How many times have you looked in a modern or contemporary home and noticed that it looks a lot like an art gallery? Why not use this effect to it's full potential. If you are creating a contemporary living room, why not use this space as your own personal gallery to show off a special sculpture or piece of wall art. You can use lighting to visually point everyone's eyes towards the piece as soon as they enter the room. You can even arrange the furniture in the room so guests can take a seat and contemplate the beauty in front of them.
One of the best and easiest way is to add texture to the wall. There are so many wallpapers that have texture, and it is a simple task to paper the wall or walls with a wallpaper that has a raised design, or is made to look like bamboo or linen. Of course, this can be brought to an extreme, and there have been avant garde decorators who adhered straw or paper bags to a wall to achieve texture, but this is not a solution that is for everyone.
Wall decals are a fairly new type of wall art. Wall decals are adhesive prints that can be stuck onto the wall and if necessary, removed and swapped out for new wall decals as desired. Like the painting or the photograph, a wall decal can be any number of designs or prints. For example, a wall decal could be a large geometric print. It could be a group of bubbles. It could be a tree or a flower, it could also be a person. Essentially, any graphic that can be made on a computer can be made into a wall decal.
