Wall Decor / July 9, 2018 / Belen Forte.
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.
Check out these great examples of wall decor ideas for inspiration. So, you recently moved into a new place, and you finally have your furniture arranged exactly how you want it. You placed your decorative accents and hung the few pieces of art you own. But every time you sit down to relax on the sofa, those big, blank walls taunt you with their unforgivable boringness.
Gallery owners and museum curators, however, swear by the 60 inches on center rule. This means that you measure up 60 inches from the ground to find the spot where the center of a piece of art should be on the wall. It works well in many situations, but there are some cases when you may want to alter the height, if you are shorter than the average person, try 57 inches on center, if the art work is an unusual size or shape that looks unnatural at that height.
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.
