Ideas for displays that add colour to your home
Display your favourite collections
Exhibit your collections
Arrange favourite books with the cover facing out. ‘My husband Robert loves design, so we’ve created a library just for him.’
Mix artwork with knick-knacks
Mix your media
For an eclectic display, use treasured keepsakes as well as pictures. ‘I love the bright colours and rounded shapes of retro design.’
Hangers make it easy to swap prints around
Hang your prints
Clip prints in hangers for an easy-to-change gallery. ‘If I want a new look, swapping pictures is far less effort than painting a wall!’
Get inspiration while you work
Create a workspace gallery wall
‘I find the collage over my desk energising,’ says Anikó. ‘Visually, it also defines this as a workspace within my open-plan home.’
Curate your kitchen
‘I want my kitchen to feel welcoming. I use the vintage frames as an ever-changing gallery and the bookshelf is for showing favourite crockery.’
Choose a colour theme
Stick (or twist) with a colour theme
‘I love monochrome and like using it as a colour scheme to pull different images and elements together.’

‘I like ideas that I can change with my mood. One day I like one colour, the next another. It’s nice to reflect that’
