My Wall Art Tips

A blank wall is your chance to draw real personality into your home. If you take this opportunity by the horns, you'll be able to set the tone of your space, so get creative with options and don't be afraid to take a different approach. Here are some of my tips for wonderful walls.

Wrapping art around walls or placing it asymmetrically or at different heights instantly changes the focal point of a space.

Art comes in many forms and so it pays to use your imagination when it comes to decorating your walls. I discovered this fencing mask in the US, however, I’m sure he’s French. I put it on and I can hear his accent. The paper rosette demonstrates the results of a simple DIY project. Start playing around with a roll of stiff brown paper and see what emerges.

Abandon precise and measured hanging arrangements in favour of dense, off-kilter groupings. Add new acquisitions as you go.

‘Up high, down low’ hanging arrangements are an artful alternative to the usual symmetrical placement. Raffia-wrapped wire, obviously displayed for all to see, adds another layer of decoration.

To avoid a look that’s too prescriptive it’s important to throw something unexpected into the mix – in this case a taped-up snapshot and a giant cross made of funeral foam into the mix.
