Bring Out the Character of Your Walls
 
Your walls do so much more than just hold up the roof of your house; they also provide the perfect canvas to show off who you are through your decor. Whether you choose to wallpaper your walls or prefer to adorn them with stunning artwork, your walls play an important role in the decor of your home. Bupa Life Insurance recently selected us for our tips and advice about turning your house into a home that you and your family can be proud of.
 
Embrace the Lived-In Look
 
Long gone are the days when home design trends skewed more towards the display home variety. These days, it's all about having a house that actually looks like a home. This means that it should look like someone actually lives there, not like everything was carefully curated to create a perfect photograph, but that was never meant to actually be touched. After all, your family lives in your home, so it should be an enjoyable place to be!
 
Mix, Mix, Mix!
 
Don't worry about everything in your home being matching. The current trend is more towards the eclectic look. You want your home to be a true reflection of who you are, so put that stunning Moroccan tapestry next to that modern glass sculpture. There are no concrete rules as to what can and can't go together anymore. It's all about what appeals to you and makes you feel happy when you look at it. 
 
Experiment with Wallpaper
 
Wallpaper is one of the most versatile decorating tools you have at your disposal. You don't even have to wallpaper an entire room to make use of this material. Try creating a feature wall to create a focal point in a room. Wallpaper also works great to provide a unique detail above your kitchen backsplash. You can even cut a small piece of wallpaper and frame it as art! 
 
It may seem biased to say wallpaper is our must-have decorating product – but the benefits of wallpaper over other styling tools are endless! Check out our feature in the article by Bupa Life Insurance on 'How to Make Your House a Home'.
