A blank canvas, or a blank wall can feel very intimidating, to say the least. When faced with a “table rasa”, or an empty slate, very few of us can come up with the perfect idea off the top of our heads. We need some inspiration and maybe a bit of interior decorator guidance. This is where Treasurecombers.net can be the one you turn to for great ideas to fill a blank wall space and trust it will turn out spectacularly!
A belated Happy Fourth of July to everyone, and to commemorate our nation’s birthday, here is the perfect vintage solution for an empty wall that needs some personality. This fabulous piece of Americana in sculpted metal creates a wonderful sense of patriotism for our nation’s history and looks stunning on any wall that needs some pop! The famous artist, Japser Johns is well known for his charming paintings of the American flag on wood and canvas. This piece of American folk art, albeit forged of metal, captures the same sense of history that Johns’ contemporary works are known for.
One way I like decorate an empty wall is with family photos. I love this wrought iron metal frame holder. It’s perfect for the family tree photos and a charming and easy way to display your family as a work of art.
Of course, we all tend to forget that our kitchens need art too! Here is a lovely piece that would add style to any dining or kitchen area. This would even look great in a hall or entry way.
This elegant oil painting from Treasurecombers.net could grace the mantel over a fireplace for a special effect. The delicious somber colors evoke the name of the painting, “Contemplation”. A large wall in a great room or even a stairwell would accommodate this lovely work.
A plaque in metal or carved wood can really add a sense of drama. Here are two plaques that would liven up any unused wall space and turn it into a great focal point for over a console or maybe even over a bed.
Some decorator tips for hanging paintings in the living room; make sure the paintings are not placed too high on the wall. Paintings should be at eye height when standing, and remember that you will be sitting in this room and a painting hung too high on the wall will look out of place.
If you are hanging a painting over a sofa, the rule of thumb is that painting should be two thirds the length of the sofa. For example, a nine foot long sofa should have a six foot long painting hung in the center of the sofa and a hand’s width above the back edge.
