There is a very large wall in our house that is begging for some love. Now that the banister restoration is well under way, I can tell the wall feels left out.
Here's what we're working with:
I'm not sure of the height, but I imagine it's over 10 feet.
For starters, the lighting in this area needs updated and I'm on it. New sconce, new bulbs - done and done. Now to decide how to fill this very large canvas. Some thoughts:
Paint it a bold color, like the Benjamin Moore Soot I love so much.
The wall needs a fresh coat of paint regardless, so why not make the most of it while I'm standing on a ladder, paint brush in hand? Black won't be as forgiving as a white wall would be - edges and trim and all.
Wallpaper. Now hear me out.
There are some pretty great wallpaper designs out there right now. Apartment Therapy wrote about a bunch of black designs, which I'm partial to.
Grow House Grow is my favorite right now. This is a pricey option and a potential solution could be stenciling a black painted wall (see Option 1), but boy, do these look great.
Hang a tapestry or really large canvas.
A likely DIY project if I want to fill the space substantially. The hunt is on for the perfect fabric and a big old piece of driftwood.
Lots of fun choices here, all of which require a very tall ladder.
