Learning the art of display makes the difference between practical storage and a beautiful feature. Here’s how to make your bookshelves Instaworthy. Do not overcrowd the space, choose accessories in the same colour and tone and group together in odd numbers. Use books as objects and exhibit them both horizontally and vertically for interest. Aim for two-thirds books, one-third accessories and make sure to include either plants, foliage or flowers too.
Wooden wall panels aren’t just for period properties. This decorative feature adds character and texture to contemporary homes too and is a growing trend. What’s more, it may look expensive but budget versions made from wood alternatives like fibreboard and OSB are super cheap and, once mounted, can hide wall surfaces that have seen better days. Tongue and groove panels make rustic schemes warm and cosy while framed and mid-height styles suit traditional looks and create a refined finish. Paint the panels in bold or muted tones for up-to-date appeal.
