The syndrome of the blank page is one that people who are dedicated to literature or art feel when they start to create, a mental block that translates into a lack of inspiration (although you can look for them in books and movies ), and that they experience before that empty page that they feel that they will not be able to fill it in the way they would like. The same thing happens in decoration: Facing a white wall can be scary. And the bigger the wall, the more headaches we will have when decorating it.

Okay, maybe you don’t have the budget (or the desire) to create a brick wall niche. But what if you install a shelf one that looks like it? The secret is that it has curved shapes and a tone similar to that of the white wall.
Installing a headboard in the bedroom is a perfect resource for that wall to have some life. In this house, for example, we have opted for an XXL one in blue (no, the wall has not been painted) and a photograph has been placed on it.
Another option to place your pictures or prints (especially if they all belong to the same collection) is to place them in equal frames and symmetrically. The effect is perfect.
Although this image is a piece of art, you can go elementary and place a simple sheet of color on the wall or a piece of stained wood. In a powerful color it will be the center of all eyes.
