What to do with large wall!

Julie FlagtwetFebruary 5, 2013
You have all helped me with other rooms, so what are suggestions here? The room is the family room open to kitchen, not a tv room. Adjacent wall is all plantation shutters. Don't want collage of small photos!! A mirror would probably reflect too much. Room is large ( couches are 9 ft). Wall is 15 1/2 ft. Ideas....?

I have a similar wall in my dining room. I found a replica of an old Paris map. It came in sections and I just used wallpaper glue to put it on the wall (after priming the area) to create a 6' x 9' map.

I love the idea of an old map!

Another, larger painting from the same artist who produced the painting/print above the mantle would be another option. If you bought it locally, you may be able to "commission" the artist to produce something for you that would suite your tastes/space/wall.
