1. Create your own mood board

A noticeboard provides flexibility, so you can change your deco to suit the season or whatever’s inspiring you right now. Draw attention to your wall when night falls with atmospheric lighting such as the timeless SKURUP wall lamp for an industrial touch.

2. Mix and match photo frames

Dare to blend various styles of frames for your own unique look that’s playful too. Extend your art wall by using surfaces such as desks or drawers against the wall to display more items, making your gallery wall the room’s focal point.

3. Bring dead spaces to life

Find a plain wall in your home – corners next to windows are a great choice as they benefit from natural light. Hang rows of MOSSLANDA picture ledges on the wall, then add your favourite framed prints. Pair with neutral-coloured curtains to let your art wall do the talking.

4. Design some DIY art

You don’t have to be a skilled artist to paint your own art. Start by choosing a colour you like and play about painting different abstract shapes. Tape your finished masterpiece to the wall using washi tape so you can reposition and change your artwork without damaging your walls.

5. Make a modern display with storage

Kill two birds with one stone by using a smart pegboard to organise your home and decorate your wall at the same time. Add various accessories such as hooks, shelves and containers that are just as easy to remove and replace as they are to attach for maximum flexibility.

6. Save time with ready to hang art

Start by choosing a set of prints that illustrates something dear to you, here it’s travel. Arrange the pictures to create your own wall collage and display your knick-knacks and memorabilia that fit the theme in a classic glass cabinet such as this MILSBO one underneath.
