How to Choose Wall Decor for Living Room
Choosing the perfect wall decor for your living space really depends on several different things, and here they are :
Matching Current Decor Style
If you want to create a visually uniform space, you need to keep your wall decor style in line with the entire living room decor. But sometimes, it’s ok to slightly going off track to avoid boring and monotonous spaces. For example, adding some bohemian style wall hanging items in a contemporary style living room can bring a bit of freshness and chic vibe into the space.
Avoid Overpowering your Walls
For a plain, empty wall, than you can add some different wall decor to bring those wall feel alive. But, if there are some other elements already on those wall such as some millwork trim or wallpapers, one piece of art could be more than enough, as using too much will make the wall looks cramped.
We are really loved any oversize wall decor, especially to visually enhance any large empty wall. Things such as huge wall art, large wall mirror or giant wall clock are some great example that you can use not only to decorate those large wall, but also great to be a main focal point for your living space.

Or, if your living room use carpet flooring, replace it with something that had more glossy and reflections effects such as tiles or laminate floors.
