Here are some wonderful wall art ideas to spruce up your living room walls, and break the monotony.
The walls are the most exposed surfaces of our houses, and the way we decorate them can say lot about our taste, personal choice, lifestyle, etc., besides affecting our mood, and adding to the overall ambiance of the room. They are surely pleasing to the eyes. So if your walls are bare, and in need of some tender lovin’ care, here are few wall art ideas for your living room, that may inspire you to change the look of your room, by giving your wall some character and personality!
Metal Wall Hangings and Murals
Murals are beautiful way to decorate walls. There are designs, colors, and you can personalize them to suit your taste. You can make murals of people or of objects or even get mural of family picture. Metal wall hangings are the easiest and non-messiest way to decorate your walls, and they come in variety of styles, so you never have to worry about not finding something that will go with your decor. They can be small or big, and you can pick few big as well as small ones, and see what patterns you can make out of them. They require no maintenance, unlike the vases that are mentioned below, and can look quite ostentatious, if that’s what you like.
Vases on Walls
Vases on the walls are an amazing way to bring some greenery inside your house, without cluttering your floor. You can also mix and match the shades to either go with your wall paint or contrast with it. Like, maybe if you have wall that is yellow, you can have red button roses to create nice contrast – red against yellow – or the exact opposite. There are no restrictions to your creativity here, and you can try clay pots, or glass or plastic pots, in holder, hung individually, or in small group, with real flowering plants or plastic ones, or simply put up stark white vases in group against some darkly painted background. Although traditionally used on outdoor walls, they look great against textured living room wall.
Unique Plate Hangings
Got plates, old china that you don’t want to use anymore? Here is one cool living room wall art ideas that will take care of all your old plates. Just put them up on your walls as shown alongside! Easy and quite useful. You don’t even need to have matching plates.
Photographs, instant shots, frames, etc., are great way to add some color and spruce up your wall. If you put up pictures of your family, kids, spouse, parents, etc., it will add that extra personal touch and warmth to the wall. You can use any sort of frames, as almost all of them will look nice. You could also try some unique frames like the ones made with stones or pebbles as shown in the last picture above! Looks very pretty and is really easy to put together. Make sure that your frame matches the rest of your home decor, and doesn’t break the uniformity of your style. The stone frame will go well with an exposed brick wall with small patch, painted brightly at the center of the wall, for the frame.
Abstracts/ Appliques/ Canvas
Appliques, although in more suitable designs and pictures, are great way to give your wall little something. Having part of the wall painted with abstract designs, or landscapes with mirror on the opposite wall, work really well in making your wall stand out. Canvas paintings have always added warmth to drab and monotonous wall, and if you get big canvas with warm colors, it will immediately affect the entire room, and make it warm and cheerful. Abstract wall art ideas will gel really well with contemporary and minimalist styles of home decor, while warm canvasses will gel well with the country style home decor, especially if you have nice fireplace in your living room. There are many canvas wall art ideas that you can explore, as well as some unusual paper mache, and metal wall art ideas that you can try.
Contemporary Wall Art Ideas
Contemporary wall art encompasses the contemporary, unique styles of decorating your walls. Little deviant from the normal styles, these are for the experimenters, and can really make wall stand out if done tastefully. You could try out different and pleasant sculptures, maybe little along the lines of modern art, to give your wall little something. Maybe you could add wood window frame if you think your wall is looking small, and then add canvas of some pleasing scenery to get the effect of staring out of the window, when actually there is none! Its great way to make your wall look bigger, and to make your room look more spacious, much like mirror would do. Another brilliant idea is to make colorful pebble collage, like the one shown in the second picture. This will make your wall look really beautiful without burning hole in your pocket.
