Shares

Tired of your bare walls? How about adding quirky and catchy wall accents that will instantly upgrade the look of your space?

From old tennis racquets to spoons and forks, you'll never run out of options to choose from. Drop by A11 or Duodeco Studio to score some must-haves. Resurrection Furniture and Found Objects Gallery and Sifra Interiors and Objects have a couple of prized finds, too. If you're visiting the mall anytime soon -- you'll surely find one piece or two at SM Homeworld.

Here's a tip when buying pieces: “Haggling is permitted at most secondhand stores, but have a heart for young artists and don’t be cheap at art galleries," shares Pierra Calasanz-Labrador, writer, on trawling art and décor at thrift shops and indie galleries.

Picks by Dagny Madamba, Paula de Guzman, and Tala Singson. Photographed by Dairy Darilag and Dakila Angeles.
