Is the sofa in your Airbnb's living room in front of a big blank wall? A blank wall always seems to grow and become more boring once the sofa is positioned in front, right? It can be overwhelming knowing what to do with this prominent blank canvas.
However, there are a lot of different ways to bring that wall to life, and I'm here to help!
Let's break down the options and look at some beautiful examples done by some amazing designers.
Gallery walls are always fun and can really allow your creativity to soar with the endless options for what to add. Also, they can be less expensive than buying large pieces of real art, depending on your approach. However, I totally get that the term "endless options" is enough to send many of you into a tizzy of anxiety, and I get it. I am the exact same way without a well thought through plan.
How about a mini-tutorial?! Let's dive in:
(a) Think through your Color...
Decorating walls is something that very few Airbnbs get right, but those that do are undoubtedly more inviting and ultimately more successful.
Art should make your room feel more alive, and more inviting!
Let's go through some examples of inexpensive, yet interesting art.
If you're after something to put in a frame you already own, I highly suggest scouring Etsy. Typically downloadable print files cost around $10 or less. Then all you have to do is print them out from Staples or an online source like Vistaprint in the size that you need. (There will be preset size options listed on the product, so make sure the scale will work with your existing frame if you have one.)
Also, for convenience, these shops will often print the file for you in the size of your choice and ship to your door. It may cost just a bit more than printing yourself, but the convenience might be totally #worthit to you!
