Creative Wall Decorating Ideas

Have you ever had a conversation with the big blank wall in your room?

Everyone has one.  A big, blank, empty, design-challenged space.

Waiting for inspiration.

Waiting for ideas to decorate all that big empty overwhelming blankness.  

Well....wait no more.  

Today is the day.  The beginning of a whole new conversation.

Let's talk walls!

Creative Wall Decorating Ideas with Photos

1.  Wall to wall pictures

One picture is fun.

Ten pictures are pretty.

But dozens and dozens of pictures?  That is amazing.  

Group decorative photo frames on a wooden ledge to maximize impact. Mix silver and wood and even twig picture frames to create this look.


Decorating a Blank Wall with Mirrors

2.  Mirror mirror on the wall

Nothing makes a wall shine more than a grouping of designer mirrors.

Mix gold mirrors with silver mirrors with starburst mirrors with round mirrors with convex mirrors.

Shiny. Matte.  Sparkly.  Bold. Simple.

Any mirror works when grouped together.  

Unusual Wall Decorating Ideas

3. Frame the unusual

Think outside the box.  Who would have ever thought that a bicycle could make amazing wall art.

Frame a number.  Or a piece of architectural salvage.  

Or an exit sign.  Or a clock. Or a thermometer.

If you can hang it on the wall, you can frame it!

Wall Decorating Ideas with Plates

4.  Plate it up

Plates are a fun way to fill up a blank wall.

Mix it up. Simple white plates with pops of gray or black.

Like color? Bring the sunshine in with a wall of color full of colorful dinnerware in a variety of patterns, sizes and textures.


The options for decorating a blank wall are endless.

It's all about you and your home and your design style.

What are you waiting for....let's get talking!   (And for more blank wall inspiration, take a peek at how I creatively decorated a blank wall in my own home!)
