Whether you are living in a small New York apartment or a multi-floor townhouse, I always find one of the biggest issues that friends and clients come to me with is that they are somewhat challenged by those big, blank walls in their homes. As an interior design firm, the way we tackle it depends on the scheme and style in the homes.
If your interior design schemes is rather eclectic and is rich in patterns, colors and textures, then it’s a smart design decision to keep them empty to create the needed visual contrast, and give your eye a place to rest in the space. In this case, the trick is knowing which walls to fill, and which to keep clean. But if your style is more simplistic or neutral, then these walls can seem under-dressed.
In this case, those empty walls have some big potentials—and few additions can add visual intrigue, help showcase your design preferences and taste, and be the finishing detail that makes your home feel cohesive and complete.
You can personalize your walls so that you are surrounded by the things you enjoy.
However, sprucing up a blank wall needs a bit of planning as there are many different ways to do so; it is about creating a balanced composition to give life and add personality to the space.
In today’s blog post we ‘ll reveal how we revamp these empty spots and bring them to life with some easy and simple steps.
STEP ONE: ADD AN ANCHOR PIECE.
Add an eye-catching piece of art. This unexpected large addition will quickly fill up an empty spot and become the main focal point in the vignette. Opt for a bold piece that reflects your personality and adds character to your interiors.
STEP TWO: ADD A LIGHT SOURCE.
Place a wall washer sconce to illuminate the art and the corner with some mood lighting for a more glamorous flair.
STEP THREE: ADD A SEATING OPTION.
Depending on the space you have you can add an ottoman, bench or an armchair. Opt for a bold, architectural piece for a more elevated and unusual look.
STEP FOUR: ADD A SIDE TABLE.
Pair it with a sleek drink table for a more practical and cozy vignette, where you can have your morning coffee or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening.
STEP FIVE: ADD THE NATURE ELEMENT.
Complete the look with greenery, It is a great way to add height, and a pop of color with a green plant, for a more inviting and vivid nook.
STEP SIX: FINISH IT UP WITH A RUG.
Ground the grouping by placing a rug. It adds texture and warmth and gives the setup a more collected and well-balanced feel.
