Living room wall decorations provide a great focal point for any design element or decor. Most living room wall decorations are based off of the color of carpeting, color of the walls and overall design theme of the entire house. From contemporary to country, implementing living room wall decor to a room will add a sense of style and purpose.
Living room wall decorations can be used to highlight plain walls by adding a design element that will create contrast and draw the eye in. Wall decorations are a way to display family photos and awards alongside iron or metal sconces filled with decorative candles. When placed in a living room, one can use wall decorations to accent furniture and curtains to complement the room's style. Living room wall decorations can be secured to the wall with a sticky adhesive; for metal accents, small tack nails can be hammered in for support.
Some of the different types of living room wall decorations include mirrors, candle holders, clocks, baskets, floral wreaths, floral swags, plates on a plate rack, shelves, bookshelves and decorative arts and prints. Running water wall fountains are becoming a popular wall decoration, as they can provide the tranquil sound of running water and with the addition of an accent light a wall fountain can be enjoyed during the day and night. Most items are made out of lightweight metal or wood so that they can easily be hung on the wall without placing pressure on the underlying studs.
Some of the features of living room wall decorations may include a mirror selection with sconces for holding candles. For a more country style living room, a grape vine wreath with yellow flowers and cranberries highlighted with a gingham ribbon could hang from a wall near a cozy chair. Bookshelves attached to the wall can contain antique or vintage styled books combined with antique teacups and small porcelain dolls to create a vintage look on the living room wall. For the basket lover, small tack nails could be scattered along the wall and collectible Longaberger baskets can be placed on the wall with small silk floral arrangements inside--making it a great way to display a large collection of baskets. Black-and-white photography is also a popular wall decoration, and photos of New York and Paris and other abstract prints can add design flair to the room.
The overall size of a living room decoration can vary per the size of the wall. Large copper wall art sconces that twist and bend into a design can be several feet in circumference and may take up one entire wall. A large collection of family pictures in a variety of pewter picture frames can be scattered on a main wall in the living room. Decorative lanterns or lights that accent walls are great in small hallways or on walls between rooms for lighted decorating flair.
The overall effect of having living room decorations on display is to be able to express a sense of style in one's living space. Mixing and matching designs and items can give a room character. Finding ways to display one's favorite decor items by mixing and matching creates a one-of-a-kind look.
