The start of the new year is always a great time to start revamping your decor, and one place to start is with your walls. Depending of course, on which room you want to do-over, you can choose a very bold color with a confident, large pattern, or opt for an interesting texture in a more subdued tone. From multi-colored bathroom tiles that cover almost every surface, to geometric patterned wallpaper on a feature wall in the living room, the choices are endless when it comes to creating a unique and modern wall for your home. Let's start by seeing 15 of them.
