Finding the perfect wall art for a bedroom can be tricky! How do you create a tranquil atmosphere without it becoming boring? Should you choose wallpaper for texture, a series of smaller artworks or one large piece for added impact?
In the Blue Disa, a two-bedroom cottage on the Johannesdal 1207 estate near Pniel outside Stellenbosch, a characterful old wall map takes pride of place. It was a vintage find that Dané Erwee, one of the co-owners, restored before using it to decorate the space. “What appealed to me is that the paper is so old that it actually looks like fabric,” says Dané.
