Wall Candy


Walls are increasingly doing the talking when it comes to the home, as we explore a taste of the latest flavour in wall candy.

Wall real-estate is what home decorators drool over. Blank can be boring – so an infinity of eye-catching ideas is taking over.

Grouping artwork looks stunning. Try arranging similar frames, portraits, vintage, animals, craft art, or a melange of everything you love. Small artworks together create a big effect. Forget the eye-level rule too. Embellish down to the floor and up to the rafters.

Decals are getting more dramatically creative, with larger-than-life vinyl motives taking over from passé inspirational quotes. They also come in patterns, creating the effect of out-there wall paper, which is easily removed.

Bold, colourful, simple shapes, and the quirky, fun and abstract, are now lining walls and gigantean canvas prints make stunning standalone features – gaze-worthy artwork is fixating.
