No desire for pins in the wall?Magnets to hold your paperwork in place will work just fine – and won’t ruin the paintwork and plaster. How does it work? This wall has been turned into a giant display board with magnetic plaster (yes, really), but you can achieve the same effect with magnetic paint – or just a very large magnetic board fixed to the wall.

Try a wall lightSimilarly, if you like the practicality of wired-in bedside or office lights, but your walls are already plastered and painted, then try this trick – an angled plug-in light that has the look of a wired-in number. With visible wires being very on-trend, this can easily be styled as part of your interiors scheme.Wonderful ways with wall lights

Get organisedThe wall in this office isn’t actually concrete, but it certainly looks like it is. In fact, the whole wall has been covered with magnetic plaster, which is ideal if you want to turn a large surface into a noticeboard. Have you used concrete in your own home? Or have you recreated the look with an alternative material? Share your ideas and experiences in the Comments below.

Plug in a wall lightWall lights can make a real difference to the ambience and functionality of a room. However, they require advance planning (not always easy), an electrician and, inevitably, a certain amount of upheaval.But, if you don’t want a lamp taking up table or floor space, there is a third way: the plug-in wall sconce, offering all the good looks of a wall light, but using a regular plug socket. With the industrial look fashionable at the moment, the trailing wire only adds to the chic look.If you want task lighting, seek out utilitarian-style metal lamps you can angle and swing.Find more wall lights that don’t need wiring in

Amanda Cochrane added this to Dream Houzz: Jo Linehan and Caroline Foran Design Their Fantasy Home18 Oct 2016

The home officeA hectic life working as freelance journalists combined with running their own website means creating a comfy and functional home office is key for both Linehan and Foran. Their website tackles common problems for renters, such as sourcing the best furniture for small-space living, and this tiny office provides lots of ideas that would squeeze into the smallest of properties. “We like to have a lot of inspiration around us while we work. We’ve also been converted to the power of a good houseplant – a little greenery goes a long way. Midcentury furniture always looks great and a 1950s bureau or a spray-painted filing cabinet would be perfect for optimum storage.”8 clever tips to steal from organised offices

Finished with magnetic plaster/wall paint, this wall is a great idea for a teen study area – perfect for an ever-changing display of school notes, invitations and the like.
