BAS­KET CASE

Try a dis­play of bas­ket­ware on the wall. Go for a va­ri­ety of sizes, weaves and colours to add vis­ual in­ter­est, keep­ing them fairly shal­low. Start with the largest bas­ket, work­ing out­wards. For bas­kets with­out a han­dle, cre­ate hang­ing loops of fish­ing wire.

HALF AND HALF

To add colour to a room with­out com­mit­ting to a full-on scheme, try a half-and-half paint treat­ment. Start with white (or pale) walls, then paint the bot­tom third of the room, leav­ing the top two thirds un­painted. A darker colour at the bot­tom will make a room feel taller.

BRICK BY BRICK

Give rooms a rustic vibe by go­ing for ex­posed brick­work walls. It’s quite a bold look, so is best lim­ited to just one wall or a small sec­tion, such as a chim­ney breast or inside an al­cove, with white plas­ter on the ad­ja­cent walls. If you don’t have orig­i­nal brick­work to ex­pose, recre­ate the look us­ing brick slips.
