The last few weeks I’ve been hunting down paraphernalia to go on the walls of our dining room. My only prerequisite was that it couldn’t be a bog standard picture frame. After creating multitudes of gallery walls I’ve got heaps of them about and to be honest I was getting a bit bored of plain black rectangles.
As far as wall decor goes our archives on RMS proved to be a great source of inspiration. Feast your eyes on all these ideas and I’ll end with my plan for the space. I apologise if like me, you got lost in a whole plethora of gorgeousness as I didn’t realise just how many homes we have in our archives.
Top marks go to Hayley Stuart for her ingenious use of wooden spoons on her kitchen wall.
For the ultimate in hunting lodge chic then you can’t go wrong with a pair of antlers. Rebecca has several pairs around her home and has this magnificent set in her snug room.
In our old house I started a wall of curios down an awkward chimney breast in the spare room. I never reached the bottom but liked collecting various treasures to put in place.
In Lisa’s kitchen the macrame hanging adds a glam boho edge to a scandi styled room.
Print Block Shelf
The vintage print block shelf in Katie’s living room is perfect for a slim space and can be dressed with any amount of mini trinkets. Equally it looks just as beautiful with just a few pieces to really show off the intricacies of the cubbies.
Charlotte is the queen of a quirky display and this adds so much personality to her ex-council house (I know, we couldn’t believe it either) with picture ledges and unconventional shelving.
In our spare room I’ve used the Desenio Poster Hanger as an inexpensive way to hang artwork. I toyed with this idea for the dining room too but as I have a hanging bus blind in there too I decided against it.
I love the prints Charlene has hanging in hers in the living room too. The palm print is on my wish-list.
Propped against a wall, Rebecca’s shutters are absolutely stunning and turn a blank wall into a focal point.
Also at Rebecca’s, we love how an old reclaimed scaffold boards has been brought back to life as a jewellery hanger. Perfect for a slim space in need of extra storage.
In the end I remembered I have a rabbit plate I bought from H&M many moons ago that used to hang over the sofa in our old house so I’m thinking of creating a wall of plates. I’ve got my eye on this vodka one from Rockett St George which I think would really work with the bar tray I have set up.
So that’s your lot. What do you put on your walls? Any other ideas you’d like to share?
