From vintage to contemporary, it's easy to find ways to make any room special with wall art. Creating a motif with unexpected items can be a conversation piece in any room. It's fun to come up with new uses for old items or use new items in unconventional ways. Searching around in thrift stores and other fun places, you never know what you might find to adorn your walls with. Whatever your particular taste, you can personalize your space with decorative wall decor.
Are you decorating a small or a spacious room? Large rooms look much better when you have wall accents that are scaled to the size of the room. Large mirrors, tapestries and other artwork can make a single wall the focal point of the room. For a smaller room, it's best to keep the artwork on your walls smaller so that it appears balanced and doesn't overwhelm the room. Think about hanging three related prints above your sofa, arranged in a level line straight across. Always use odd numbers of items, such as groups of 3 or 5 when decorating a wall.
Lighting is an important consideration for wall art. Carefully placed spotlights can draw attention to an attractive piece of artwork. The lighting does, however, need to be subdued to avoid inadvertent glare. Be careful to balance the room by not placing all your wall decor in one half of the room. Experiment with the positioning before you commit to hanging the pieces. You can create a nice touch of diversity by using different sized frames in paintings and mirrors.
