When decorating walls, there are a few simple aspects one should take into consideration. Naturally, personal preferences will be the first to come into play, but there are also a set of simple sensitivity rules to be followed, such as don’t overdo it, avoid mixing too many styles, pick a suitable color hue when working with colors, and, above all, be creative.
If you wish to display a refined design without putting too much effort into the composition, you can work with textures. There is a wide array of materials available, from those closer to mother nature herself to some that came about from skilled craftsmanship. Pick your wall of interest and let’s see how it’s done.
Textured wall panels

Among my personal favorites are carved panels. Many manufacturers produce them from wood material, with carved motifs in subtle relief, left in a natural finish or even painted and lacquered for a sleek and glossy look.
If you want to do it the cheap way and pride on your self crafted art creation, choose a large panel of your favorite wood. Look up an interesting pattern on the internet – such as a feminine vine motif or a very geometric one, perhaps an intricate Mayan amulet – and have it lasered onto the wood. Your guests will surely appreciate such an artistic touch, hung over a comfortable couch in the living room or displayed under great ambient lighting by your stylish dining table.
