Bold Accent Walls

If you can’t find the right piece of wall decor per your taste or you prefer a pop of color then a bold accent wall would be a great option.

A DIY accent wall can act as the living room wall decor since it can be painted a different color to give a room a bit of drama or to tie in another color.

The bold color with a bit of texture acts as the wall decorations for living room instead of art or other decor.

Texture is an easy way to decorate without committing to a bold color, but still looks interesting.

Picture Ledge for Large Living Room Wall

Sometimes a large wall can be hard to decorate so adding wood picture shelves can make a big difference.

Living room shelves allow you to add small decor items and plants to bring more interest and tie in your design theme.

Making sure to match the heights and space out the textured items to add symmetry to the living room shelves.

I am a big believer in the saying less is more because over decorating a space makes me feel anxious.

Every time I decorate a space, I step back to see how it makes me feel. If it feels to cluttered, I remove a couple of items or more things around.

I can easily mix and match other wall decor, throw pillows, and curtains without competing with these living room shelves.

Living Room Built-Ins with Shelving

Built-ins almost always look great in the living room and act as wall decorations themselves because they bring visual interest and height.

When decorating shelves, decide what you should splurge on for your living room makeover before buying all new items.
