In a Living Room, the sofa set is most likely the focal point. That inevitably also brings the wall above the couch into attention. Now Decorating an entire wall can be a daunting task, but with a few creative ideas we can boost that wall and bring it to life.
Think Big, Hang Big: Choose a single piece of art which is gigantic in size. Make sure when you hang it on the wall, the bottom edge of the frame is around8-10inches above the sofa. Choose from a wide range of images and works of art. And, stop not till you have that perfect piece of art up on your wall.
Magic of Three: If you like a more theatrical color palette, mix in a bold art with a red or black hue to give your wall a dramatic look. Display a series of 3 piece art work. It is a great way to bid farewell to that dull empty wall.
A Wall For Books: Are you a Bibliophile? You’ll agree when I say that there is no better sight than that of an wall covered with books. Mark the central area and place your couch right in front of a well-stocked bookshelf. Get hold of a cuppa and a good book and make yourself comfortable on that couch.
Gallery Wall: An idea which is rapidly gaining popularity is the gallery wall. They are perfect to create a collage of various art works,photographs,wall hangings and mirrors in frames of different sizes. There are no set patterns to it’s alignment. Mix, match and watch the uneven display enjoy the limelight.
Decorated Mantel: Gone are the days when mantels were meant only for over the fireplace. For a unique living room focal point, secure a mantel just above your sofa and decorate it with candles and small plants.
