Ask Mr. Kate: filling big empty walls?

Answer:
Hi Sophia! Big empty walls are so much fun because there are soooooo many ways to make them a statement for the design of your space. Paint and framed art is the most traditional way that people highlight a big wall, but there are loads of outside the box options too! Here are some of my favorites…

  • These are the free-hand painted wall stripes that I did on one wall in our apartment. See more pics here and see them in a little girl’s room that I designed here! Vertical stripes add the illusion of height to a space and these free-hand stripes have a more organic and cozy feeling.

  • Cluster of frames – this is what our living room used to look like before I painted the stripes. I spray painted the frames using colors based off the rug.

  • If you’re looking for something playful, try a DIY a chalkboard or whiteboard wall

I hope these inspired some ideas for your own big blank wall! Have fun making it not blank and let us know what you end up doing! Happy decorating!
