Dressing your Walls

I had an enquiry from one of my lovely Facebook friends recently. She wanted me to help her with some cost-effective ideas for decorating her walls. I know that, over time, I have posted quite a few inspirational photos to my Facebook page that could help her, so I have decided to put a whole bunch of them together into one post. This way it should be easier for her, and anyone else interested, to be inspired and hopefully find something just perfect. All photos come from my Facebook page, which has the appropriate credits.

Magazines usually have beautiful covers - make a feature of them on your wall

A collection of colourful plates can look quite stunning grouped together

Something as simple as a couple of vintage keys on a nail can look amazing

A picture wall always looks cool - I love using kids' art, cards, and favourite prints

Hooks are not only practical, but can work as a feature if you hang attractive bags, scarves, coats etc.
The ones on the right are vintage shoe forms - brilliant!

I love this art piece created by a collection of old board games & dart boards

Write your favourite lyrics or quote using washi tape, or get creative
- this old bed frame has been turned into a way to display photos and post cards

One of my favourite ideas - attach baskets to the wall as a form of shelving

There is a bit of an art to grouping photos & cards together,
but if you can nail it (not literally), it can look fantastic

Think outside the square - turn old racquets into mirrors

A collection of colourful pictures printed out and layered looks gorgeous

Wallpaper samples and off-cuts can also look lovely when layered over one another

Group small images - on the left is snippets of children's art,
and on the right a collection of beautiful skies makes a stunning piece of art

Another example of a successful grouping

I love this simple wall shelf with various frames and letters layered
