WONDERWALLS: A COLLECTION OF UNIQUELY BEAUTIFUL WALL DESIGNS

Traditionally, people have all decorated bare walls with paintings or pictures, and found themselves quite out of any other creative ideas to fill those empty spots .But the sky's the limit when it comes to dressing up the walls. Thinking out of the box and experimenting with different materials can often bring about unexpected surprises. Good ones, I mean.

Sticking stuff onto walls used to be a pastime of kids and teenagers. You know those things: drawings, posters, magnets etc. But we adults are not about to lose out too - we're into newspapers, Post-Its and maps.


Avant-garde Japanese design firm Super Potato obviously hates the word 'conventional'. In fact I think they hate it, judging from the following images.

CPUs on the wall, anyone?


Don't throw away that Evian bottle just yet. You never know what other uses it'll have. Like build a feature wall with it?


Art and commerce come together in some 48 rooms at Arte Luise Kunsthotel. Markus Linnenbrink's seas of colorful stripes at the hotel's lobby and Room 302 give rise to "an inexplicable, comfortable airiness" while Kehl's Room 306 transports you right into a comic strip. See what a can of paint can do?


Dutch designer Jan Van Hoof shows how to create a wall out of old cut-up books during the Dutch Design Week earlier this month. Environmentalists will be overjoyed.

What a list! Super Potato is very innovative in their use of recycled materials indeed.

But I like the book wall most.

I might just have to plan a trip to Berlin and spend time in each room of that hotel...
