8 tips for decorating your walls

Decorating your home entails more than placing furniture in the right places in a space. You can have the best furniture, carpets, window treatments and ornaments, but without anything on the walls it will remain a house, not a home.

Decorating your walls is just as vital as furniture, carpets and ornaments. The options are limitless and here are a few ideas to help you on your way to add sparkle to your walls.

Mirror Mirror on the wall

Hanging mirrors in your home is one of the elements recommended in Feng Shui (as long as it is not directly in front of a door or a mirror.

Placing mirrors strategically around the home will not only bring more light into the space, but also make the room seem bigger

Fine Art

Not all art pieces have to be bold and big, often simplicity is key to add a touch of sophistication to your room.

When your home is a collection of fine pieces and delicate decor, carry this theme through onto the walls and add a few strategically placed pencil / fine art pieces to complete the space.


Terrariums are all the latest craze, and if you are a fan of this tiny glass garden, why not also hang it on your walls.

Create your perfect terrarium and remember to follow the rules of three. Take a weathered piece of wood. Add three hooks onto the wood and hang on the wall. Carefully hang your terrariums, and there you have a one of a kind wall feature piece.

Turn over a new leaf

Gold will always remain a timeless colour for any room of the house. Add a touch of style and class to your space with a gold painted metal tree branch.

The simplicity of the piece is what makes it most striking. This comes back to the philosophy of "less is more".

All glits and glamour

Transform an ordinary room into a wonderland of fairy lights and glamour by simply stringing a few fairy lights from the ceiling to the floor.

This will make the ceiling feel higher and add romance or glamour to an plain room.

Earthly tones

Forests, fairies and mystical figures are not just for bedtime stories or fairy tales. You can bring this into your home in a tasteful way.

Sticks are not just for trees or the garden. Create a truly unique feature for your wall by framing a few sticks and adding fairy lights.

Write it on the wall

Add fun and interesting elements to your home and walls by mixing the items you hang on your walls.

The sky is the limit, you can add wooden words, photo frames and other miscellaneous items that fit in with your theme.

Put it on a shelf

Another way to add interesting items onto your walls is by adding shelves.

Shelves are extremely versatile, you can add books, photos, pictures, ornaments and any other interesting items you have collected on your travels or shopping sprees.
