5 Ways You Can Fill Up Those Blank Walls

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design and Decorating

Tired of staring at your stark and empty walls? Expansive, windowless walls are the perfect canvas for a creative mind so you don’t want to waste the space. Artwork isn’t the only way you can add some style to your bland walls. Here are some lively wall decor ideas you can use in any room of the house.

Ceiling Medallions
If you’re searching for a unique way to embellish your walls consider using ceiling medallions as wall art. You can find ceiling medallions at most home improvement stores. Although they are inexpensive they make for expensive looking wall art especially when they have painted a similar shade of the hues that you’re using within the space. Ceiling medallions are lightweight and they can be applied to the wall with temporary adhesive.

Book Covers
What are your favorite titles? Well, you can implement them into your decor with this creative idea. Using a craft knife you can remove the pages and hang them flat against the wall. You can use an upholstery nail to attach them to the wall.

Block Numbers
What dates have a special number for your family? Perhaps it’s a birthday or an anniversary. You can hang block numbers in a variety of sizes and colors on the wall. From metal to plastic blocks, try and mix up the finishes. Anchor the arrangement around a shelf or flat piece of furniture.

Cutting Boards
What about the kitchen? Turn your cutting board and platters into an artwork by hanging them on the wall. They can be attached to the wall with super glue or by hanging them on hooks. Arrange them so that they are mixed and matched. Use a variety of wood stains and finishes to accentuate the look. You can even add plates to the mix.

Fabric Artwork
You can really make it chic by using a fun or pretty pattern as artwork. Play around with textures and colors. You can frame the fabric or have it suspended against the wall. Search for vintage goods or handmade pieces.

Dramatic Artwork
Of course, you can use traditional artwork to dress up your walls. However, for a modern spin opt for super oversized pieces that will immediately capture the eyes of guests.

Five Ways You Can Bring the Outdoors Inside

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design and Decorating

Decorating with natural elements by bringing a hint of the outdoors into your home can bring nature inside. If you are nature-starved, what are some easy ways you can implement nature into your home’s decor?

  1. Faux Fireplace
    Love looking at a campfire? Well, you can get the same look anytime you desire by purchasing a faux fireplace. Faux indoor fireplaces look so realistic and they even sound similar to the sound of a campfire.

  2. Decorate with “greenery”
    Of course, the most obvious way to bring nature indoors is to bring in some plants. Plants can brighten any space. When incorporating greenery into your design scheme look for ways to steer clear of the traditional flower in the vase thing. Mix it up by using a variety of pots in your plant area. You can even opt out of using flower pots and instead hang them on the wall using plant hangers.

  3. Natural Wood Furnishing
    Decorating with natural wood furnishing is a great way to create a rustic feel. Wood furniture is super durable and with great craftsmanship, it can be formed into all kinds of beautiful designs. You can add wood furniture sparingly. Perhaps a wood finished rocking chair in the living room or a wooden coffee table. A sleek, wood finished headboard adds a bit of outdoors to your bedroom.

  4. Buy a grass rug
    You can easily purchase an artificial rug that simulates the look of grass from popular furniture companies. It can serve as a focal point for your living room or the man cave. The grass can withstand foot traffic. It’s available in a variety of sizes.

  5. Constellation Projection Lamp
    Enjoy staring up at the stars at night? Well, you can do so right from the comfort of your bed. A constellation projector lamp allows you to easily project the beautiful heavens on your walls and ceilings.

Be imaginative when searching for ways you can make your home reflect your love for nature. Use different colors, textures, and patterns that are inspired by nature to energize a space.
