If you like to cover every inch of the wall then wallpaper is the perfect choice. This is good if your walls are no longer attractive to look at and the paints has start to peel off. You can forgo the painting job by just covering the dilapidated paint with wallpaper.


Even if the walls are newly painted they can still look dull and empty. Instead of adding cabinets or attaching expensive decorative items, you can break the monotony by placing ornamental stickers. This is not only quick, but it is the cheapest option, as well. Above all, it is easy to do.

Wall Mural

If you know someone with excellent skills then stop looking for home decors, instead go for wall murals. By definition, a wall mural is a painting job done directly on the wall. This may be a bit costly on your part, but will definitely give your home a unique ambiance.

I like all your ideas. I particularly like that gray wall and couch with the color in the painting. That gray for the wall and couch is such a great idea! I wouldn't have thought of that. It allows the art on the wall to really shine and minimizes the impact of the couch.

I love that family collection. I'm doing some decorating in my home now. I have just the place for that.

Hi Evelyn, thanks for visiting. I just read your bed and breakfast article, it looks like a great place to stay. I'm glad the article was helpful.

My bed and breakfast in Vermont was built in 1840 so I find that more modern art styles don't go very well with the architecture. I have gone with a more eclectic style of wall decoration. My walls are painted a solid color in order to provide a background for the artwork I have chosen. Many of the paintings on the walls were painted by my grandmother, a local artist. But I am constantly looking for new items to add to the various rooms. I love the idea of the metal plates shown in your introduction. I wonder if I could find a space to include something similar. Thank you so much for writing this article. It is giving me new ideas for redecorating.

Wow, that sounds absolutely amazing. What a great idea. Perhaps you can recreate what you had before, just on a smaller scale somewhere in your home and recapture some of those memories.

I had a photo wall for years...350 frames of all different sizes and textures snugged up close to each other. All family pictures from special days, occasions, funny expressions, trips, and old ancestors. It was the showcase of my home but I didn't realize it until after dismantling and building a huge wall unit in its place. I miss it and so does everyone that comes through my door and immediately asks what happened to it!
