Large painting

First, we’ll let you in on a little secret: One large statement piece on your wall will make your decor much more cohesive and refined than multiple wall decor pieces. So our first idea is to place a large painting on your wall. It can be abstract, scenic, or whatever screams “class” to you. That painting becomes a source of comfort to you when you lounge on your couch and a familiar sight for your guests.

A good set of sconces can really tie together your wall decor. And similar to wall clocks, they may seem like a so-last-century style, but in reality, there are so many cool, contemporary ones to choose from out there. Plus, a pair of them can give symmetry and balance to your space.

Oversized wall clock

Keep it simple with a single, oversized wall clock. There are so many regal yet modern-looking, decorative wall clocks that you can buy to fit your space. We promise it’s not an old-school thing — this is a time-tested idea if you will, and it can still be hip.

Hanging plants

Plants will always be a good choice for any room in the house — we’re sure of it. When it comes to living room wall decor ideas, hanging indoor plants is a great one. You’ll need to install a few floating shelves on the wall that can hold your plants. We recommend staggering them for a fun, modern look.

Decorative mirrors

We saved our favorite for last: decorative mirrors. Nothing says classy and fun like some cool, circular mirrors. You can go with one big one or get a few small ones and arrange them however you’d like along the wall.

Living room wall decor ideas may come to you simply enough, but it’s always nice to have a specific vision for your space instead of hanging things up willy-nilly. If you’re specifically looking for a modern, classy, and fun look in your living room, we hope these living room wall decor ideas serve you and your home well.
