88 Wall Decor Inspirations

From Light Emitting Wallpapers to Mounted Planter Tiles

— July 14, 2009 — Art & Design
Most of us have to look at the walls that surround us everyday, so it’s worthwhile to personalize them. Aside from paint, wall decorators can take advantage of wallpapers, panels, tiles, murals and decals. Each of these carries unique properties with which to enhance spaces or express individual personalities.

Wall decor, like Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Last Supper,’ makes a space. Wall decor can range from gorgeous to gaudy and it can serve a purpose other than visual ornamentation. There are wallpapers that light up or smell when scratched. Wall tiles can be designed as elements for a water feature or as planters for living plants.

Trend Hunter pays attention to the nuances of wall decor and has quite a collection of articles addressing the subject. I’ve gathered 89 wall decor examples from the Trend Hunter archives. Now, you have no excuse to simply stare at a wall: You will have to stare into inspiration.
