The Interiorista: Bare Partitions

Walls represent the body of your home. They provide a sense of shelter and security. They divide the space in the house providing different living areas.
Walls are a blank creative canvas when it comes to decoration. They allow you to express your personality and decor style in multiple ways. They can evoke different visual effects and feelings, and are a great way for you to add charisma to your home.

Your home is full of walls, so how do you know what walls to decorate and how to decorate them? Follow these tips to guide you in your wall decorating process:

1. Find the room's focal point. A room's focal point is its most emphasized feature. It's the thing your eyes are naturally drawn to when you walk into the room. This could be a fireplace, a bay window, a specific piece of furniture, etc.

You can also create your own focal point. Once you decide the purpose of the room,you can make a particular fixture be the focal point in the space. For example, if your goal is to have a library, the shelves in the room will become the focal point. The wall's focal point will be a good wall to decorate!

2. Make sure the room is balanced. if the space has decorations on three walls, leaving a blank wall might make the room feel unbalanced.If you chose a big, dramatic gallery wall in one of the partitions, you might want to have a statement piece of furniture on the opposite wall to equilibrate the space. You certainly don't need to have decorations in each wall but it is important to make sure you keep the room as a whole in balance.

3. Decide what design method you want to use. There are several methods you could follow to decorate your walls, from more intuitive and relax to more precise. Take a look at this guide and choose the one that works best with your space and your taste.

4. Get creative! You don't need to use only picture frames or pieces of art in your walls. There are so many other possibilities out there. Let me share with you some ideas!
