One of my favorite ways to decorate the wall is by using architectural elements. By this, I mean old doors, wrought iron gates, corbels, porch pieces – anything that you might normally find on the outside of the house can add depth and interest to your inside walls. When it comes to architectural elements, the more wear the piece has and the chippier the paint, the better! This aging and wear give character to the piece and adds interest.
If you really want to make a huge statement in your room, then you might want to opt for a wall stencil or mural. Some of these murals can take up the whole wall and have a realistic look to them. I love the ones that look like french doors opening up into a beautiful garden or view of the sea.
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 smaller room, it`s best to keep the artwork on your walls smaller so that it appears balanced and doesn`t overwhelm the room. Think about hanging three related prints above your sofa, arranged in a level line straight across. Always use odd numbers of items, such as groups of 3 or 5 when decorating a wall.
