THE ART OF CREATING A PICTURE WALL: 5 TIPS THAT CAN HELP
January 9, 2014
Creating a picture wall can be a great way to fill a bare wall with everything from photos to art to memorabilia to wall sculptures. However, there is a very fine line between a nicely organized picture wall and a big mess.Things to keep in mind:
Have some kind of a structure or common theme. Choose one or more of the following: keep all of the frames the same, keep the frame colours the same, or limit yourself to two colours, use only black and white images, use only images of a certain colour, use similar frame sizes, use similar pieces; photographs, prints, paintings. Whatever it is, make sure that they have at least something in common.
You don’t have to cover an entire wall.
Lay your pattern out on the floor first before mounting it.
Space the images apart equally, closely together usually looks better than further apart. I usually allow 1″-1.5″.
