Big blank or high ceiling walls are – let’s face it – b.o.r.i.n.g.!
So, there you are in your new or remodeled condo or office – and you have decided that you are not going to have those large white walls everywhere resembling hospital décor. That look is OVER for you, right? Puts you to sleep. Your guests go unconscious from ”white out” and there they are, lying on the floor. Embarrassing.
What to do with my tall walls or big blank walls?
It can be quite a challenge to decorate those soaring ceilings and Titanic-like walls. Do you have to give up the comfortable look just because expansive white walls are “modern” or “trendy”?

The 4 Top Tips on Solving the Tall Wall
(according to Melisa)
- Size up: One of the easiest ways to warm up a tall wall is to scale up the artwork to match it. Depending on the space and its dimensions you can use large horizontal pieces or massive square ones that kill the emptiness and empower the space, without overpowering the room.

2. Hang vertical art work: A perfect complement to tall walls is vertical artwork, such as a single bold image, or a large gallery wall grouping.
3. Use bold colors: Utilizing vivid colors in your vertical art will take guests’ eyes upward, creating more intimacy and connectedness.
4. Consider installations: A contemporary installation is a great way to connect your extra height to the rest of the interior, creating enough interest and variation such that the wall doesn’t require any other decor.
