Functional Wall Decor Ideas

Our whole goal with Deck The Walls is to give you lots of ideas for how to fill up your walls to make your home beautiful in *your* style. But there are some areas of the home that need to also have a little bit of function tied in the stylistic form of whatever is on the wall.  So today, we have over 30 ideas of functional wall decor, to help you get the most of our your wall space!

This is one of my favorite easy ideas — a narrow wall shelf hides cords and electronics (or whatever else you need hidden) and a hinged art canvas serves as a door and a diguise (from Mamma Mekko)
