I've ignored the wall over the years, intimidated by the ladder issue (where would you put its feet, anyway?). So it has remained empty. A shame as it is a lovely space... for something. And since my boyfriend moved in, he's been sizing up the wall with fresh eyes: "Wouldn't it make a great gallery?" Yep. Though not before an artwork shopping spree first, and those things are best built slowly, not rushed into – like interior designers buying aesthetically pleasing books by the yard for clients: bleak.
But he also suggested a living wall or some hanging baskets, which could look amazing just, I began fantasising when I saw the Design Hunting warehouse flat above – houses simply feel happier when you can get some outdoors inside. And the spot is a total sun-trap so they'd flourish, in theory, even with my knack for plant-murder. But how, so high up, would we water the damn things? And if we went for hanging baskets over full-wall greenery, where or off what – precisely – to hang them?
Any suggestions for this – or, indeed, for other things we could do with this lavishly tall wall?
