Make bare walls look appealing

New York: Banish those bare walls and use easily available items like plates, art and photos to make walls more interesting.

Go from boring to unbelievable with a few creative tricks:

* Hang plates: Display plates or flea-market finds in a space where art would feel cramped, such as in the corner of a large kitchen or along a lengthy corridor.

* Create a gallery: Let your wall express yourself. Choose art, prints, and photos that tell a story about people, places, or things in your life. If you`re hanging a grouping of art, maintaining two inches or more between frames on all sides is a good rule of thumb.

* Transform a stairway: Go beyond the living room wall and try out other spaces such as along a stairwell.

* Reinvent a corner: Bare white walls should have a chance to inspire you, too. Choose a grouping of inspiring items that work together. Mixing up shapes and sizes adds visual interest to the space.
