We believe home design should be stylish and distinctive. From a space-transforming mirror to the instant refresh of allover wallpaper, wall decor defines the character of a space and sets the tone for your design. At Lulu and Georgia, our thoughtfully curated collection of home wall decor has all the elements you need to bring beauty to every corner of your home.
Not sure where to start when shopping for your walls? Don't worry; we have got you covered. Check out a few tips below for inspiration as you select the best elements to purchase for your home.
Breaking Down the Elements of Home Wall Decor
Wall decor includes any of the elements we layer onto our walls—from wallpaper to the smallest finishing touch. Along with your wall light fixtures, these elements have a huge impact on the look and feel of space, so it’s worth taking time, being intentional, and letting your curation evolve over time. Our walls are a canvas that lets us bring our personality to the room—which can feel overwhelming. So, let’s start by breaking down some of the elements.
You may have already noticed wallpaper is back—and we are on board. Wallpaper is a brilliant way to create visual interest by layering patterns and texture into the room. Whether you’re looking to create focus with an accent wall or add depth and character with wall-to-wall coverage, wallpaper can be a cost-effective way to create impact in your design. Check out our wallpaper guide for more tips on choosing and installing wallpaper.
Wall art instantly refreshes a look and brings character to your home, speaking to the personality and interests of the people who live there. It’s an easy element to change out and evolve as tastes grow. We love the unexpected depth a masterful painting or vibrant print can bring to a room, but decorative wall art doesn’t have to sit flat in the frame. Framed textiles and mixed media art let you bring a dose of texture to any space. A dimensional piece like this See Through Wall Art is a great way to introduce texture in modern wall decor—plus, it brings a touch of color to the room.
Mirrors can transform a space, and there are endless ways to enhance your design with one. From ornate framed designs that serve as wall decorations to leaning floor mirrors that augment light and make your ceilings feel higher, the right mirror in the right spot can be the finishing touch that makes your design work. Looking for something on-trend to revive your living room or entryway? We’re loving organic silhouettes like this Junah Mirror.
Think beyond the frame. Wall hangings are a great way to layer texture into your curation. Woven elements can provide a grounding touch with artisan appeal, while shape-driven pieces like this Echo Wall Hanging by Circle & Line can create visual impact for modern wall decor. Some of the best design moments fold functionality into art— a sculptural hook or wall clock can provide the perfect touch for livable design.
How to Choose Pieces for Impact In Your Wall Decor
Shopping wall decor can be daunting because there are so many elements at play and nearly endless ways to incorporate each into your design. You may love a piece but not know how to fit it into your space, or you may have an awkward patch of wall and no idea how to fill it. It can be helpful to start with a goal in mind—choosing individual elements is easier when you have a vision for the whole. Here are three tips to get you started if you have a room that’s feeling flat.
Turn Up The Texture
One of the quickest ways to refresh a room is to layer in some texture. Wall hangings and framed textiles can provide a tactile element you can fold into any space. Other wall decorations and sculptural features can also inspire depth by adding dimension. Texture doesn’t have to be tactile, though. Patterned wallpaper can also bring dynamic interest to a room. If you are going for patterned wallpaper, remember this designer tip—fit the pattern to the area, small-scale patterns for small-scale spaces, and large-scale patterns for larger spaces.
Create a Focal Point
A focal point brings you into a space and sets the tone—it’s the first thing you experience when you walk into the room. Often, a focal point will be part of the architecture—a bay window, a fireplace, or an exposed brick wall. But you can also create a focal point with wall decor. You’re looking for visual weight —this can come from color, size, or contrast. You can use wallpaper to create an accent wall, hang a vibrant painting over a sofa or bed, or even curate a gallery wall.
Curate a Gallery Wall
A gallery wall lets you incorporate multiple elements in one statement feature. There is no one rule for designing a gallery wall—pick pieces that speak to you and let the collection grow over time. Try to leave 3 to 5 inches between elements so there’s a sense of unity without feeling clustered. Don’t be afraid to blend styles; modernist pieces can sit in conversation with classic paintings and minimalist sketches with textural wall hangings. For a more eclectic approach, think beyond decorative wall art—incorporate mirrors, clocks, or functional wall accents like shelves or hooks into the curation.
However you style it, remember that wall decor allows you the flexibility to showcase the nuances of your design aesthetic. Loved ones and visitors can immediately get a sense of who you are by seeing how you have layered texture, color, and pattern into the room while creating moments of depth and interest.
