“Creative Walls” by Geraldine James is a book for brave individuals, who love life and want to live it in style. Just a word of warning – it’s not a book for someone who enjoys cold minimalism, you have to be a real art connoisseur to enjoy this publication to its full.

In her book Geraldine James is asking you to become an artist – she challenges her readers to experiment and look at their walls as if they were “beautiful blank canvases”. Geraldine knows that any blank canvas can be quite daunting (no wonder in the classification of phobias you can find atekanevaphobia – fear of ruined canvases), but don’t you worry; this lady will give you lots of advice on where to start and how to achieve the best results.


The two most encouraging thoughts presented in this book are: 1. style is 100% personal and 2. you don’t need anyone’s approval, just be confident enough to expose your soul. Apparently “we all have a taste limit”, but does it matter, especially if you own some walls, that can be turned into masterpieces!?


Flick through the pages and find out how to display artwork, your quaintest collectibles and memories preserved in all kinds of forms: how to create casual, relaxed atmosphere, how to turn formal space into informal, how to combine several styles, how to make a small room look bigger and how to lighten up a dark room, even how to buy new items that you intend to add to your existing displays. “Creative Walls” is packed with advice that will help you to achieve amazing effects without hiring an interior designer.


Use this book as a source for inspiration and as a manual that doesn’t hold strict regulations. As Geraldine James says – “There are no rules. Use your imagination, look at your pictures carefully, push the boundaries, and create something that is individual and unique only to you.”

Creative Walls By Geraldine James is published by Cico Books at £19.99 and is available from
