A blank wall can really make a room look unfinished.
But there are a lot of options to make a wall look a lot less blank and a lot more finished.


Its pretty simple to add a beautiful mirror to a boring wall

Mirrors have the dual advantage of being able to add interest to a wall and bring
light and reflection into a room.
