Wall art doesn’t have to be a huge investment. We made each of these prints for just £22.50 by mounting hand-marbled paper in Ikea frames. Why not try the same? Use wallpaper scraps, or even wrapping paper found on sale at a stationery shop. Other bargains? The rattan chair is another Ikea find – just £80, while the vintage-looking blue glass bottles used as vases are just £10.50 (on sale) from Skandihome.

We live hard in living rooms. It’s where we entertain, relax in the evenings, watch TV, and do countless other activities each day. Yet when we get sick of our surroundings and need something different, it’s tough to make big changes in the context of our busy lives and small budgets. That’s when small, cheap tweaks come in handy.
