Think about the style of your rooms before deciding what items to use to decorate your walls. Is your living room decorated in a contemporary or ultra-modern theme, or do you prefer a more traditional look, even leaning toward the country? These things make a difference when choosing the accents or designs you will use to decorate a wall.
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.
Stencils are a bit artsier than murals and can give your room a handmade look. I`ve seen some great stencils that look like rock walls with vines and ivy. If you are the least bit creative, then stencils will allow you to exercise that creativity to make a piece of wall art that you can enjoy every day as well as show off to your guests. Wall murals and stencils go with a variety of decorating themes including the old world, shabby chic, french country, and even some contemporary styles.
