home: nice price [ affordable art ]

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)

Brighten up any room and bring the outdoors in with a choice of amazing leaf print wallpapers. So fresh and organic, we love bold prints of palm or monstera leaves and so many stores are offering great prints in various green shades, various degrees of boldness and size of leaf illustration. 

(Above picture from top left going clockwise : Mind The Gap Banana Leaves / Trouva £150 • Blue & Green Tropical Leaf / Murals Wallpaper from £25 • Monstera Leaves / WallFlora on Amazon from £23 • Christian Lacroix for Designers Guild Eden Roc Wallpaper / John Lewis £79 ) 

Effective for a statement feature wall with a fresh white interior, keeping it minimal but also incredible for a stronger multi wall look, mixed up with other large print patterns. – a strong trend this season.
