There comes a time when every woman has to throw out her first-flat posters (even if you do still love Take That). That doesn't mean you have to live with plain white walls though, unless you're really into the minimalist look.
Decorative hangings take your walls from woe to wow in a snap. A tapestry hanging is the ideal way to showcase your new, grown up decor, adding a touch of class and glamour to any room. There are a range of different designs available, so you can find the ideal match for your space.
A garden design is ideal for adding an airy suggestion of light and space into a living room. A wall hanging will make a great addition to a gallery wall, which we all know is all the rage on Pinterest right now. Keep things classy by pairing it with some fine art prints. You can expand on the nature theme with a forest scene, or something along the lines of Monet's famous water lilies.
Alternatively, toughen up your bedroom with a grunge or abstract art print. It's the home design equivalent of leather jacket and some wicked winged eyeliner, except it's a lot easier than perfect than an even cat eye. Pair this block colour prints in vivid shades to keep your edge without making your walls too dark.
There are plenty of other things you can put on your walls if you don't fancy a tapestry though. If you've got green fingers, why not invest in a wall hanging planter or two, and create an urban jungle in your home? Something with draping leaves, like ivy or a spider plant would be ideal. After all, plants are easier to care for than pets or children; if you kill one, its easily - and cheaply - replaceable.
