One of the best interior design ideas is to create an accent wall in your home. Accent walls are a great way of highlighting or emphasizing an area or a specific wall inside your home. A great idea for an accent wall is to make it astrology themed.
This accent wall can be the biggest wall in your living room or the wall where the headboard of the bed is against. The great thing about accent walls is that there are a lot of options which you can choose from, and here are some ideas!
- an accent wall in the dining area with star-ornamented ceramic plates propped against the wall
- painted accent wall using star stencils that you can make yourself or online templates that you can get printed
- paint your accent walls with the milky way galaxy or a space-themed artwork
- put up frames with a celestial design
- put up wallpapers filled with stars or sun-shaped designs
- paint a tapestry or find the perfect tapestry online that you can spread to your chosen wall
In choosing the design for your accent wall, make sure to think outside the box and be creative. It is best to make the entire family involved with the project especially if the accent wall is situated in family areas of the home.
2. Create a focal point
In celestial-themed décor, it does not mean that you would always incorporate heavenly bodies into your designs. You can also take the concept of space and our solar system into your interior design.
The sun is in the center of our universe and the planets revolve around it, you can use this concept in your interior design, for example, by putting a coffee table at the center of your living room and arranging the chairs and sofa around it like planets revolving around the sun.
There are a lot of space concepts that you can use and most of the time they are great inspirations for efficient interior layouts.
