Wall decor is one of the most essential elements to the completion of a room. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Wall decor proves it. You can tell a lot about a person by the pictures they hang. Here are some design tips to help you hang the best pictures.
One simple starting tip for wall picture frames is always to start with the largest piece you have. Use it as your anchor or center and work around it as desired. The large picture frames act as the guideline. You can mark the space around them with a pencil while you hang each subsequent frame and erase the marks easily later.
Try non-traditional picture mounting or frames. There’s nothing wrong with adding a little interest or depth to the room. Frames that allow you to easily interchange the pictures within them are a blessing for the indecisive.
Your wall needs to be a little eclectic. Mix and match other wall décor around picture frames. Decorated plates, stencils, and canvas art add contrast to the wall but do not detract from the framed art or photos. Use uneven numbers in rows of pictures. Try scattering a few wooden picture frames slightly unevenly but in a pattern so it’s not haphazard.
For a unified theme, match the patterns of the art in the frames to the room. Use the color palette as inspiration. Try pairing the wall décor to other furniture or lighting. You can also reflect back the room by framing mirrors to add depth in small spaces. Do whatever it takes to create a cohesive and inviting atmosphere.
