Once upon a time, our ancestors began to express their creativity and culture through the wall paint about their lives hunting, gathering, fighting off enemies. Also thousand of years ago, ancient Egypt began to sketch out the early human technology and inventions on the wall to record their prosperous era.
Today, we are surrounded by all forms of information recorder like books, gadgets, the internet. Our purpose for the living environment has been reversed. Even though we also use the wall to impress our visitors by displacing our unique personality, we rather focus to improve our lives with wall decors.
There are plenty of ideas and concepts to enhance one home space from blank and tedious, to enchanting and attractive. Therefore, if you already satisfied with your gorgeous wall decor, you might want to stop reading and check out our other blog idea. If not, I would love to share the following concepts.
Similar to the initial idea of using wall space to expressing our lives, wall poster is one of the most popular ways to stay on top of your story. Taking a step back from the vertical surface that you are about to enchant, it seems like you are adding a little detail to a larger picture. The room color scheme and layout should be considered when choosing the poster frame, size, proportion, and content. From here, you might be able to decide to match them with your existing layout and furniture or contrast them with an exotic painting.
One way to craft your wall story is to display one big poster. An enormous picture can be an ideal solution for a gorgeous wall without spending a lot of time decorating. From here, you can either decide to hang a nature painting, photograph or an artistic geometry, modern abstract. It depends on the overall room decoration style. Landscape painting about the tropical rain forests, frosty mountain or a sunny Hawaiian beach can create an unwind experience for viewers. On the other hand, a simple detail canvas is more suitable for the minimalist room decor.
Another way to also extend the creativity for your wall is to combine several image fragments into a group of picture frames. The trick is to create a pattern that all of your images are lined up and match up with each other. You can either display them by the 1:1:1 proportion. For instance, making a “4×4” or “6×6” grid provides a huge equalizer for the busy maximize room. While mixing up the unparalleled frames can reduce the monochromatic feeling for a minimal living room.
In contrast to the minimalist style, Bohemian decoration is often seen as the use of cotton tapestry for the wall environment. A giant dream catcher, intimate linen ornaments, or a floral blanker is only enough to prove a feature for an easy-going area.
Material for tapestry hanger does not necessarily make by the natural fabric. Nylon and polyester are an excellent source to present a dreamy night light landscape or a famous animated character for the kids. The cost of both organic and lab-compound material is relatively even. However, cotton material feels more natural and delight while nylon and polyester are more durable for long time usage. Either case, when decorating wall with printed tapestry, the important element to consider is the quality of the printed image. Image with the resolution of 400×600 pixels certainly not make a great wall ornament.
Sentiment Wall Decor
Eventually, we soon realize that there are not only just atheistic wall decor ornaments that can be displayed on the room backgrounds. Sentiments such as traveling experience, wedding or birthday photos can be also be stacked up into the horizontal lines and enlight them with a set of mini LED bulbs. This intimate style of wall ornament does not only create a unique look but also remind us about the valuable memories that we had.
In many cultures, the mirror is considering the sensitive wall ornament due to several reasons. Asian culture which respects the law of Feng Shui strongly discourages mirror displacement in the bedroom directly to the bed. Asian experts believe that the mirror can reflect negative energy while we are sleeping. Alternatively, the dining room is a good example of mirror placement since it can reflect the image of food and cozy dinners. It is not only doubling down the effect of happiness but also provide a visual perspective toward a narrow space to make it larger.
In addition, the Feng Shui principle compares the mirror with water. Placing mirrors over the fireplace can neutralize the overpower of the burning flame. While arranging it opposite to the garden view create harmony in natural elements.
Besides using pictures or photos to cover the room’s background, put up a few decorative ornaments is also an ideal technique to save space at the same time. Among an ocean of types for wall mounted shelves, I would recommend the floating shelf because of the elegant appearance and flexibility in decor. Instead of all the effort choosing the right wall paint, simply install a few wall racks. It allows you to freely display any preference decor such as plants, books, hobby collection, cups, dishes, or anything that spark joy.
White or Black Board
During my college time in Singapore, my teacher asked the student to pick up a marker pen and write down our assignment on the wall. I was shocked because I did not want to vandalize the school wall. Turn out, it was a brilliant idea about the classroom interior. To maximize the blank space, they simply replace the conventional wall paint into the whiteboard material, so that we could freely present our idea without running out of space. What a brilliant idea for a home surrounded by kids.
I almost forgot listing this important wall decoration as I am about to end this blog. This is like the completed edition wall sticker, but rather cover a portion or whole wall space. Wallpaper offers an alternative for wall material as you can change it to wood, brick or metal by the corresponding texture. In addition, there is an ocean of cartoonish and adorable patterns for kids or the feminist room.
