OFF THE WALL
Walls can be tricky. Do you paint them (hard if you're in rental accommodation), hang pictures on them (can get expensive) or leave them bare (a bit dull, frankly). Which is why we've sourced some of the best alternatives that allow you to bring some texture and talking points to your home, without breaking the bank (or your landlords patience).
Throw it together
Let's start with throws. They are a fantastic way to cover a large area and instantly lift a room. They're super easy to put up (trust us, you'll be amazed) and with the latest selection from Slowdown Studio, are right on the money design-wise.

As we said, it's surprisingly easy to hang your throw on the wall. You need a length of carpet gripper (from most local hardware stores or amazon) which you bang into the wall and hang your throw. Voila. Don't believe us? Have a watch here...
So these are pretty amazing, hand crafted in India from maple wood making each one unique. They add an instant touch of travel to any room and 3 can be hung alongside each other to from a triptych of fun.
Love in Bloom
These delicate porcelain vases create an instant talking point in any room. Easy to hang from a simple screw (or stood on the table with the stand provided), the vase looks incredible with just a few stems of dried flowers.
As the title suggests, we love these handmade silk and bamboo fans. Standing 70cm high they are large enough to make a big impression in any room and, the exquisite aubergine and mustard orange colourway goes with any background.
Heaven on Earth
OMG these are just adorable. Rattan crescent moons can be hung on the wall, or suspended from a light fitting, strung up for Christmas and special occasions or just propped on a sideboard. We don't care, we love them that much.
So there you have it, the best ways to make the most of your walls (including covering up any knocks and cracks) and create an instant talking point in your room.
