Bring your living room walls to life with some inspiration from our favourites
It’s time to think a little out of the box for bringing to life dead walls in your living room. Apart from the usual textured paint, wallpaper and even fabric, there are several other décor options that can be explored. For instance, you can prop it with a line of shelves and display your travel souvenirs or even decorate it with murals.

Take a leaf from Srila Chatterjee’s home for your own feature wall. The mirrored wall not only makes the space look bigger, but also instantly makes it brighter and more colourful, due to the reflection of the artworks.
If you’re a collector and would like to display your collection of plates, masks, artworks, etc take a cue from Bomti Iyengar’s house in Kolkata. He has expertly converted blank walls into canvasses to showcase his enviable compilation of fine china and masks amassed by him through the years.
Your feature wall can also double up as a gallery for your memories and souvenirs. You can dedicate either half or an entire wall to shelves that house family portraits, trophies, souvenirs, show pieces, etc.
To focus attention on a corner, think of painting only that section in a particular colour or covering only that particular section with a wallpaper. It doesn’t necessarily have to be half and half, but can also be just a quarter of a wall, as seen in this setup by Shabnam Gupta.
