1. You don’t necessarily have to hang wall art, get creative. By placing big frames on the floor or smaller frames on a shelf…or a stack of books, they become decorative objects

2. When art is placed in direct sunlight it can become discoloured. So make sure you hang it in the right spot

3. Create a bold and expressive living room. Get a few artworks and mix things up by grouping them or creating a gallery wall. Artworks and frames don’t have to match, as combining multiple styles and mediums can work really well

4. Your bedroom should be a serene, calming space. Achieve this by picking complimentary colours. So choose bedding, pillows or accessories that match your artwork can make it all feel unified

5. Don’t let your home office be boring – it should be a space that motivates and inspires you. Combine colourful wall art with plants to add colour and personality
