In need of a creative corner? Or perhaps your living room is calling out for a feature wall? Creating statement walls can be a tricky task - you want your space to be cohesive, yet also still hold interest. Don't worry we've got you covered, let's delve into our tips and tricks on how to create a striking wall that is not only decorated beautifully, but styled with functional accessories too…

Choosing sustainable paint & paper

When it comes to creating a statement wall, selecting sustainable wallpaper is the first step towards an eco-friendly interior. Look for wallpapers made from recycled or responsibly sourced materials. Opt for brands that prioritise water-based inks and low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) content to ensure a healthier indoor environment. And choose paints and paper that utilise natural pigments derived from plants and minerals, offering a wide range of stunning colours without compromising the environment or your health.

Making a statement is subjective - so choose products that will last the test of time, make you smile and suits you needs in the space.

To create a truly remarkable statement wall, start with a statement wallpaper that serves as the backdrop for your wooden designs. Choose a design that speaks to your personality and complements your overall aesthetic. Whether it's a bold geometric pattern or a vibrant botanical print, the wallpaper sets the stage for the entire composition, creating a visually interesting environment. Once you have your statement wallpaper in place, it's time to unleash your creativity with vibrant paint. Choose bold and striking colours that contrast with the wallpaper and create a big impact, or opt for harmonising colours that tone well with the wallpaper for a cohesive visual impact.

Dress it up

Now that you have a sustainable canvas, it's time to introduce unique wooden designs and excitedly arranging the sustainable pieces on your statement wall. Experiment with different compositions and placements to find the perfect balance. Allow the natural curves and textures of our handcrafted pieces to interact with the patterns and colours of the wallpaper and paint.

Light it right

To enhance the impact of your statement wall, consider the role of lighting. Strategically placed wall lights or pendant lights can cast dramatic shadows, emphasising the textures and contours of the wooden designs and your statement wall. Introduce complementary accents such as plants, décor pieces, or carefully chosen furniture pieces that harmonise with the space, adding depth, and functionality, to the space.

Add lush layers

To truly breathe life into your statement wall, consider incorporating the beauty of nature with layered house plants. Plants not only add a touch of freshness but also create a connection between the organic wooden designs, statement wallpaper, or vibrant paint. Choose plants that thrive in your space's lighting conditions and complement the overall aesthetic. Consider ceiling hanging or wall mounted to create a stunning green backdrop that enhances the visual impact of your statement wall.
