Decorate Your Walls With Nailheads and Rivets.

I like interesting walls.....simply cannot stand flat, unadorned spaces. It goes back to my philosophy that rooms should entertain you. One way to dress up your walls is a simple but on-trend embellishment, the nailhead. You have loved them on furniture for years. Now consider adding this classic detail to your wall space. It is inexpensive and can be done with relative ease if you are the least bit creative. You can create patterns as well as outlines, run nailheads where the seams meet, apply them to ribbon trim, the ideas go on and on. If do it yourself projects don't appeal to you, I have even included images of walls covered in fabulous riveted wallpaper by Phillip Jeffries. So if you love the look you now have no excuses........ give it a try.

Phillip Jeffries has long been a creator of beautiful textural wall coverings and his Rivets pattern combines the look of nail heads or industrial rivets with the texture they are known for in the interiors industry such as grasscloth, burlap, or linen. The next seven pictures all feature Rivets in it's various colors.

The look of nailheads and rivets will elevate the look of any wall and bring definition to your space. You can concentrate on a single section of wall if doing the whole room is too much for you.

Here the wall behind the bed is covered in Rivets nailhead inspired wallpaper. It creates a great background that mixes well with other patterns.

I am not sure who makes the wonderful nailhead inspired wall covering used by this design group for the space above. Will be glad to publish if anyone knows. These papers work well in traditional as well as more modern style homes.

There are a number of tutorials on line to show you how it's done if you are interested in using nailheads on the walls of your home.

There are larger nailheads and rivets available if you want even more of an impact for your walls.

Nailheads elevate the look of any wall. These are used with a classic coffered ceiling, traditional stairway and furniture.

But they look equally chic within a more modern transitional setting.

Use nailheads to outline a tailored shape on your wall.

You can purchase nailheads in a variety of finishes,shapes, and sizes. These brass square ones really give definition to the walls.

Another alternative is galvanized metal sheets paired with rivets for a really cool wall.

Or how about faux rivets......there is always trompe l'oeil!!!
