Decorating is a never-ending process and trends are constantly changing. Redecorating your home from time to time will always provide you with fresh atmosphere and mesmerizing style, and most people achieve it by decorating the walls. Those big empty spaces are troublesome and decorating them can be quite a challenge. Leaving them dull and pale is never an option, even in the most minimalistic styles. Thus, you should explore some of the mind-blowing decoration options and find the best items that will fill your walls and provide comfortable and elegant atmosphere at your home.
1. Elegant wallpaper
Some people consider wallpaper old-fashioned. However, today there are thousands of patterns and colors of wallpaper that can completely transform a room. Depending on the style of your home, you can opt for minimalistic monochrome wallpaper in various shades of pastel colors. If you like patterns, you can easily find wallpaper with floral patterns, geometric shapes and different textures. Additionally, if you want to keep it elegant, you can create an accent wall with wallpaper and change the vibe in a certain room in no time, while the rest of the walls can even stay bare.
2. Photo gallery
Photos of your family and friends are probably one of the best ways to decorate a dull wall. You can even designate a whole wall to just photos and fill it floor-to-ceiling and create an amazing accent wall of memories. Also, you can focus on some artistic photos or photos of your favorite animals or plants. Make things interesting and hang photos of different sizes and darker frames to provide contrast. However, just be careful not to overcrowd the gallery wall. Incorporate some bigger frames and pictures to anchor the design while smaller photos are there to provide detail.
3. Décor and practicality
Sometimes you have to be practical, which can also be a great decorative method. If you love books and have plenty of them, why not turn a whole wall into a reading nook? Put up some simple shelves and organize all of your books and always have a place to read while your wall is decorated. Install some interesting pendant lighting above the shelves and enjoy your favorite books. Also, you can put up an oversized decorative wall clock which will bring elegance and practicality into the room. Another great idea is placing a bigger mirror that will instantly elevate the style of any room, while it provides an illusion of a bigger space and gives you the chance to always see how you look.
4. Rustic notes
If your whole interior design is rather simple and minimalistic, you can easily provide some contrast with some rustic notes. One of the most interesting ways to do that is by finding old-fashioned rustic baskets. They can be completely made out of wood or with some metal details, it is completely up to you. However, to make such wall décor more interesting or personal, you can have the names of your family members painted on the inside of the baskets.
5. Add fabrics
Decorating with fabrics is one of the biggest trends nowadays and tapestry and fabric panels are two of the favorite ways how. Make an accent wall in your living room or bedroom by hanging up some decorative tapestry with different patterns and colors contrasting the style of the room. Not only will you manage to solve the problem of an empty wall, but by providing fabrics you are providing a soft note of comfort to your home. As far as fabric panels are concerned, they are simple to make and you can incorporate as many different textures and colors as you wish and make the white empty wall elegant and fun.
As you can see there are numerous ways to decorate your empty walls. It might be difficult to think of something good, but as long as you preserve your own style and incorporate something personal, you will manage to create a cosy atmosphere and a comfortable but stylish home.
