Filling a Big Empty Wall


The Endless Search

Every house has one:   a large empty wall.    
When a cathedral ceiling is involved:  
you have tall, wide and empty!

I am always on the look out for ideas for empty walls.  A recent trade show had many creative solutions.

A few in white on white:




A modern idea:
 And whimsical:





























If you want art for empty walls, I recommend a diptych or triptych.  These are carved wood and add visual, textural and material interest to the space.  At 53" wide and 59" tall this will really fill a wall.
The Richmond Art Galleries have so many pieces to choose from.  Talk to them about your needs and they likely have the perfect piece tucked away in their storage room.   Page Bond Gallery has an incredible collection of local, national and international artists.  Glave Kocen recently they took on Virginia artist Greg Osterhaus, known most for his cows but his landscapes are my favorite.


Consider decorating big empty walls with something sculptural.  This wall combines iron work with lily pad plates and painted frogs.  The hurricane is a clever addition.


Filling an empty wall takes a little imagination and creativity.  If you need some help pulling it together, you know who to call!
