So you have amassed a little art collection for yourself, huh? Well done, you! But maybe you’re stuck on how to display your finds.. Creating “art walls” in your space will allow you to stylishly show off your favorites.
One of my favorite things about art walls also known as hanging art “salon style” is how flexible the arrangement is. It’s a gathering of artwork you love, so there are no set rules. As in the graphic arrangement above, you can group artwork with like elements. Above, the simple, black graphics are the unifying factor.
Or, use frames in all the same color to unify your favorites. All white or black frames ( or gold, silver, wood, whatever! ) will create an instantly well-designed, intentional feel to your collection.
For a more traditional or sleek look, you can go stream-lined and symmetrical. Hang works from the same series in a grid format for a clean, contemporary arrangement.
Or, just go loosey-goosey and have fun! Start with the largest piece, either in actual size or visual weight and work out from there. Lay your artwork on the floor and play with the configuration until it feels right.
Fill the wall as much..
.. or as little as you like!
