If you have any wallpaper leftover after decorating, use offcuts to create decorative wall art for another room. Pop it in a frame and hang on a plain wall for a decorative touch. Alternatively, create a patchwork feature wall with squares of different-patterned wallpaper samples.
Look out for vintage and second-hand plates in a variety of sizes and styles and group together on a wall for an eclectic vibe in a kitchen. Team with rustic wooden furniture and keep an eye out for other vintage accessories, like a printer’s tray, to display on your wall.

For a children’s room, add plenty of colour with a mix of bright prints mounted in a variety of frames. This is also a great way to display the kids’ drawings and paintings. Hang them together in a group to create a fantastic feature on a plain wall that can be added to over the years.
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money buying new frames, buy a couple of cans of spray paint in two or three colours and paint ones you already own so they match your bedroom scheme. Alternatively, decoupage with paper or go for gold or silver paint for a really glam feel.
