How To Decorate: Decorating A White Wall With Ideas


While white walls look clean and fresh, they can get a bit too... bright and blinding. I myself have four wonderful white walls but not plain. Each wall has something on it to break the whiteness so to speak. This hub will share ideas on how to decorate those white walls!


1) Create a memory board. This can be something quite simple like sticking photos on a wall. If you want to be more creative, take a big piece of paper, stick photos and words on it and decorate it with glitter and other little inspirational items. Stick it on a white wall to add some color.


2) Create a card string holder.You will need string, cards of any type, washing pegs and something to secure the holder on the wall. First, cut the cards into desired shapes and sizes and then peg them with a peg onto a piece of string. Once this is done, secure it to the wall and voila! No more white walls.


3) Hang a large world map onto a wall. Not only will you find your way around the wall but a map looks rather attractive against a wall.


4) Make a wall of post it notes. Write little inspirational notes and stick them all over the wall. This makes a wall colorful and it's easy to remove!


I have done most of these things to break the whiteness of the walls in my room and I personally love D.I.Y. jobs. Do it yourself mate!

I love the idea of a giant world map on the wall. The way I took care of white walls in my first apartment was to create a giant grouping of my favorite photographs to cover the wall. It was colorful and fun and it made me happy.
