I am a pensive person, when I think, I lay on the floor and stare at my ceiling or I sit comfortable and stare at the walls. I cannot just have bare or white walls, they must communicate with my thoughts. With so many choices why keep the walls white?
In most homes it is customary to fill walls with a lot of pictures and photographs, or objects of interest, in some other homes walls are decorated in the minimalist style, meaning plain and empty. Once I had the urge to paint a picture on one of my interior doors and a painter friend tried to discourage me. Why paint a picture on a door and not on a conventional canvas? She said, but as you know the world turns around people who have different ideas and not around static people.
If you are an artist, would you consider paint your walls with your artwork? In the picture below (courtesy of Grandiroad), you can tell the picture behind the console is a large rug, but with a little imagination, that wall can be painted with any of your artwork and it will become an open gallery for anyone to enjoy it.

The other solution is to apply large print wallpaper, even digitally reproduced from your own photograph. The process is no more expensive than any wall finish treatments and the result is stunning.

The large print wallpaper will keep the room clean and interesting, with a lot of details to look at. No need to add accessories, keep it simple and uncluttered.
What is the room you can redo with this idea? Ciao,
