It’s time to discover some interesting ways to spruce up the most important room in your home. Living rooms are not only a place to entertain, but they’re also a room to showcase your unique decor style. A lot of thought should go into making your living room a space that people can enjoy and feel a sense of calm in. Wall decor is a huge aspect of what is needed to create that homey, cosy feeling.

When it comes to living room wall decor, there are endless possibilities. You can choose to go with a simple look, or you can add in some eclectic touches to make your space stand out. One of the easiest go-to ways to make your walls look elegant in no time is by mounting Displates onto your walls. They’re available in a wide range of designs from minimalistic posters to abstract posters if that’s what you’re going for.

If you’re looking for some additional inspiration, here are a few posts you might have missed: 

The Three Rules of Wall Décor

Here are three rules of thumb when it comes to deciding on the wall decor of your living room.

  1. Think about your overall style. What type of vibe do you want your living room to give off? Once you have an idea in mind, it will be easier to start narrowing down your options.
  2. Consider the size and shape of your walls. Not all decorations will look good on every wall; make sure you pick something that will complement the existing architecture of your home.
  3. Don’t be afraid to get creative! Add a few unexpected elements to your space, and you’ll be amazed at how quickly it comes to life.
