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.
A kid's room is a perfect example of how this can be done. By starting with the walls, you can set the mood and basic style for the rest of the room. Choose to paint the walls with bright colors such as red, blue and yellow, adding stenciled pictures to the walls. For a small girl, consider painting the walls a pastel shade of pink, adding a wide border around the top of the wall with wall paper, and then place a mural on the wall that fits the theme. A pastel pony or delicate flowers add punch and make the room unique.
In a traditionally built house, the walls will most often be square, and symmetrical, with doors and windows placed at geometrically straight locations, in line with one another. More contemporary floor plans will usually call for an open space design, in which there are only a few walls, and most of the space flows naturally into itself.
