With a contemporary or modern space, you want to stick with things that are sleek and free from intricate details. A single large mirror or abstract pieces that are square, round or triangular in shape work well with this type of decor. For those who love a warm, inviting appeal, artwork can be a bit more detailed. Tapestries, prints, and framed artwork are more country themed, consisting of rich, warm colors such as rust, cream, blue, pumpkin, and gold. Just be sure to carry through with the overall color of the room, so that your wall decor complements or contrasts with furnishings, floors, and other accents.
Another fun and easy item to use as wall art that can be found at many yard sales, thrift stores, junkyards, and antique stores are old windows and doors. Finding a vintage window can be an interesting way to add an old-world feel to any room. Using a door on a large wall can add something unexpected to the room. It`s fun to hunt around for cool and interesting doors and windows. Whatever your style, you can find something to make the room your own with decorative wall decor.
There are many other types of interesting wall decor you can use to liven up a room, but the three listed above are a great place to start looking. Depending on your decorating theme, you should be able to find something to match. Decorating your walls properly will help tie your room decor together and give your home a professional, finished look.
A good way to decide which wall treatments are the best for you is to browse through catalogs and decorating magazines or to attend open houses to get some great wall decorating ideas that will be just perfect for your home.
