merely painting or adding dated looking wallpaper to your walls. The
latest trends in wall decor now allow you to add texture, as well as
colour, to the walls throughout your home to make your interior space
even more dynamic, fun, and unique. Continue reading for a few of the
many new ways that people are diving into designing their homes for
the 21st century.
Renewable Hemp Walls
- Yes, It's Possible!
To really turn your space into an eco-friendly one, consider having hemp wall coverings installed. Hemp, which is a popular renewable resource, can be used for a variety of products, including clothing, and individuals who want to help the environment buy hemp-based products in order to make a difference. The texture of these walls is also unique, though, thanks to the braided paper that it's combined with. But rest assured that, even with the paper added to the hemp, no chemicals or machines were used to manufacture this wall covering.
frames turned into Artwork
You no longer have to feel like you have to fill up all of your frames with photographs because one of the latest trends in wall
decor now insists that you take a bunch of
your mismatched frames, spray paint them the same colour, and arrange them on your wall in order to make them a piece of art that no one else has. The key is to make them really pop off the walls, so paint them a colour that will be in sharp contrast to the paint colour on the wall. This is a great way to decorate the space over your bedroom furniture. But if your furniture itself needs a makeover before you apply this new aesthetic to your space,

Metallic Walls for Something Totally Modern
another great wall covering that will go perfectly against your
bedroom furniture or living room furniture is a subtle metallic
option. The keyword here, though, is "subtle," because you
definitely don't want to make your home look like it came out of a
cheesy television show or movie based in outer space. By choosing an
accent wall within a room and applying a metallic covering, you can
add dimension to the space and avoid overdoing it
A Glass House? No, Just Some Glass Walls
These days, when it comes to interior design, it seems that just about anything is possible, including adding a subtle glass element to your walls. This provides a bit of shine to a room but, again, if you don't want to go overboard or if you're dealing with a room that's too small for this effect, stick to adding this wall covering to an accent wall only. One example uses tiny glass beads that are set up in a striped pattern against a metallic wallpaper, which may work very well against bedroom furniture.
When it comes to wall
decor, consider the furniture in the space before choosing the colour and texture of the walls. If you have a lot of eye-catching furniture, keep the walls subtle.
On the other hand, you can allow the walls to be the centre of attention if you have minimal furniture.
