For a home of unique artistry, a sophisticated wall accent can be a gorgeous focal point of a room and an intelligent way to tie colors and textures together. Just a touch of daring and desire to be artistic is all that’s needed. These 5 customizeable ideas should spark the inspiration needed to dress up your walls in beautiful, one-of-a-kind art.
Fabrics with beautiful prints and gorgeous design can be made into sophisticated displays. Using heirloom fabrics or bright modern patterns can add personality to any room. Collect unique fabrics from all over the globe when you travel, or use beautiful clothes handed down to you from previous generations.
For the more artistic, dying your own designs into cloth will give you that personal touch. A simple wooden frame, the correct length of fabric, and a simple method of securing the fabric is all that’s needed.
2. Stick Art
A clever way to push the boundaries of your colour scheme is to use a range of complimentary and contrasting colors. Make a wall hanging that can tie a room together with small and varying lengths of wood, that are painted and arranged within a frame. The frame can be bought from any frame shop, or easily assembled from simple lenghts of wood.
The smaller pieces can be collected from eating ice cream on sticks or can be cut or broken to length from a thin piece of plywood. It’s then a simple matter of painting each piece of wood and arranging them within the frame. A few dashes of strong glue will hold your work of art together.
Make a simple yet bold statement with beautiful empty frames. Simply select a myriad of shapes in colors that make a statement . A bit of experimentation may be in order, to decide on the placement of each frame.
Then it’s simply a matter of hanging them up, and stepping back to admire the results. Gorgeous frames can be bought brand new, or carefully selected and collected from antique stores, rummage sales and second hand stores.
4. Written Accent Wall
An undeniably unique way to dress up an accent wall, choose a meaningful sentence to have made into a stencil in a beautiful font, and then use the stencil to paint this beautiful idea onto the walls. For those who wish to go even further, a page from their favourite book may be a meaningful way to add personality to a room. What better way is there to remind yourself of what’s important, than to read the writing on the wall?
Frame an area by painting a silhouette in the right spot. This idea allows for your imagination to go wild. Any number of of tribal tattoo designs, iconic images, or simple black and white designs can be used, and will add a one-of-a-kind look to a plain white wall.
The design can be sketched on the wall in free-hand with pencil before being painted. Or, a stencil can be made out of cardboard beforehand, to make the painting easier.
Whichever you choose, these ideas are sure to have sparked creative ways for you to decorate your walls.
