Story walls are a great way to capture these stories in your bedroom. What’s best, is that you can do this yourself. Gather photos of your family or children to trace their lives and accomplishments. Alternatively stick pages of a book on the wall and put together your favourite stories. Walls speak much and what better way for them to celebrate you and your family than this?

It is a similar kind of appeal that can spice up bedrooms. A little bit of embellishment, riot of colours, lots of accessories and what emerges is a delectable space to satiate our senses.
