Try Martyna’s design tricks
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.
