floating wall shelves

Not everyone has room for a huge book case or custom shelving, and floating wall shelves are the ideal in between. Buy large, uniformly sized shelves like you see here, or opt for itty bitty versions that fit just a few books, a small frame, or miniature vase.

We love White Faux Taxidermy for their trendy, polyresin-made, collection of animals. Go classic with antlers or funky with the make believe unicorn.

baskets

Hanging shallow baskets is the bohemian version of hanging glossy plates. Pair with succulents for a jungalow-inspired space—and know you don’t have to hang this many to get the full effect. Two or three mixed in with your

gallery wall

will do the trick.

decorative diy design

Nailing (or even gluing!) a few pieces of thin wood together and painting in your color of choice is an easy way to create a fence-like structure that adds a serious element of interest to your wall. Plus, like shown here, you can hang a tiny succulent and other small items like your keys from the wall hanging.
