Expand your decorating options to fill empty walls with something other than a picture or painting. Wall art creates strong focal points and dynamic textures, unifying disparate room colors into a cohesive whole. Pieces with straight, clean lines and symmetrical designs work best in homes with modern and minimalist styles. Consider metallic wall art to contrast wood decor and soft fabrics. Wood art offers fresh, organic shapes with eye-catching lines. Choose that material to accentuate rustic living rooms or to bring an outdoor element into an urban-chic space. Wall mirrors reflect existing light and create the illusion of a bigger room. Tealights, votives or electric candles in wall holders provide warm ambiance and are useful in places with limited surface area. For backyard and patio spaces, look for items that are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

This room is very similar to the previous one in that it’s simple. Both the walls and comforter are white, as is the carpet. However, on the wall, there are some unique pieces of art. The first one is an exposed human. Their rear end is exposed for the world to see. The piece of art on the other side seems to be a bunch of different patterns and writings put together into one. I really like how simple, but cool, the room is overall.

The majority of this room is pretty simple. There’s plain white paint on the walls with a white comforter and brown designs. However, behind the bed, we see some funky wall art strung across that entire side. It looks to be made from metal or wood. The design is simply overlapping squares, but it really brings a sense of individuality into the room. It’s definitely quite unique and a great way to add a little touch of pizzazz to a seemingly boring room.


Artwork can make or break the overall look of a room, so it's important to choose the right piece! You've got many factors to consider when choosing your new wall art: should it be silver and gray or vibrant and multicolor? Wooden or metal? Matte or shiny? By taking these options into account—and doing a thorough survey of the other decorations in the space—you're one step closer to finding that pivotal piece!
