home: trend [ wall decor ]
Continuing in 2019, is the love for alternative wall art.
Not framed work, not prints, not original paintings – but creative visual pieces with colour and texture and a unique feeling that you might have picked it up at a craft fair, a market whilst travelling the world or been handed it down through the family.
Shop at Anthropologie or Urban Outfitters for a gorgeous range of options but also online small designer market places like Trouva and Etsy.
Keep eyes pealed at car boot sales, charity shops and vintage markets as this is where the real gems can be found with the most appealing prices.
