Home Decor: What to hang on the walls?

That blank space on the wall beacons, what are you going to fill it with?

Deciding to go with either a picture or photograph is the first decision. Family photo’s are a lovely way of putting your life into context, remembering special days or family members that aren’t around. Too many images of your nearest and dearest can be a little overwhelming, especially in small spaces or rooms that need to have a sense of calm like the bedroom. In the bedroom I tend to opt for serene pieces of art that tone in with the rooms theme and colour scheme. Plus I hate that ‘eyes following you round the room’ feeling when I’m trying to sleep. I picked the picture above up last week from Dobbies but Not on the High Street has a great selection of unique prints and paintings.

And it doesn’t need to be a masterpiece either, just find a painting or print you like as inspiration and get started. So you may not be Monet but what does it matter? Here’s my attempt below.
