Shopping for wall decor is one of the most exciting parts of decorating a home. Designs can range from tiny frames to oversize 3D sculptures, but you shouldn’t let the vast choices discourage you. One person’s idea of the perfect wall art will be totally different from the next, so focus on what you are most drawn to, but keep an open mind — you may be surprised by what catches your eye. Read the following to help achieve your desired look.
Mix and match wall decorations for a custom look.
Who’s to say novelty signs, mixed-media art and metal wall art don’t belong on the same surface? The key to getting your personalized style right is to pick the pieces that you can’t live without, regardless of their medium or composition. Drawings, paintings, prints and posters have just as much of a right to be together as peanut butter and jelly. That’s not to say that a collection of coordinating photographs can’t look just as stunning, but it’s ultimately your preference that matters.
Think beyond the typical home wall decor.
Framed photos and pretty pictures are nice, but they aren’t your only option when it comes to decorating bare walls. Consider hanging up a unique rug or an intricate tapestry instead; these are not only visually appealing but add a textural element to your space. Have lots of trinkets and collectibles to display? Mount some attractive wall shelves and arrange them as you see fit. If you don’t want to poke holes through your drywall, try putting up some wallpaper or wall decals, which provide plenty of pizzazz on their own.
