If it’s got a hook on the back if it hang it! That’s the basic rule to follow, with wall decor taking on a new style.

We all love a picture wall, framed prints and photos filling a space. Nothing wrong with that, although now there is so much more to display on our walls including hanging rings, macrame, baskets and planters. It’s nothing new, but a trend emerging currently is to soften a room with neutral tones and add the hanging items with materials to compliment – woods, rope, and metals with an artisan feel, almost hand crafted.

Plants play a large part, so get some baskets or metal rings and play around with faux or real succulents to create a relaxing space – ivy is great for this.

Feathers are popular, whether in art work, embroidery or hanging decor with the softeness and intricate design bringing interest and calm to a space. 

Whatever you decide, the choice is out there. A great place to start is online marketplaces Trouva and Amara.
