Decorate the walls with antique objects

Walls decorated with old photographs or flea market items

Wall decoration has evolved a lot, from the everlasting paintings (originals or prints) and the heads of animals, to the pictures placed in a geometric way and the motifs on vinyl. Currently highlights the profusion of elements placed asymmetrically or the repetition of the same object in different formats, recalling past styles.

Inspiration comes from varied fontsLike British Romanticism, French Baroque or the Central European Renaissance "Chambers of Wonders", those private cabinets that hoarded art, ceramics, antiques and all sorts of prodigious inventions and various gadgets in a confined space. The common aspect when decorating the wall seems to be the homogeneity in the colors: ocher, tan, sepia or grayish tones, which give the environment a special and evocative patina.
