Whether you just moved into a brand new house, or you have been in a place for awhile, one of the hardest decisions to make is sometimes how to decorate the walls! It’s easier to decide where you want the couch in relation to the tv or complementary chairs. And it may even be simple to hang a proportionate mirror or picture frame about a dresser or armoire. But what about the seemingly vast spaces on the walls of your home? Do you break up the space with a picture gallery? What if there’s already one on a neighboring wall? What if you want to cover part of a large wall with something and the other side with shelves? Are there rules?
Today, we are going to debunk some of these questions, Local + Lejos style. All you will need is a good eye, hammer, nails, and some of our favorite bowls. There isn’t any major rule of thumb that you need to watch out for, but we want to show you how you can decorate a wall that is eye catching, different, and can be a vocal point to a room that otherwise has a question mark as a blank canvas wall.
First, you will need to decide what bowls you like. We have small, medium, and even trays that can be mixed and matched. Depending on the size of your space you can do a pair, trio, or multiple bowls. And depending on your style, there is something for everyone. With the recent launch of our Geometric Collection, if you are looking for ultra modern but soft, opt for mixing those bowls with a Zera Bowl. Or you can go with a brighter option by choosing a mix from our Indigo Collection. Options are truly endless to suit your personal style and taste.
Now you might be thinking, “How do I hang a bowl on a wall?” Well, our artisan partners have designed each bowl and tray to have a hook on the back, making it very easy for you to hang up. Our best tip before nailing anything into the wall is lay out your collection on the floor. Try setting them up different ways to really get a good picture at how you may want them to hang on the wall!
From there, you can hold up to the wall and make little marks where the nail should be placed based on where the hook is. It’s a fairly simple process and from the photos pictured here, you can envision anything from a small space to a large wall making use of hanging bowls.
