Sometimes you need to stare at a blank wall, either in your house or somewhere else. But blank walls in your house is a big problem: design-less homes tend to bore you out. Want some designs that would turn heads? Try out these beautiful wall art decoration projects and turn your boring walls into a work of art.
1Gold Polka Dot Wall
This gold polka dot wall decoration is perfect for personal spaces and small home offices. This design is popular in the 70s and is now making a comeback thanks to the resurgence of 70s fashion. You can opt for a smaller dot if you want because this wall decoration uses circles as large as a plate: don’t worry, it would look perfect later. Also, use glossy paper for a better effect.
2Rustic Framed Map
Got an old map you like to preserve and make it last almost forever? Here’s a great wall decoration idea you can consider. Your old map deserves to be hanged on the wall in a frame; get some wood frames (be sure to pick the aged variant to compliment the old map) and add some metal brackets on the corners for that wonderful industrial look.
Instagram is probably one of the best social networking sites you’ve ever tried. Admit it, you’ve been addicted to it: posting selfies, vacation photos, and the best part: filters!
