Try Mar­tyna’s de­sign tricks

Style at Home (UK) - - MIX AND MATCH -

CRE­ATE a GALLERY

Make a fo­cal point above a sofa, bed or large piece of fur­ni­ture with a gallery wall. Add va­ri­ety by us­ing a mix of framed pho­tos, dec­o­ra­tive prints and ty­pog­ra­phy, keep­ing to a uni­fied colour theme. de­se­nio has a clever fea­ture on its web­site that al­lows you to cre­ate dif­fer­ent ar­range­ments and see how well they work to­gether.

Fake it with bricks

Ex­posed brick­work is a great way to add warmth and char­ac­ter – cheat the ef­fect with faux brick wall­pa­per. Choose a style that com­ple­ments your home, whether it’s in­dus­trial-style red bricks, coun­try-look white­washed or rus­tic ex­posed stone. Stick to a small area such as one wall, in­side al­coves or on a chim­ney breast.

wow with wall STICK­ERS

Stick­ers are great for adding pat­tern and are an ideal so­lu­tion in rented prop­er­ties. For max im­pact, go for a large-scale de­sign used over one wall – these are usu­ally made up of sev­eral smaller stick­ers, so prac­tise with your lay­out first be­fore ap­ply­ing to the wall. Al­ter­na­tively, add just a touch of pat­tern with a let­ter­ing sticker.
