Living Room Wall Decor Ideas

Sometimes coming up with living room wall decor ideas can be challenging.  There are windows, fireplaces, and entryways to work with.  Some living rooms have extra high ceilings, so how do you fill that space correctly?

Today, I would love to share with you some of my simple steps to choosing living room wall decor ideas that not only will fit your style, but will fit your space beautifully.

Decorating a Fireplace Mantel

The living room’s focal point is usually the fireplace. When beginning to decorate with wall decor I like to begin with the focal point.  I realize you may not have a fireplace, but for those of you who do have one, let’s begin here.

To keep both focal points in one area, mounting the television above your mantel a great solution.  But, you may hate the idea of how ascetically unpleasing it is to see a television above the mantel.   A great solutions is to have a special cabinet to house your television when not viewing.  Then that built-in can become a great piece of wall art decor.

Choosing the Right Fireplace Decor


This rock fireplace is beautiful, but the pine mantel didn’t add much to the detail.  I painted the fireplace mantel black, and purchased a new fireplace screen, and accessories.
