An image can express many things; it can convoy  meaning, send messages of various kinds, represent visually a person of interest, your loved ones, a print of Egon Schiele or even a super complex  recomposed puzzle. A picture on a wall is the cherry on the pie that makes you realize that those walls and what they contain are truly yours. And there is to say that choosing the right pictures to hang is one of the most interesting parts in designing the house.

And there is to say that choosing the right pictures to hang is one of the most interesting parts in designing the house.

There are millions of ways to design a room  with never tiring pictures, depending on your personal taste and your home design. If your living room  has a canonic but always tasty big sofa in the middle, facing a TV screen or a fireplace, maybe a large window on one side, well, hanging a picture on the wall behind the sofa would certainly give your room a more finite look, adding complexity to an otherwise empty wall. Remember to hang it at least 20 cm above your piece of furniture. The content of your picture is entirely up to you but if you follow our piece of advice, you’ll never risk to be involuntarily sloppy.

First of all, one of the most important things to remember is never to chose something cheap or standardized, that’s for crumbling motels, certainly not for your home. Probably, since you are visiting Mechini’s websites, this piece of information is completely unnecessary, you must be a luxury lover. Chose something unique, like an enlarged picture of your family. Colors or black & white? It depends on your furniture. If you love to decorate living room and it is already full of colors, curtains, cushions and accessories, chose black and white: your guests’ eyes will be automatically drawn to it. Or vice versa.

You can also take a look to the colors for fall 2015, like aluminum and gold, to find inspiration for your living room. Imagine a stunning orchid painted wall with a white gold frame on it, or even create a homemade frame with a magazine page (the front page of your birthday’s newspaper, for instance) or a page of a book you find particularly inspiring in it. Your wall décor will be incredibly enhanced if you chose to hang your private art collection, from photograph to oil on canvas paintings, or even a souvenir of your vacations. It is a great way to display your taste, lifestyle and state of mind. Have fun with the layout, imagine the disposition before hanging or you can even lay your pictures on the table or on the floor to see if they fit together.

There are plenty of living room ideas to look to find inspiration, but the best part is finding something nobody else have that can convoy positive vibrations in your own way.
