• Love your walls

    A couple of years ago I noticed the embryonic start of what is now the extremely popular and fast moving trend for wall art. It started with stencils, stickers and posters, soon gathering momentum with blackboard paints, signage, wooden letters to spell out sayings, magnetic poster boards, paper cut animal motifs, ceramic birds (a twist on flying ducks), floral wall corsages and clusters of clocks. The point is, the trend adds a bit of fun and drama to the home. It won’t break the bank. It’s a temporary design feature, which can be removed when you feel like a change and it makes a great present for a friend. What’s not to love? My current favourite is this cluster of clocks, great for keeping tabs of world time zones and very apt as the clocks change shortly. Have a look at our Love your walls feature, pages 84-89, April issue (out now) and let us your know your wall art favourite.

      This makes me laugh! I am so drawn to clocks – I think they’re just beautiful – fascinating – happy – cozy! But I am horrific when it comes to timeliness – a cruelly ironic twist to my life. I’ve recently decided, though, that no matter how much I’m teased for it – I am going to collect clocks and have as many as I want in every room – even though they don’t help my procrastination one bit.

      I love this sweet wall display! =]
