Off the Wall: How to Decorate Vertically

Think you’ve run out of space? Think again! Here’s a great idea – look up and decorate your walls all the way to the ceiling. We’ve put together some of the best ideas for decorating vertically.

If your motto is “more is more,” then you’ll love these ideas for adding even more great decor and artwork to your collection.  Take the elements of design and apply them to your walls…. all the way to ceiling. The sky is the limit!

We have so many things we love but often we run out of room. Instead of keeping decor eye level, try leading the eye up towards the ceiling with tips from these design envy rooms. If done properly, this can make a space seem larger and more interesting. 

Creating gallery walls is one of our favorite ways to decorate vertical wall space. Gallery walls are always chic. Try incorporating 3-D elements that pop, literally.

One of our own team members, @racheldeerhead, has a pretty enviable vertically decorated space. We asked her about how she utilized her vertical space. “Our ranch has a lot of windows but not a lot of open wall space.  I wanted to display as much of our art collection as possible, so I went with a gallery wall that extends to the ceiling. I also built the niches into our dining room wall (far right). The niches were a practical alternative to traditional shelving. We use them to display our favorite pieces, and they don’t disturb the flow of the house by intruding on valuable floor space the way traditional shelving would. “

One large statement piece can be used to elongate a room. Textiles or extra-large paintings are excellent large-format options. Oversized weavings or textile wall hangings can add interesting textures and warmth to a space. We found this stunning room in the #mycovetedhome gallery on instagram by @verysarie

Floor-to-ceiling shelving can be used to create a compelling tower of objects, art, books and mementos. This is especially useful when flanking existing arrangements, i.e. television. Try mixing a variety of textures and elements, you can create a cutting edge look that never grows old. We found a great example of this from @Amiraelgawly and asked her for advice on achieving this look. “Think of your walls as chapters of a story that you’re telling about yourself. Every frame, shelf, book connects to share a unique part of you. Don’t be afraid to get high! The more vertical space you use, the bigger and more airy your space feels.” 

Let us know how you decorate vertically in the comments and be sure to use the hashtag #mycovetedhome for a chance to be featured on our instagram page

On Trend: Art Inspired Wallpaper | Coveted Home Blog

Not long ago it was said with declarative force that wallpaper was a thing of the past. Was outdated. A faux pa. A designers worst nightmare; more associated with mauve flashbacks to the 70’s than high art. Oh but the times have changed as we fawn over gorgeous wallpapered flats in NYC, in the trendiest L.A studios and, yes, even accenting the walls of Coveted Home! 

We’ve rounded up a few favorite producers of all American made wall coverings. These artists are trailblazing a rich path to prove once and for all that wallpaper is back, and better than ever.  Continue reading On Trend: Art Inspired Wallpaper | Coveted Home Blog
