As many of you who read this blog regularly will know, i’m a big believer in the feature wall – in fact, virtually every room in our home has one in some shape or form. Feature walls help focus the eye and they help create zones of visual interest in larger spaces. They also work in smaller spaces to create a sense of drama and what’s great is that you can work with paint, wallpaper or pictures to create a feature wall that shows off your style beautifully.
