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.
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.
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.
