Putting together a home shouldn't be hard and it certainly shouldn't be expensive! One element that has caught my eye time and again is the concept of the picture wall/gallery. No, not talking museums or even the White House here...just making do with artwork you have on hand...your child's paintings, prints, botanicals, (framed fabric!), mirrors...basically anything you can group together.....it can be a cohesive group, bound by:
- Color (or lack of it i.e. b/w, monochromatic images),
- Frame shape (ovals, squares, rectangles, or a glorious conglomeration of angles and curves),
- Frame color (i.e. the frames are all one color and weight...while the art is all-over-the place).
- Subject matter/theme: i.e. botanicals, doors (one of the desi bloggers had put up an awesome post on this...if it was you, please let me know, and I'll link up to it!), birds, butterflies, airplanes, photographs. Too many to list. You get the picture, right? (pun totally intended! sorry..the ham in me....)
...Or a wild eclectic mass of interest.... Totally up to you. But whatever you do with it, its sure to liven up those walls!!!
Inspiration?!!? Here's some..........
