14 Striking Wall Tapestries That Give Life to Blank Walls

Decorating a wall can be daunting. Sometimes a massive blank area calls for a larger art piece, but you’d rather not take out a loan to purchase that enormous painting you saw at the local art gallery. Or maybe you’re drawn to the more modern take on wallpaper, but can’t quite make the commitment to apply glue to your unsuspecting wall.

A wall tapestry just might be your solution! Take a look at these amazing tapestries for inspiration and conviction of this cost-effective yet statement-making design trend. They make wonderful additions to guest rooms, bedrooms, living rooms and kids’ rooms!
