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.
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.
These days, you don`t have to go to salvage yards or dumps to find this type of wall decor. In fact, you can buy new items that are made to look like old architectural pieces. My personal favorite is wrought iron pieces that look like old gates or fences. These go with a wide range of decorating themes and look great on your walls.
It`s easy to update living areas by putting a fresh coat of paint on your walls and paint doesn`t have to be just a solid color anymore. There are also all kinds of faux decorating techniques you can try such as sponging, ragging, faux marble, faux wood, faux animal prints, just to name a few. Hand painting a wall mural or a faux scene is another creative wall decorating idea to add originality and interest to your walls.
