Creativity doesn’t just stop with your furniture and soft furnishings; there is a huge expanse of space on your walls too. If you are keen of creating a unique look and adding a bit of character to featureless walls, then look no further, the suggestions here will help to get you started.
Fabric, especially designer fabric can cost a lot of money; however you can add a bit of designer style on a budget. Think about covering your bed headboard in a designer fabric, or taking a canvas panel and covering it with designer wall paper. If you cover a few panels you can add these blocks of colour to walls, lifting them from plain to wow.
Stencils and stickers are a favourite at the moment, as they are relatively good value for money and can create a whole new look in a room. There is a wide range to choose, from witty slogans to monochrome silhouettes. You can place a vibrant graphic in a dull alcove to add a bit of a surprise or for larger graphics you can build them up from the skirting board and let them develop onto the wall space.
Wall art is another stylish alternative to framed pictures, the trend at the moment is for metal art with the essence of nature about it, however if you like to set your own trend, why not create your own, from finds along the seashore, such as driftwood or create a collage of shells or other items you find upon your travels.
Hopefully these easy ideas will inspire you to create your own masterpiece to feature on your walls. But don’t forget about papier-mâché, you can make masks, animal heads in fact anything you can think of, just paint in one colour or add crystals and fabric and go crazy with it.
