Decorating Walls

Stuck for ideas on how to decorate walls in your home? New a few simple tricks for your entry and other rooms? Well, here are a couple ideas that might solve the dilemma.

Your entry is one of the most important areas of your home because it sets the stage for the entire home. It is usually the first area a visitor sees. Often homeowners neglect this area of the home, preferring to concentrate their decorating flair in other parts of the house. But having a welcoming, inviting, warm and appealing entry is very important and should not be neglected.

An easy way to make your entry look spectacular and much, much larger (as many homes have small, almost unnoticeable entrys) is to add floor to ceiling mirrors. Not only will it make the space look twice as big as it actually is, it will add an element of glamour and polish that one can't get in any other way. See if you can then add a console table and a lovely arrangement of fresh cut flowers. Phenomenal!

Don't be afraid of color. Especially if your home is more contemporary. Try painting each wall a different coordinating color. Notice I wrote "coordinating". The colors must feel and look good together for this to work and they should reflect the general palette in the room established by the furniture and accessories already present.

My only caution here is that you want to make sure the room doesn't appear too "pieced up". Notice in this picture that the two walls are the same color, but the kitchen cabinets are a different color. Be sure to wrap each color around the room in some manner so that the space remains balanced.
