Have you ever thought of the blank walls at home as canvases waiting for your caress to come alive? While symmetry has been replaced by asymmetry when it comes to home décor, plain walls have been replaced by textured ones and become one of the most popular home decorating ideas around the world. How about these texture ideas that will make your walls brim with life and friends swell with envy!
Grunge walls are in vogue or what! From boardrooms to bedrooms, people are going berserk with the grunge look. There are a number of ways grunge walls add to the charm of any room. Colour-block a grunge wall with photos in chunky same-coloured frames as the wall or go monochrome with a plethora of A4 sized black-white family-friend photos on it. To add another dimension to the wall, have it coloured in a metallic tone and leave it by itself to impart a royal glow to the room.
Have you heard of painter’s tape? Ask your painter about it if you haven’t and you’ll be in for a pleasant surprise. Working around with painter’s tape is a fairly simple task if an experienced professional such as your painter takes up the job. Choose a pattern with painter’s tape from a wall décor catalogue and have your painter replicate it! Lo, you’ll soon have a new room to lounge in!
Graining is one of the most economical and easily doable wall textures that you can get done if budget and time are constraints. The key to bring alive a simply grained wall is to keep it minimal and fix just a television set against it or an antique wooden bar counter in one of its corners. Photo frames or wall decals may not be a good idea against grained walls because graining itself is quite heavy on texture and adds weight by itself.
How about adding a touch of rustic to the walls? Have them textured like bricks fresh out of the oven and colour them as you like. If you’re the vacay-in-Santorini type then colour the textured bricks milky white, if you’re a sucker for Indian rustics then go for sunshine orange or if you’re one of those creative people then go funky multi-coloured!
Here are a few décors that look wonderful against brick textured walls.
- Driftwood shelves
- Monotone photo frames
- Chest of drawers
- Strings of rice lights
It’s time for the plain, boring wall paint to get a makeover into a contemporary yet royal dream! Punch a contemporary colour such as turquoise blue or shocking fuchsia with intricately textured embroidery patterns on the wall and you’ll immediately impart an aristocratic feel to the room. However, if it’s an intricate embroidery that you’re getting on your wall, then it’s best to leave it at that. Avoid other wall pieces such as photo frames, masks, ornamental lights, or wall hangings so that the entire focus is on the beautiful hard work and not on the decorative items on the wall.
