To cover the double-volume wall in the living room of this bungalow, the owners have chosen a gallery-like feature wall to enliven the space. Adopting a minimalist look, the wall accommodates one treasured painting and just a few favourite vases acquired from their travels. The remaining mismatched picture frames are left intentionally blank. The interplay between light and dark, negative and positive space, all help to create balance and add proportion to the wall.


For homes where there’s no real delineation between the dining and living areas, the surrounding walls play an important role in ensuring design coherence. A feature wall can mark the two spaces as distinct, yet ensure the aesthetic of continuity.

For this apartment, the wall that connects the kitchen to the adjacent dining and living spaces is given a modern industrial touch to complement the sleek black countertops next to it. Open shelves are also installed, creating a lightweight decorative centrepiece that also serves as an eye-catching focal point when viewed from the living and dining rooms. 


The quickest way to create a strong feature wall is to use artwork. This time, however, you can do it a little differently. Instead of using paintings, try framing up different shades of wall colours next to each other— you’d be surprised by the result.
