So, you’ve got a big bare wall and you’re not quite sure what to do with it, and now the dilemma is bugging you on an almost daily basis. Friends, you do not need to live like this. There are options and we’re gonna give ’em to you. Standby for seven fun (and super easy) ways to dress up your walls…
1. Wall stickers
Great for renters because they don’t require any hooks to be drilled in the wall and they peel right off when it’s time to get your bond back, stickers are a simple yet bold way to give your walls a little somethin’ somethin’. Whether you want to cover a wall in a tiny crosses or create more of a statement artwork feel, these guys get the job done.
If you’re a wiz with the ol’ Canon, then we say frame your own work. But if you’re more inclined to feature blurry thumbs in your photographs, you might have to outsource the camerawork. Just find a style to match your style.
Not sure you can find an artwork that really ‘says’ what you want it to? These typography prints will put it out there loud and clear. Just choose your vibe: Will it be, ‘These French lessons are really teaching me a lot’, ‘I love to travel and also I’m a minimalist’ or ‘IDGAF’?
4. Black and white
Your whole wardrobe is monochrome and your idea of colour is the birchwood on your dining table. Don’t bother with all that bright, colourful art – we both know that stuff is not for you.
Artwork that doubles as a geography lesson – now that’s just good sense. Imagine the trivia you will ace after staring at a map of the world in the ad breaks for Googlebox…
6. Wall hangings
‘Something a little bit different’ is the brief you’d give your interior designer (if you could afford one). And we reckon these wooden wall hangings, star constellation map, cotton weave and 3D contour map fit the bill perfectly. Who needs hired help?
7. Big and bold
There’s nothing sadder than a tiny framed print on a giant wall (except maybe every episode of This Is Us that we’ve watched so far…), so if you’ve got a big space, you’re gonna need a whopper of an art piece. Doesn’t have to mean saying adios to all your $$ though…
