The perfect gallery wall

Everybody has faced the challenge of the blank wall when they start decorating their homes for the first time. It can become an eyesore in an otherwise impeccably decorated home. But a blank presents a great opportunity to create a unique centrepiece.

Painted stripes on walls

In most homes, there will be something that is called the ‘picture wall.’ If you have enough photos to do this, there are a few ways you can make it more interesting. Firstly, vary the frames that you use, but stick with a theme. This is a simple step you can take to making the wall look more dynamic, especially if it’s a neutral colour. Pick a colour scheme for your frames (this should match the colour scheme of the room).  

If you don’t want to put up family photos, you can opt for a collection of artwork and create a gallery wall. Pick up a scenery, a still life, a portrait, a random quote—just about anything that speaks to you.  
On a wall that has windows, a large statement piece of art can look out of place and overbearing, but on a blank wall it has the perfect canvas to shine. Textile art designers are usually willing to create custom pieces that are designed to meet to your preferences.

Painting the wall is another option to make it more interesting. You could even use stencils to create easy wall art. Once you get your creative juices flowing, you’ll wish you had more blank walls to decorate.
