This is through the large open space you have – the walls. There are plenty of creative ideas you can apply to make your wall speak for you.Anjali Jain, an artist and founder of Kala Drishti (NGO) share some ideas to revamp our bland wall:Choose the right colour for your wallIt is a crucial decision and at the same time very difficult to choose the right colour for the walls. The colour should blend with the lighting and furniture in the room. To make any room look good without taking much risk, keep darker colours for floor, moderate colours for the walls and light colours for the ceiling. Also, we should keep in mind for whom the room is being decorated. For instance, if the room is for young kids, then they would prefer bright colours, whereas for aged people light colours are preferable.
