So you’ll need to buy a frame but finding a cool piece of art work for just a fiver is an incredible find. Hunting through the new home products at House of Fraser we find this gorgeous wrapping paper (3 metres for £5) that is so perfect it needs to be framed. Make a statement – find a great big frame (try the largest size in Ribba frame from Ikea or head to Desenio and pick one of their skinny profile frames) and cut the paper to size.
The pattern, the colour – it’s all on trend and would be perfect as a focus piece of art in a lounge or bedroom.
To ensure the paper stays smooth and flat, hunt out your local picture framers and ask them to ‘dry mount’ the paper to a board (this can cost around £20 for a 60×80 size piece)
It’s rich, but calming; readily available in homeware across the high street; easy to match up with similar hues in paint and wallpaper; and compliments well with other on trend favourites including metallic tones, monochrome or jewel tones – or you go true to the trend and have design braveness in having everything being in the teal colour! – a strong bold look.
For some people there is nothing better then a relaxing evening in a bath with a book and a glass of wine. Putting said book and wine somewhere safe isn’t always easy, so have you considered a bath caddy?
This practial addition to your bathroom is straight forward in construction made fully of wood [ cedar is a good choice ], and if you have the correct tools, simple to make.
