Don’t risk committing an interior design crime by leaving your walls blank forever! From shelving to decals to mirrors, there are countless ways to turn your walls into eye candy. Just follow these three simple tips from the experts appearing at the Vancouver Home + Design Show to turn your walls from snooze-worthy to stunning.
1. Magical Mirrors
Mirrors automatically make a space appear bigger and brighter. Christine Friend, owner of the Friendly Decorator, believes you don’t always have to shell out big bucks for a great mirror to freshen up your home. She suggests stopping by Homesense to find a mirror that doubles as a piece of art and light reflector. Feel free to splurge on a large, ornate piece or opt for an assortment of smaller ones to group together.
Catch Christine on the HGTV Main Stage at the Vancouver Home + Design Show on Friday Oct. 18 at 3PM, Saturday Oct. 19 at 12PM and Sunday Oct. 20 at 3PM.
2. Paint Perfect
There’s more to an accent wall than decorative accessories. Annie Sloan, painter and author, believes a room can be transformed with a simple can paint. Choose a single surface as your feature wall, then select a colour that is different yet complimentary to the rest of the walls in the room, and go wild! Annie recommends a bold statement hue, such as bright blue.
Learn more from the painting expert when she appears on the HGTV Main Stage at the Vancouver Home + Design Show on Saturday Oct. 19 at 11AM and again at 5PM.
3. Wallpaper Whimsy
Design duo Jennifer Scott and Megan Baker, designers at A Good Chick To Know, tells all their clients to allocate a good portion of their budgets towards sofas, beds and wallpaper. Wallpaper is a great way to create a feature wall and incorporate home décor trends into a space. Plaid is the popular pattern du jour, try it in a muted hue to add interest to the wall behind your bed. If you aren’t ready to commit to wallpaper, try playing with wall decals instead. Most can be easily applied and removed, leaving you stress-free when you are ready for something new!
For more design tips, don’t miss Jennifer at the Vancouver Home + Design Show. She will be on the HGTV Main Stage with Megan on Friday Oct. 18 at 2PM, Saturday Oct. 19 at 6PM and Sunday Oct. 20 at 1PM.
