Teenytinyhouse, I get your point. I rather like the obviously fake ones too. They aren't trying to pretend to be something they aren't. I have thought about a giant crocheted cacti myself. In fact, I've just been looking at a real one - cost £157. Hmmm - maybe crochet is the way to go! ;)

I have a couple of faux cacti and they look very realistic, until you stroke them when they are lovely and soft rather than prickly!

Yes agree about the fake plants... They look good from a distance but get closer...

Some super ideas here but I have a query... Boxed-in radiators can't surely give out the same heat?

Covering over wardrobe/cupboard doors and/or kitchen tiles is a great idea. I covered some of my kitchen cupboard doors with (removable) wheelie bin decorative panels and changed the handles. A bit limited with a Council kitchen. The floor has been tiled since this photo.
