When the design dilemma is an empty wall, the design solution is usually to just paint it, add whatever framed print or canvas you have and call it a day. While this is certainly the easiest thing to do, it's not the only solution out there. From displaying a collection that's been hiding for far too long from adding a dramatic pattern that extends beyond the wall itself, it's time to think outside the one-color-fits-all paint can and take those empty canvases to an exciting new level.
