You don’t have to be a professional photographer to create a photo collage. Choose some favorite photos of you and your friends and family and display them on a blank wall.
There is no rule when it comes to the way you arrange your collage. This is the part where you can get creative. You can combine photos in a classic Rubik’s cube style, let them hang from threads or ribbons, splash them all around the wall or even create shapes such as hearts or popular clothesline.
2. Let the Creativity Flow with String Art
You can add a touch of glamour and sophistication by going for string art. This relatively new trend became wildly popular and can be seen in many cafes around cities.

You can create exciting pieces and symbols of different sizes and hang them as home signs or interesting pieces of art.
3. Hang Your Plants
Hanging plant baskets are an ideal way to create a fresh-looking, lively, and professional area. Their plants and flowers allow homes with no room for plants to still have some color and freshness.

If you are hanging baskets on a neutral-colored wall, pick bold-colored flowers that will lift up the room. For instance, combining violets, yellow begonias or lantana plants with white walls will make the space less dull and more attention-grabbing.
