Old school green chalkboards offer a vintage vibe that their counterparts can not match. The best part? You can change the look of your wall with some chalk and a little creativity. Dress up old portraits with ornate brass frames for a vintage inspired look. Pair the vintage wall decor with more modern pieces to achieve an overall eclectic feel.
Display a collection of art, photographs, or add wall hangings and other ephemera. Opt for simple, cohesive frames or bring in an array of ornate variations to mix things up. A tapestry or wall hanging can add color and pattern, as well as a sense of softness to a space. Consider framing vintage scarves or other pretty textiles. It is a lot easier to move than framed paintings when it comes time to head to your next home.
You could also find a wonderful art print or oversized mirror framed in reclaimed wood or metal. Large pieces like these not only make short work of large walls, they are also excellent conversation starters and can even lend added drama to a room when they cast shadows at certain times of day. Another tip is to hang similar objects in pairs or triptychs. After all, three prints are better than one when it comes to large walls.
Hit the thrift store and look for unexpected pieces to frame. Here, European grain sacks make a striking visual impact when framed and paired in three.
