hey guys my room is in the attic, and although its done over, it still has all these slanted walls, what can i do with them? i find it hard to find decorations or wall hangings that suit it. i used to have random pictures up but then that looked too kiddish. and my room is a dark red and has a bohemian feel for it? Thanks

*sigh* Oh, slanted walls. I've had a love/hate relationship with them my whole life.

The best techniques I've discovered are really basic:

1. A large poster.

2. A bunch of prints all the same shape/size hung in rows.

It really sucks, 'cause you can't frame anything, unless you stick the frame directly to the walls, or use "L brackets". 

Another tactic, is to nail a hook into your wall, and then hang things off of it. If you're walls aren't uber steep, the angle shouldn't be too big of an issue.

Hope some of that was useful!  Smiley

why not try hanging a large piece of funky flowy fabric and letting it bow out just a bit?..depending on the location of the wall, of course. Or create your own design on fabric to make sure it will work well in the room. It could turn an aggravating space into a main focal point that looks wonderful. Just an idea.


I'm easily satisfied with the very best

I would hang some netting or some material over from the slant so that it falls down vertical. Maybe something meshy. Then I'd make it a taut (sp) as possible and hang lighter things from there, maybe string some ropelight around it and make it like a curtainish sort of thing. I can't explain it well, but maybe you understand.
