Wall Decor / July 21, 2018 / Sadie Brumfield.
Practical and pleasing to the eye, this oversized calendar is ideal for a family kitchen or personal office. Bikes as wall decor? Contemporary wood mounts look chic and hold the colorful bicycles in place. Think outside the box when it comes to salvaged pieces. Here, a railroad crossing sign adds vintage flair to an otherwise empty wall.
If you love the look of a gallery wall, but would also like to avoid the task of spacing and hanging everything just right, get a similar effect by using floating shelves and picture ledges. These unobtrusive shelves are easy to hang, try grouping two or three on a wall together. They are great for displaying a mix of framed photos and art alongside interesting items like small plants, carefully curated antique knickknacks, table clocks and stoneware vases.
Stand back a few feet and see if you like where it sits on the wall. Get artsy with this, maybe you want to hang your wall art slightly off center because there is a plant in the corner or a chair that will block some of it. Create a vignette, or setting, like the image above, where the art is part of the grouping and slightly off center.
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.
