Simplicity with Your Home Wall Decor
I can still picture my roommate as she lay stretched out on the floor, rummaging through a pile of Martha Stewart magazines. It was our mutual friend's birthday and we preferred to deliver our own personalized birthday gifts. My roommate sat on the floor, cutting out various chunks of pages from the magazines. After observing her assorted scraps, she mixed and matched the paper in what formed a fitting and creative design. She neatly wrapped the gift in her personalized wrapping paper.
In a hurry, I rushed to the nearest gift shop and purchased some pink and yellow wrapping, and then splurged on the additional decorations, including ribbons, a matching birthday card and a multi-colored bow to top it off.
In comparing the two gift appearances, we had very distinct tastes. My roommate's presentation was well-thought of, personalized and simple. My gift looked more like a store display flaunting the loudest and most colorful wrapping offered. I realized then that I had executed decoration overkill on my gift wrap appearance in comparison to that of my roommate's.
Simplicity Stands Out
I learned the hard way that simplicity is distinct and better. My roommate's present was different, and it was clear that our mutual friend enjoyed her gift more than the others which were given that day. The same principle applies to your home wall décor. As you decorate, be sure to avoid what I like to call 'the plague of generics.' The following interior decorating ideas will help you keep simplicity in mind.
Home wall decor
Wall Decor is anything that you would display on the walls within your own home. Wall decor can range from traditional paintings, to engravings and woodcuts or to more shapely objects such as small indoor water fountains. Also popular, are the variable designs encased in glass and framed for display. Pressed flowers presented in this manner are especially popular, as the variation of color and design is flexible and assists in creating a relaxed and inviting atmosphere.
Frames of course, are in general simple, but they provide the aura of a picture, and thus can change the entire look of your home. Choose frames which provide the sense of completion for a picture. If you are distracted by a frame, choose another one. A frame is the aura of a picture, not the art.
The products of nature are naturally simple, and therefore some of the most popular forms of wall décor. Indoor gardening also creates the healthy, robust atmosphere that so many families crave. Displaying some of natures' beautiful outside creations to the home will bring a picturesque view along the walls of your home.
