“Beauty is power; a smile is its sword.” - John Ray
This mirror is perfect for the room - the black frame matches the darker blue and brown tones there. It also adds more of a modern style to the space, since the rug and center table evoke a more rustic vibe.
A Huge Artwork Piece
A huge piece of artwork (or several pieces that form one) is one of the best ways to make a statement! If you feel like your living room is a bit too neutral, find something that has strong colors. Or, if the room already has too much color, find a more neutral piece, like a desert landscape, for instance.
A tapestry has a certain vibrancy, but at the same time it also brings in that sweet touch of romance. The living room above makes a nice blend with the colors blue, pink, and the tapestry itself! You can also notice the balance between dark and light tones...everything’s just perfect here!
A gallery wall can make any room look incredible, and it’s so simple to put together! You can choose:
- Inspirational printable messages
- Abstract paintings
- Geometric shapes
- Family photos
- Tourist spots around the globe
These are just some of the many options you can go with! The best thing about gallery walls is that they allow you full liberty to personalize them the way you prefer.
A Piece of Nature
We’ve talked a while ago about how to build your own vertical garden, and this is one idea you can put to practice here. Or maybe a hanging garden, a horizontal garden...even floating shelves with a garden display can work!
Colorful Focal Point
This idea can be balanced with the artwork placing or even the tapestry choice. You could also go with a colorful wallpaper, a unique decorating piece like a wall clock, a wall lamp, or a wood art board!
Set a board or painting that either blends in with the wall color or with the elements you have around the room. That way, the decoration won’t have all the attention, but your wall will have a nice accent to look at!
Of course floating shelves would be an option! They’re so incredibly versatile. You can mix colorful accent pieces with artwork, you can use the shelves to show off your gallery wall, or you could even use them to house your mini indoor garden. Though, if you’re an avid reader, this can be a chance to keep around even more books!
Lately, everywhere I look and all articles I read on decor seem to have something map related. Whether that has actually become a thing or not, I do love the idea! You could go for a vintage style, try something colorful and modern, or a cork board map - where you pin all the places you’ve already visited!
For all the cat lovers out there, this can be a nice way to refresh your home look! Make a playground with some shelves and wooden boxes, or a simple DIY cat bridge that your cats will absolutely love.
Since we’ve covered the gallery wall, colorful standouts, and artwork pieces, this is a bonus that matches all three on this one wall. It looks so beautiful, classy, and inspiring that I had to have this photo here!
Hope you’ve enjoyed these ideas! If you have any doubts on how to decorate your home and you want to get a pro’s opinion on it, don’t hesitate to call for an estimate on your decorating project.
