Tired of staring at the same old boring walls day after day and want to try something a bit different? These creative wall decorating ideas should inspire you to give your walls and your home the facelift they deserve.
If you can’t decide which colour to paint your walls, or maybe the thought of painting at all seems like too much effort, then why not decorate them with paint charts instead? Pick a colour and graduate the shade, or turn your wall into all the colours of the rainbow.
Terrariums are becoming a popular alternative to traditional house plants. They’re an attractive and low-maintenance option and can be far more flexible from a design perspective than a simple plant in a pot. Try hanging them off a wall mount like in the example above.
Get out there with your Polaroid camera and start taking pictures. They could be of everything and anything, or of specific things that interest you, but once you have them, you’ll have a quick and easy way to decorate the wall of one of your rooms.
Sometimes, to come up with interesting decor ideas you’ve really got to start thinking outside the box. Just take the example in the picture above, where ceiling medallions have been painted and added to the wall for a unique and creative decorating solution.
Alternatively, hang a selection of decorative plates on your wall. Search out unique and eye-catching specimens that will draw the attention rather than fade into the background. And for extra impact, hang the plates somewhere other than the kitchen or dining room, which are exactly the areas people would expect to see this kind of decor.
Forget the usual pictures and paintings and find something a bit different to put in a frame – like these vintage handkerchiefs. Whether it’s sheet music, old love letters, or a few dried flowers, if it can fit in a frame then there’s no real reason not to frame it.
No shelves? No problem. Hang a couple of old drawers and use them instead to display your favourite bits and pieces. Just make sure to spruce up the drawers first by lining the bottom with decorative wallpaper.
Don’t hide your extensive collection of hats away in a cupboard. Show them off by making a feature of them in your home. That also goes for shoes, bags, or any other clothing accessory for that matter.
A gallery wall filled with mirrors of all different shapes, sizes, and styles will not only give your room a quirky appeal, it will also help brighten it up. With so many types of mirror to choose from, you shouldn’t have any trouble creating something interesting as well as individual.
