Home visit: creative display ideas for each room

21 August 2017

Use creative displays to give your walls a new look without redecorating. Here are some inspiring ideas we’ve seen in homes around the world, from creating layered displays on top of cabinets to making your own flower bunting.

Clipboards on a wall above a desk.

Home office Create an inspiring workspace – hang clipboards above your desk to use as moodboards. Picture rails are another easy-to-update way to display your latest inspiration.

Bedroom Hang your next day’s outfit from hooks on the bedroom wall to save time in the morning. It also turns your clothes and accessories into pieces of art.

Bedroom Turn the top of a chest of drawers into a display by curating a collection of objects all in one colour. Jules scoured flea markets in Berlin for unusual white vases to add to her collection.

Kitchen Shelves can be beautiful as well as functional. Display your favourite crockery and colourful spices on open storage so you can enjoy seeing them every day.

Window Reconnect with nature by creating a living display in a window. Grow a window garden at different levels using macramé hangers, like Andreia’s in Portugal.

A gallery wall covered in Polaroid photos.

Living room Dedicate one whole wall to family photos to create a gallery of memories. At Kasia’s home in Poland, her wall of Polaroids reminds her sons of all the places they’ve visited.

Flowers hang from string above a dining table.

Dining room Create a new kind of bunting for your dining room by hanging flowers on a length of string. In London, Melia hangs the string then updates what she pegs on to it, to reflect her table setting.
