Decorate the walls with framed pictures and paintings. An empty wall can almost give the impression of an empty (yet boring) room. BUT, the key here is to make sure that the picture frames are good quality, and they are good looking picture frames.
A frame can really enhance the effect of a picture or a photo. I’ve had many a picture that was “nice”, but when I put it in a frame, it turned out like a great picture. If you’d like to try this, I recommend adding a border around a photo you have on your computer using something like PhotoShop (or GIMP, for a free tool). You’ll notice the difference immediately.
And, use a frame that goes with the decor of the room. There are many types of picture frames out there. There are simple, modern ones, and some very decorative frames. Like I said, keep it inline with the decor of the room.
Browse around and see what’s out there. As I’ve said in previous articles, look for examples. Look at photos, shops or catalogs and try and see if there’s something that would compliment your home.
