5 Wall Decor Ideas

Are you looking for something different to decorate your walls other than family portraits and pictures? Something more novel, a bit of a talking point? Maybe you want something more in keeping with a room's theme and design than a painting can lend?  Or maybe you're decorating a property to rent or to sell and want something less personal and more appealing to a wider audience?

There are plenty of other ways to add interest and substance to plain walls than prints or photos, and Graham and Brown is a great place to start.  Better know for their wallpaper designs, they now have a whole section on their website dedicated to wall art at affordable prices.

Here are my five favourites:

Castle Key (currently reduced to £16)

This large solid metal key will add a touch of romance and fairy-tale to your home.  Sized at around 17 inches long, it will add a statement above your dressing table, hall console or in your washroom.  Because it's cast metal you could also mount it on exterior walls.

The concealed fixing brackets give it a clean look when mounted, and it stands proud of the wall giving depth and dimension.  It can be fixed either horizontally or vertically.

The metal casting is good quality and I think this is a great price for this whimsy wall decoration.

Birds on a Wire (currently reduced to £16)

For a more contemporary' crafted look, this wired bird design will bring life to the most neutral of walls.  It's chirpy and fun, I may get one for over my desk to remind me to 'tweet more often'!

Fretwork Mirror (currently reduced to £80)

More of an investment, but we all need mirrors right?  Not only are they essential for checking our lippy as we dash out the door, but they bring light and space to a room.  This fretwork design will bring a touch of faded Moroccan grandeur to your home.  

Tia Sequin Art by Monsoon (currently £40)

This stunning sequin artwork will add Eastern promise to your home.  Graham and Brown's collaboration with Monsoon brings us this intricately embellished piece which will bounce light around.  The gold abstract design will bring a touch of exotic opulence to any room.

Map Art Letters (currently £28)

Offering vintage style to those with wanderlust, you can plot your next vacation with this wall art.  Neutral colours mean it will fit with most decors.  The bold type font, perfect for those who love typography art and these letters can be used free standing or wall mounted.

So which is your favourite?  What do you have adorning your walls?

Disclosure: Thank you to Graham & Brown for sending me the Castle Key for the purposes of this review.


  1. We are currently revamping our house and I LOVE LOVE LOVE that Castle Key! I need it in my life!

  2. I often look at wall art and wonder where I'd put it because I have lots of pictures that I've brought back from various countries in my travelling days. I haven't seen pieces like these before and am quite impressed by them. I particularly like those birds and the maps, but then I love Monsoon. Decisions, eh? X

  3. Oh I love the birds, I've just the spot for those. Great round up :)

  4. What a fantastic idea! I am absolutely useless with frames and putting them up... so other options are always something to look into! :) x

  5. I too love that Castle key - especially after reading on another blog about looking around a palace - would make great anniversary gifts together.

  6. I love the map letters, they're a lovely DIY project too. You could make them with places really special to you and then they'd be a lovely unique present for someone x

  7. I love those birds - they would look lush in my potting shed - when I get one SOON! *excited face*
