23 Wall Decor Ideas for Your Living Room: Easy Blank Wall Ideas

I absolutely love everything that has to do with wall decor ideas for your living room.

Well really, anything that has to do with home decor in general.

It doesn’t matter if its pieces you buy ready made or you take the time to put them together, there is something satisfying about creating a space that expresses your personal tastes.

I created this list to spark inspiration and hopefully get you off your butt and decorating your space to make it your own. Every time I start a new decor project I like to use some of these gorgeous fonts to make each project my own (a lot of them are FREE).

One of my favorites is the hanging baskets arrangement. It can work for almost any theme and it’s pretty easy to put together, store, or takedown.
