Stair angle: give volume with frames or photos
If you have a staircase corner that seems very empty to you, opt for this decorative solution. The idea is to create volume for your staircase by superimposing frames on the wall, at the corner.
This is a new decorative trend to adopt as soon as possible if you want an original and personalized interior. Choose frames of different sizes and colors to create a dynamic visual rendering. Opt for example for black or gold, round, oval or rectangular frames. As for the choice of pattern, try to create a unit with visuals of a similar universe.
Advice : if you are more into photos than paintings, have good memories (of holidays, for example) in the corner of the stairs.
Decorate a corner of the wall with plants
Do you like both plants and atypical decorations? Then opt for this trendy idea. Create a real indoor garden by installing plants around a corner of the wall. For this, attach shelves.
As far as the choice of plants is concerned, give preference to resistant and easy-care species so that they will be happy in this particular place. Some plants are particularly trendy. Among them, the pilea or exotic varieties such as the monstera.
Decorate a corner of the room with masking tape or stickers
To decorate a corner of the wall, you can use masking tape. But what is it? Fans of creative hobbies are familiar with this accessory. In part, because this adhesive tape (or scotch) has a strong decorative potential.
Coming from Japan, the masking tape is made with rice paper. In creative leisure and DIY stores, you will find them in all colors and with different patterns (graphic, checkered, etc.). If this adhesive tape keeps the children busy and allows you to create party decorations, it is also used to decorate a wall.
Show a minimum of dexterity to transform a lost angle into a decorative work. Stick the masking tape in a square, diamond, star or any other shape starting from the corner. The more manual or creative can opt for complex patterns (origami, for example).
Advice : if you are afraid of not succeeding in your corner decoration with adhesive tape, prefer simplicity. On the internet or in decoration and furniture stores, you will easily find wall stickers. These stickers sometimes give a stunning result.
