Looking for large wall decor ideas for a living room? With an expanse of blank wall staring back at you, it’s nearly impossible to dream up ways for a design solution. The possibilities are endless, and because of that, it’s difficult to narrow down your decorating options. We thought we’d suggest 10 gorgeous, new ideas to fill that blank wall!
1. Large Wall Decor Ideas for the Living Room – Mirror & Place to Sit
Especially in a living room entryway, this large wall decor is a great idea to fill up some space. It’s an elegant focal point near a front door, but it’s also functional. Guests can lay their coats on the upholstered bench, and it’s a great spot to slip on your shoes before leaving the house. It’s also just so elegant!
2. Great Space Filling Idea – Oversize Wall Clock
Our large decor Chateau Betton Wall Clock in white looks striking against a navy wall. At 36″ wide, this clock is a great way to make a lot of design impact on a wall that just seems never ending!
3. Our Grand Sized Wall Sconces – the Right Size Statement
Our Valletta Wall Sconce is nearly 3 feet tall, which means it has a lot of look and can make a dramatic statement on a blank wall. We love the patina-ed finish and the elegant gilding on the candle arms. Our favorite way to use this piece? In pairs on either side of a mantle piece!
4. And Paintings in a Series – Go for the Grand Look
Really wanting to create wall drama but don’t know where to start? May we suggest a series of paintings running down your entryway? Actually, no matter what room it’s in, we love the way a grouping of paintings immediately draws the eye to create impact.
5. Or Painting & Wall Hooks – Function and Design!
Function is super important, especially in a hardworking space like an entryway. But, we always want to bring in a little personality too. In this space we paired a impressionistic painting of boat with a set of wall hooks to create a pretty space that also works hard for you and your family!
6. Drapery Panels – Wall Style Remembered
We often forget about drapery panels when we’re thinking about filling wall space in our homes, but once your curtains are up, you’ll notice things feel far less bare! We suggest hanging your drapery rod brackets 3-6 inches out from your window moulding to make your windows appear wider, but you’ll see the added benefit of filling up wall space.
7. Message Boards – Create and Recreate!
You may have noticed how much we love the message board, and it’s true. We use them in nearly every room, but that’s just because they’re so practical! They’re like chameleons, changing to blend in with the decor around them. Simply switch out whatever you tack up there for a totally new look. Here we used a set of 8 botanical prints, all tacked to our Burlap Message Board as a pretty grouping over a sofa.
8. Wall Shelving & Mirrors Work Together
Don’t forget that walls aren’t just for hanging paintings and photographs. We love using this vertical space for something functional, like shelving. A wall-mounted shelf with gilded brackets and crisp, white shelves takes design friendly wall storage to an elegant space that works in a powder room, home office, dressing area, or formal living room.
9. A Dramatic Mirror Does it All
When filling a wall consider scale. Miles Redd’s Golightly Mirror has a grand scale, turning a plain expanse of wall into a dramatic focal point. One large piece keeps things clean and uncluttered but is still large enough to carry the entire wall.
10. Home Office Wall Pockets – Working Style!
We mentioned how much we love using wall space to add function to a room, and wall pockets are a great way to do that. Labels make it easy to keep things neat and tidy, and we all know how easy it is for paper to get out of hand!
