For an idea that’s truly stunning and rustic, use wooden planks on your walls. You can cover your wall entirely or just partially. After, you could also try using an aged finish.

Or, if you want to add a little more colorful detail to your room, you could try painting the walls in a color that you like.

Once you’ve installed the wooden planks onto your walls, try hanging some pots on them. Fill them with green, leafy plants and dress up your bare walls.

2. Frame composition

Bare walls are the perfect canvas for a beautiful collage that’s composed of different elements. Try hanging up frames that are all different sizes. Take it a step further with a collection of frames of different colors and textures as well.

To fill the space inside the frames, you can use small objects that you have laying around at home. To give you an idea, use small wall clocks, antique plates or other items.

Decorating bare walls with a composition of frames will really dress things up with an eclectic style. You’d be creating an atmosphere of objects from different eras that use different colors and materials.
