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.
Wall decor in your home is almost as important as the furnishings-whilst some homes might look great with absolutely no wall mirrors or wall art, most will look rather dull. A well chosen painting or mirror can greatly enhance any room, but it is vital that the piece is hung correctly. Pictures and wall mirrors should be hung at eye level. This depends on whether the majority of people will be standing or seated in the room at any given time. For example, in a dining room, a piece of wall art or a wall mirror could be hung lower.
In a home built with traditional, symmetrically lined wall features, you can use decorative features to add style and interest to the space. Exotic colors, patterns, and even textures can go a long way toward making the space seem interesting, without disrupting the sense of unity which this architectural choice makes inherent. If your home has contemporary walls, scattered at random intervals lightly throughout the space, consider using a single color or pattern to bring unity to the area. Even if you can't help but change up the tones on the various walls, you should at least use a unifying factor, such as a single type of decorative piece, or a single color used on all of the trim and molding. This will ensure that the space doesn't get too disparate.
