Not simply functional, treat your walls like an extension of your personality
Kate Houghton

SUBTLETY IS KEY

You can make a statement without going overboard on the colour. A repeat pattern in a two colour scheme delivers eye-catching interest without overwhelming the senses. Woodland wallpaper in vanilla, £69, fionahoward.com

PICTURE PERFECT

Your art should speak to your heart. Don’t choose pieces that match the room, choose pieces that sing. Photography is a sadly overlooked art form that can dazzle and delight in equal measure, bringing hot colours or cool shades to your space, and adding more than a hint of your personality. A-Frame House (2017), a photograph by Matt Stock, £3,193.98, artfinder.com

CLOCKING ON

Far from purely functional, a wall clock can stand for itself as the centrepiece for an otherwise empty wall. Or get creative and build it into a carefully curated gallery wall of artwork and photos collected from your favourite places – after all, time waits for no man and every moment should be spent wisely. Gold pleated clock, £48, audenza.com

TIME TO REFLECT

Mirrors, of course, reflect light around the room and expand the space too. Take the gallery wall approach and create greater interest with a collection of smaller mirrors, either in one style or a variety of shapes and sizes. Lusow mirror, £245, tomraffield.com
