Need help with empty wall
June 15, 2014
Hi! I have been trying to figure out what to hang on the wall above the couch in my living room. The house is a log cabin and (obviously) very brown. I thought maybe a mirror would help brighten up the room, but I can't seem to find a good one. Decor for the rest of the house is rustic/vintage-y. Any suggestions would be helpful!

That wall needs large, great color and texture, fabric, stretched canvas or 3 dimensional character like metal objects - Hudson bay blanket, hooked rug/wall hanging, quilt in dark tones, beautiful tree branches. If a mirror be sure to choose a frame that is substantial looking - maybe metal as you already have lots of wood. A throw and a couple of pillows in a natural woven texture would also add some color.

would metal on the wall make the room look darker? everything inside the house is very brown so i figure this would be a great opportunity to brighten it up somehow via the wall (even though i cant come up with anything).

Large vintage sign sounds good. Pillows with color from the sign would tie it all together. Maybe larger colorful lamps that match.

HI -- Is that part of the house or is it an applied paneling ? If it's paneling ... I would remove it . Angled paneling is dated . If it is part of the house structure , I would drywall over it and paint a nice color and have a big painting .
