OK, so walls can't really talk but they do communicate. Bellacor, a large online retailer of home lighting and design accessories, offers a few tips to help you think creatively about the role walls play in expressing a home's style and personality.
Walls are the largest design element in a room (not counting the floor.) What you choose to display on them has a huge influence on the tone of a space and is a quick way to put your unique signature on a room.
Bellacor suggests that you first decide what mood you want the room to convey and then choose wall art to achieve it. For instance, you can make bedrooms whisper with soft, textile wall hangings, woven tapestries or silk wall art. Or you can make an entertainment area come alive with fun, colorful posters and conversation-starting wall sculpture.
Take advantage of an open or vaulted foyer to greet guests in grand style with a large-scale painting or 3-dimensional wall art. To make a smaller entryway feel larger, hang a mirror facing towards a larger area. You can also welcome guests with several smaller framed prints, proportionate to the space.
When shopping for wall art for large spaces like media rooms, dining rooms and living rooms, Bellacor recommends that you create a strong focal point in the room -- too many small pieces can make a room look cluttered. Also, make a room more interesting by mixing textures and finishes: metal, canvas or glass wall decor can be hung next to wood, textiles and architectural elements.
No matter what your color palette is; from cool blues and greens or warm earth-tones, to regal jewel-tones or vibrant primary colors, Bellacor makes it easy to find wall art to fit. Just search by the main color in your scheme to narrow down the selection. Bellacor also breaks down wall decor into easy to search artistic styles like Art Deco, Asian, Contemporary, Country or Rustic Lodge.
In the end, all that matters is that the walls of your home reflect you -- your unique style, tastes and personality. Bellacor will help you make your walls tell your story the way you want it told.
