7 Blank Wall Design Inspirations

I have a common design dilemma — what do you do with a long windowless wall?   Especially when it’s the first one you see when you enter the house?

Relative to the open floor plan..

Relative to rest of room

Fireplace not mounted yet, it will be a bit further to right..

The 13 ft. run of blank white wall.  Fireplace not mounted yet, it will be a bit further to right.  (Ignore table)

So I went searching for a little inspiration – any excuse to surf the net ‘n drool over hot designs!  Here are some found options:

1)  Textured 3D wall panel

Elegant and lovely. Unique as well since it’s your collection that can be added to over time. Plus, minimal work in the immediate – just paint single light color, and start adding framed art and photographs!
