Color block wall décor can help coordinate the color scheme in a room or throughout the house.
Some time ago I ran across this image of a color block wall made up of scrap wood in a variety of colors. Something about its rustic nature and sense of imperfection resonated with me. The random layout has a modern vibe while the individual (salvaged?) boards painted in various shades had me thinking vintage. Naturally, I saved the picture.
You know how it is when you see something then soon after you start noticing it everywhere. That’s what happened next. Each time I looked at a magazine or a designer’s portfolio, there it was — that multicolor wall, only this time, as artwork. What they all had in common were colors used to mirror those of the accessories and furniture.
Some of the pieces were robust, generating a noticeable presence in a room.
Others, like this one, had a quieter aura with muted colors flowing together to project a sense of tranquility.
I’ve been searching for a large piece of art to place over my living room sofa. With 15-foot-high ceilings in the room, I need something substantial. After viewing so many of these color-block pieces it occurred to me that a canvas incorporating the colors of my room might be just the thing to fill that void. A little modern, vintage and rustic combination is precisely what my home’s interior is all about but never did I consider a modern piece of art.
How funny that sometimes the solution to a décor dilemma can be right in front of you all along. Still, it’s important to observe all the elements of a room’s design. If you are like me, see something and think “Oh, no, that is so not me,” I say take a second look. Seeing an object in the right setting is often the only way to understand that it might work for you after all.
