They are surely pleasing to the eyes. So if your walls are bare, and in need of some tender lovin’ care, here are a 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!
Go ahead and explore, and then set free your imagination and creativity, which will breathe life into your drab and lifeless walls.
Metal wall hangings are the easiest and non-messiest way to decorate your walls, and they come in a 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 a 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 the walls are an amazing way to bring some greenery inside your house, without cluttering your floor. They look great, and you can try putting in different flowers like button roses, which come in many vibrant colors. You can also mix and match the shades to either go with your wall paint or contrast with it. There are no restrictions to your creativity here, and you can try clay pots, or glass or plastic pots, in a holder, hung individually, or in a small group, with real flowering plants or plastic ones, or simply put up stark white vases in a group against some darkly painted background.
Got plates, old china that you don’t want to use anymore? Here is one cool living room wall art idea 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. Gather all the plates that are left from old sets that you either don’t use, or if only one plate is left after all the rest have broken. In fact, this is one place where mixing and matching will probably yield the best results! A great idea to liven up a dull wall with variety and color. Try light colored plates against a dark background and vice-versa, and enjoy the effects.
Photographs, instant shots, frames, etc., are a 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. Just find colored stones and fix them on your walls with a suitable adhesive, and voila, you have a really pretty stone frame ready!
