At last, the time of snowfall, twinkling lights, and holiday cheer has arrived in Waterloo Region. With the temperatures finally plummeting, it’s likely most of us will choose to stay in the comfort and warmth of our homes rather than brave the winter wonderland outside. With so much time being spent indoors, now’s a great time to start perfecting your home decor in preparation for the fast-approaching new year. Walls; We all have them, but are we all using them to their full potential?
When one thinks of wall decor, it’s likely paintings and photos that come to mind. However, the possibilities are so much more and can be tailored to each individual's (or family’s) sense of style. DIY possibilities are endless on resources such as Pinterest and Instagram, and there truly are so many out-of-the-box options. For example, stacking milk crates can serve as both rustic decor as well as storage space. Making a mural statement wall can be both fun and unique, whether you choose to go all in and paint it or simply use paint markers for simple designs.
For those of us who are less crafty, there are many options as well! Temporary wallpaper is great for renters and those who just want to try out something new, with so many options online on sites such as Amazon. If you are a fan of the ease of simply hanging up picture frames, try to do a gallery-style wall to fill up space and add an eclectic vibe. Adding mirrors to a photo wall is a great way to add dimension and a sense of mystique to an otherwise simple wall. The possibilities are truly endless!
