* Planters and creepers

Living walls where the entire wall is covered with plants are a good idea. They are great for softening hard environments and can be planted with purely decorative plants or more practical herbs and vegetables.

Cheaper alternatives like wall-hung fabric planters are more versatile and you can add to them as your budget allows. Suitable plants include clematis, climbing roses, petrea and wisteria.

* Keeping it eco-friendly with brick walls

If you prefer a rustic look, you can go for antique furniture like rocking chairs and four-poster beds whereas If your interiors prefer a contemporary appeal, wood furniture with minimal lines would strike the deal for you.
