Beige can get boring and sometimes taupe is too plain. So try something out of the ordinary and add some spice to your walls with these unique decorating ideas!

1) Vinyl Decals

 

Add a chandelier, a menagerie or simply a few flowers to your living room décor with vinyl wall decals. Starting at $10, decals are en vogue, easy to use and inexpensive.  Most decals look best with a solid background wall, but remember, your wall doesn’t have to be white. Be creative, and try a bright color or even go black! Read There’s A Hole In My Wall to see how wall decals can add to your décor.

2) Black Paint

If you’re looking to repaint your walls, say buh-bye to beige and give black a try. Black rooms are cozy, and can give worn-in furniture new appeal because the colors will pop against a dark wall. Black can actually brighten up a room with the right accents. Don’t take our word for it! See for yourself and read Walls: Buh-Bye Lead Paint & Back To Black.

3) Chalkboard Paint

 

For only a few dollars and a few hours, you can add a whimsical touch to any wall with chalkboard paint. Want a giant calendar to keep track of your day? Paint it. Want to write recipes on the kitchen wall? Do it! With chalkboard paint, the options are endless. For an easy DIY recipe, check out Chalkboard Paint Ideas and DIY Recipe.

4) Climbing Garden

 

Do you love gardening, but have no space to plant? Instead of lamenting over your lack of yard, plant vertical! Flowers, succulents and herbs all do well sideways. Plus, a flower-filled wall adds beauty and color to any living space. For a step-by-step on making a succulent wall garden, visit Sunset.
