One way to add color, depth, and cheer to a room is by putting decorative art on the walls. This can be in the form of custom wallpaper, an artist tapestry, or painting patterns and images directly on the surface. If you are trying to plan some interior decorative art, consider the architectural space, your budget, and the mood or atmosphere you wish to create. Hiring an experienced painter may help you conceptualize.

Decorative Art Options

Purchasing artwork is always a nice way to add decor to empty walls. True art enthusiasts usually take time to find art pieces that speak to them, eliciting intense attraction or some special meaning. Collecting art can become a long process depending on your taste, and the cost can add up, especially if you have the artwork framed beautifully.

Decorative interior painting is an excellent option if you are working on a tight schedule and equally tight budget. Simple decorative art patterns can add depth to a room, making the space look brighter and bigger. A do-it-yourself project could save you a lot of money, and many resources are available to create attractive effects, such as stucco, stenciling, or sponge painting.

Art murals are also a form of decorative art that many choose inside homes, churches, museums, commercial buildings, and many public settings. Certain mural painting techniques use three-dimensional pictures to create optical illusions, such as an open sky on the ceiling. This type of imagery can make smaller rooms look more spacious, or create dramatic aesthetic appeal, like a heightened foyer entrance.
