So how to do it?
The favorite technique of mine to decorate a large wall space in the lounge, is to use a large tapestry.
You can put a framed painting there, but this is quite overdone and can be often ignored. But a large tapestry has a presence about it that is unmistakable. There’s something totally unique and breathtaking about a large tapestry that makes you and your guests and loved ones really take notice and enjoy the living room space.
The reasons why tapestries are so effective on a large wall are because of its natural slight folds in the tapestry, it’s uniqueness, and the fact that it can transport you in space and time with a large tapestry. When you use a landscape with a scene of the woods or palace grounds, on a large wall, you feel as if you’re in the scene.
This backdrop effect is the secret to how a large tapestry makes your lounge room wall a real experience.
Paintings are often limited in size and find it difficult to achieve this effect. But a large tapestry has this breathtaking effect.
So how to decorate this large living room wall?
The 5 steps are:
- Select the wall that you want to decorate.
- Measure the width and height of the area of wall.
- Choose a tapestry that you like, which is a large size and creates the exact effect that you want.
- Select a tapestry rod that matches.
- Hang the tapestry, which is an easy process. The instructions are in the packaging of the rod, and involves putting the tapestry rod brackets into the wall, then the rod and the tapestry.
That’s it, then enjoy the tapestry and the effect that this creates in the lounge.
Many people ask which type of tapestry is best for large walls?
It all depends on the effect you want for yourself and friends and guests. You can use landscape scenes to make you feel as if you can step right into the scene. You can use 17th century palatial grounds and cityscapes to look as you can step right into that kind of scene. Or you can choose anything that you like, such as modern art, Lady and the Unicorn, or medieval scenes. The choice depends on the look and feel that you want. When you see the piece whether it is a palace grounds based on the work of the Beauvais tapestry production house in France, an unmistakable work of van Gogh, or a romantic piece by Boucher, you will notice it and the visual and emotional impact it has.
When you create this feeling in the room, your friends, guests and loved ones will see and notice the difference. It’s like creating a special atmosphere that will add to your experiences there. When they see the effect they will notice, appreciate it and comment.
