While spending more time staying at home- why not make something motivating or create a relaxing place where you can feel nurtured and grounded.

Life within the confines of four walls isn’t always the most inspiring, but a little personality onto your walls can do.

According to Laura Anderson, PR and Social Manager at La Redoute:

“Wall hangings are not only a great feature piece for a room but can work alongside existing wall art – they are an accessible and affordable way to add instant colour, texture and style to a room.”

Katie Wagstaff, product designer and founder of homeware and gift brand Oh Squirrel, agrees adding:

"Banners and textiles hangings are a great way to add a bit of interest and texture to a wall. They work well for renters as you can make a big impact on a room without causing longterm damage, and when you come to move you can take it with you.

Your design will say a lot about your personality, adding a splash of vintage charm can do wonders in conveying an inspiration in setting mood for the space.

Hand-woven tapestries, fringed pieces, graphic prints and vintage banner style hangings are among the top trends to look out for.

Katy Casey, an interior designer, maker and owner of Make Waves Studio in Folkestone, Kent, explained:

“The popularity of textured wall art goes hand-in-hand with the boho, vintage and handmade trends. Blousy florals, seventies knotting, tapestry and naturalistic salvage,”

“We've responded to minimalism with maximalism. From grey matte paint with dark walls and raw yarn to fast-track lifestyles with slow-lane crafts.”

Throwing slogans up on the wall is also an alternative- making it feel homelier, inspiring and more personalised to you.

Casey said:

“Slogan art has always been popular, particularly as a subversive response to advertising and propaganda,”

“Slogan T-shirts were popular in 1980s and 1990s for this reason, but with home design having a sojourn – not least because of Instagram and 'normal' people gaining accolade for their style – the slogans have shifted to the wall with rude, romantic or comic references.”

She added:

“We are going to be seeing our own four walls a lot more in the coming months, better they be encouragement than empty.”
