Creative Wall Inspiration

Good day! I mentioned in an
earlier post
, I’ve signed my lease renewal for another year in my current apartment. This will be my third year in the space. I love my apartment, it gets great natural light, it has an open kitchen, my bedroom has huge windows that overlook the Freedom Tower, it’s a green building so the water is all filtered and our electric bill is like $20 (seriously, so cheap!) and I won’t ever find a better view of sunsets over the Hudson river. All that said, I need to freshen up my decor and make the space feel new again. I’m starting with my walls. Here are some inspiring ideas that have me excited to decorate again…

creative-wall-inspiration-succulents

Succulent wall art. This could work in my place since I get a lot of light!

creative-wall-inspiration-book-shelves

Book shelves. Easy enough to do in a rental space. I love the idea of shelves as storage, and the books as decor.

creative-wall-inspiration-ladder-lights

Just give me white lights on a rustic ladder. Please. Now.

creative-wall-inspiration-corner-frames

Art on art on art on a corner.

creative-wall-inspiration-ceramics

Love these ceramic flowers grouped together to add texture and dimension to a wall.

creative-wall-inspiration-pantone-chips

These are pantone chips, people. PANTONE. CHIPS. Love the vibrancy and texture it creates.

creative-wall-inspiration-stikwood

My new obsession, Stikwood. This would be forbidden to do in a rental, but I’m trying to convince Aczeb to let me use these wall veneers all over his condo. Wood paneling made easy. “Plan. Peel. Stik.”

creative-wall-inspiration-pixel-art

Pixel art! Live life one pixel at a time.

creative-wall-inspiration-photo-mural-cityscape

Cityscape photo mural. I love how it feels like the table is in a cafe located on top of the city.

creative-wall-inspiration-instagrams

Photo collage. Put all those Instagram shots to good use.

creative-wall-inspiration-black-white-photography

Wall of oversized black and white photography. Wowsa.

creative-wall-inspiration-animal-heads

Animals heads as wall vase art. The more fur babies the better.

creative-wall-inspiration-plate-art

Plate art. Interesting for a kitchen or dining area. Would be fun to find all the pretty plates too.

creative-wall-inspiration-creative-shelving

Shelving, at different heights. I like this because it’s easy to change things up and update as you please.

creative-wall-inspiration-wall-molding-painted-gold

I don’t have wall molding, but if I did…I love the idea of painting the molding details gold. #ilovegold

creative-wall-inspiration-framed-fabric

Framed fabric! Find complimentary patterns and colors and create a gallery.

creative-wall-inspiration-wall-moldings

Wall molding. Again, not for my rental…but a girl can dream. This would be painstaking to DIY, I imagine. But if I came home to this everyday? I would sleep on the stairs.

creative-wall-inspiration-colored-pencil-displays

This wall decor is made from colored pencils. JEEZ, people are dang creative out there.

creative-wall-inspiration-striped-accent-wall

Striped accent wall. I would go dizzy if the entire room was striped, but I really like how this area designates the corner of the room as an office space.

creative-wall-inspiration-garland

Garland! OK, you know how much I adore garland.

creative-wall-inspiration-painted-mirrors

Mirrored wall. Amazed at the extra light and sophistication this decor trick creates.

creative-wall-inspiration-painted-mountain-mural

Hand-painted mountain mural. Camping light. You might need to replace your bed with a tent. Just saying. This. Is. So. Peaceful.

I am a lifelong New Yorker who recently swapped the subway for the California sunshine. I've learned the only way out is through--and tough stuff makes you a whole lot stronger. Currently hooked on planning & organization, kombucha, succulents and my labradoodle child. You can usually find me in the #sisoostudio, working on my latest DIY project, designing gemstone & crystal jewelry, daydreaming about one day operating a flower farm, and spreading the Finnish spirit of sisu everywhere I go.
