What do you think? Here are twelve amazing ideas to stir your imagination. Read on, and go decorate your walls!
- Wooden Plank Designs
Wood is a great idea in case you’re looking to add elements of rustic style or country living. From a simple plank decoration to wooden mosaics and medallions, there are plenty of options to explore. To apply, there are a variety of materials including barnwood, white wood, plywood and maplewood.
- Word Art
Word art is a fantastic way for modern families to showcase their memories in the form of loving reminders of quotes, poems and sayings. It can be applied as decals, wall stickers or bespoke wallpapers. And if you have a knack for calligraphy, it’s time to give it a try. Apart from homes, word art is ideal for office spaces as well. Here, it can be applied as embossed word logos or word clouds.
- Metal & Alloy Plaques
If you’d visit a medieval castle or an old fort museum, you’ll notice the walls emblazoned with shining armours, murals, crests of swords and plates. This is how they displayed their victories. You too can bring home this medieval style by decorating it with metal plaques, imitation swords or decals made in alloys like brass and bronze.
- Personalised Fabric Painting
Take out an old curtain or your mom’s old saree from the storage trunk; take out a box of fabric paints and some brushes; and then let’s get started. Look over some designs from the internet and choose what suits your taste. You can start from a simple geometric one and then, move on to 3D styles. Fabric painting is something which you can customize with every occasion or season you wish to, and hence, it makes up for a terrific idea for decoration of walls.
- Stained glass windows
We might not experience what it feels like to live in the fabulous Jodhpur fort but we can definitely experience what it feels to look through its stained glass windows. Having stained glass windows is a wonderful idea if your home’s windows receive plenty of sun in the noon.
- Wainscoted panels
Unlike the general notion, wainscoting isn’t just for bathrooms or offices. In fact, when done properly it looks amazing in literally any room of your house, from bedroom to lobby and dining. Bead board is a similar alternative to it.
- Lights Display Dream
Let your bedside wall breathe in waves of a dreamy style with string lighting. Whether you’re using tiny bulbs or rice light beads, you can pair it with pretty much any accessory including birds, stars, photographs, notes, quotes and so on.
- Picture Gallery
Obvious and simple but stunning. However, first you would need to choose a pattern or form in which to display them on your wall. It might be a collage, or it might be chronological or random. Interplay of colours and movement too plays a big role.
- 3D Mural Wallpaper
A 3D wallpaper is like the jewellery of your wall. Textures and embossing paired up with the depth of a beautiful painting can create a magnificent décor in your living space. Only, it requires a considerably sized wall, some extra expense and a good installation designer. Alternatively, you can use a textured tapestry in place of mural and hang it down through a cloth hanger.
- Ornate Wall Clock
Intricately ornamented wall clocks are a no brainer. Whether you have got a bungalow or a small sized apartment, an ornate clock offers an antique finish to your home. In place of clock, you can also use an ornate mirror.
- Egyptian Heteroglyphs Wall Art
If you’re interested in history, astrology or mythology, you can decorate your walls using Egyptian heteroglyphs decals and wall stickers. Plus, these days there are various framed tiles available in the market.
- Abstract Art with Masking Tape
Masking tape comes in a range of widths and colours. From geometric patterns and mandalas, you can create beautiful cut-and-paste landscapes out of them. Sky is the limit here!
