclectic, and zen type decorating themes can benefit from these the most.
When considering wall treatments and the wall decorating ideas you have in mind, it is also important to keep in mind what the room will be used for and what type of ambiance you want to create. For example, when it comes to choosing a color scheme, research shows that red will not be calming, but will excite those who enter. Blue or tan walls are more calming and relaxing. With bold colors, you may choose to do all the walls or just one accent wall. Be careful about choosing lighter colors. You may want to splurge and purchase a washable paint if little hand prints might be a permanent part of your décor.
For a small girl, consider painting the walls a pastel shade of pink, adding a wide border around the top of the wall with wallpaper, and then place a mural on the wall that fits the theme. A pastel pony or delicate flowers add punch and make the room unique.
