When a well-furnished room still lacks something, try adding wall decor and mirrors. They help to anchor a space. Incorporating the walls into a roomʼs interior design provides cohesion and balance. Use materials, colors and finishes to solidify the roomʼs overall design scheme. Begin by picking something in the room that reflects the style and mood of the space. Suppose you have a midcentury modern living room with a white shag rug. Wall art with texture, colors and design similar to the rug will enhance the sense of unity and balance.
Confused about how large or small to go? Of course, all rules can be broken. However, when in doubt, measure the piece of furniture that will sit under the wall decor or mirror. The mirror or wall decor you select should be at least half as wide as the furniture but never wider. If you want to group several smaller pieces of wall art, arrange them on the floor and measure as one unit.
Get creative and experiment with different textures and patterns. When using patterns, itʼs acceptable to mix and match. However, you may want to stick with one wall to provide a focal point for the eyes. Never shy away from color, either. Transform a family room from bland to fascinating with colorful abstract wall decor. Create drama in a room by adding mirrors or wall decor with strong contrast to other pieces. Inject life into a dining room filled with natural wood furniture by hanging a large odd-shaped mirror on the wall. If youʼre trying to evoke a sense of tranquility in a room, stick with a monochromatic color scheme and select wall art with soothing round edges.
When it comes to using mirrors, the more you use, the brighter the room becomes. Mirrors reflect light and can enhance a color scheme. A good rule of thumb with mirrors and wall art is the smaller the space, the bigger and bolder you can go. In a powder room, try mounting two or three rectangular mirrors vertically to create the illusion of a higher ceiling. Incorporate functional wall decor, such as shelving. Turn a bare wall at the end of a galley kitchen into a decorative open pantry by mounting floating or bracket shelving. The key is to see walls as blank canvases that can be used to reinforce design elements found in furniture, floor coverings and architectural features.
