How to decorate huge dining room/living room wall


We want to decorate a huge wall in our house. This wall is part of the dining room and the living room. Would you treat it as one wall or two rooms? What type of art would you hang on it where would you put it?

Is that the kitchen in the foreground? I would paint it all the same
color, I don't see any other choice for you. Is that wall an outside wall?

As far as the art is concerned, it's difficult to recommend art.
Is there going to be any furniture on that wall? What do the other
walls that flank that big wall look like? Can you post more pic's?

How about some built-in bookcases and/or cabinets?

My son's house is fully decorated according to his wife and he didn't have room for these culls he was ashamed of so he left them at my house. I'll check with him to see if you could have these to get you started. Although a big bull elk would look good centered on that wall.

This is a really good idea. I would put some sort of shelving in the middle of the wall to break it into two separate spaces. That way you can hang art above the couch (I see you have some prints propped on the back of it) and hang something else on the left side of the wall - but something that compliments the decor on the den side.

You don't have to go with full on built-ins (they can be expensive)....a few nice quality bookshelves anchored to the wall would work.

Paint the wall with the color matched to your living room furniture. You can also use some texture on this. Then choose beautiful wall hangings or artistic scenery to place it on the wall. Treat the wall as one or make partition and choose the wall hangings according to the area. Like some Foody pictures of your dining space and modern art for the living room . This can give you two different flavors at the same wall.

I would treat it as one. Use several pieces of different sized, but related art to bring it all together.

Print several copies of your pic and draw on them to figure out an arrangement you like.

I have a wall just like that in my new house, except for the peak. We put up a large shelving unit on the far right side, the left side has a large window with an AC unit, and in the middle we hung family pictures and awards and diplomas. Im not a big fan of art myself, one or two is plenty

How to decorate huge dining room/living room wall


We have a two-story blank living room wall and our designer had a great idea: put up a huge wall of square moldings using regular millwork that you buy at the home improvement store. It's something that a skilled DIYer or the average carpenter could probably do.

Ours isn't done yet, so I can't attach any photos. Here's a link -- http://www.bhg.com/decorating/do-it-...olding/#page=1 -- that may give you some ideas.

We think that when people walk into our house and their eyes go to the molding, it's going to be a real "wow" factor for not a lot of hassle or money. Ours is going to go on about two-thirds of the way up the wall. It will be painted white -- the same color of the trim -- and the room color will be above it and go up to the crown molding at the ceiling.

How to decorate huge dining room/living room wall


Hi,

I'm new to the forum and just wanted to share this blog with members about tips for mixing and matching furniture as I thought it might be quite helpful:

http://desser.co.uk/blog/five-top-tips-for-mi...

Personally, I think it's just a matter of not being afraid of failure and getting adventurous.

Would regular members agree with that comment? It'd be interesting to hear anyone else's thoughts.

Thanks,

Ryan

You should put there a big picture wallpaper with ocean, beach pictures or someting like that. This will make your room look bigger.
A nice candletree would also suit there perfectly i think.

You can hang some modern art portraits here. Using a large mirror can also be a great option for this place as it is a large wall, then you can also use two paintings, one for your dining room and one according to living room it will make a good combination. Otherwise, use a large one.
