5 art solutions for large walls

I had a reader reach out asking for ideas for decorating and filling up large bare walls. I love being able to help readers come up with solutions, so let's tackle this subject shall we?

Sometimes filling up a big wall doesn't even have to be artwork related. You can fill up a portion of a large wall space with something tall and vertical such as a plant or a piece of furniture as Emily Henderson did here.

1- CLEVER FURNITURE & PLANT PLACEMENT


2- LARGE SCALE FURNITURE

Or choose a large piece of furniture to fill up a big blank space. 




3- PICTURE LEDGES OR SHELVES

Consider picture ledges to prop all your artwork up. It makes it fun to swap things out often during holidays, etc. Photo source from here. 


4- ADD PIECES WITH DIMENSION

Hang an architectural piece, or something with a lot of dimension. I love using JuJu hats for these applications. Photo source.  

We have one hanging over our bed which you can see here.


5- CREATE A GALLERY WALL

Gallery walls are a great way to fill up a big wall and make an impact. You can go with all black and white photos in black frames for a simple look, or go for a more eclectic look with a mix of frames, colors, and materials. 

In our living room I made a clean grid using frames just like these. 

I actually have a gallery wall Pinterest board here if you'd like to take a peek.




Hopefully this helps if you are in the same dilemma on trying to fill up wall space.
I hope you are having a great day!

xoxo
