I mean, think about your wall decor.
Do you tend to gravitate toward the
when you’re buying wall decor?
Or, maybe you’ve had the
same art on your walls since
If that’s the case, it might be time to
take everything down and start from scratch.
Sometimes it’s not even necessary to buy all new
things to hang on your walls.
Sometimes, it’s just a matter of
how you place them.
HOW you display pictures
and wall decor
and say it…lazy).
If you don’t want your wall decor
‘Hi. I’m predictable and lazy”
then decide what you
want your wall decor to say about you.
I have a lot of collages in my house.
This collage is fun, because it’s just so random.
Adding the “R” and the “5” in the mix adds a little bit
of whimsy and surprise to the collage
(“R” is the initial of my last name
and “5” is the number of people in our family).
I think what this collage says is,
“Hi. I don’t take myself very seriously.
But, look at my cute kids!”
It works well for me.
I adore this collage from Pottery Barn!
It’s fun but sophisticated.
Sometimes your artwork might say something
and then throw a curve ball.
This grouping of artwork says,
“See…I have a serious side.”
But then you look closer and realize that the
art is really butterflies and moths.
Yeah…not so serious after all.
A little bit of refinement,
but a sense of humor.
That’s totally how my BFF’s describe me
all the time.
Especially the refined part.
This grouping says,
“Welcome to my house. I had to put a coat rack here
to hold your jacket…but I wanted it to look pretty.”
what guest wouldn’t love to
have such a greeting?
And sometimes, your collage will
say things that describe you perfectly!
This collage is one of my favorites in the house.
“This family is zany and silly! Come along for the ride!”
Tip: for a fun way to display your pictures, get a frame larger
than your photo. Rather than using a matte, use
scrapbook paper to create the look of a matte.
Just tape your picture on to the scrapbook paper,
frame, and voila!
Tip:hang expressions (like “giggle” or
“boys will be boys”)
with your pictures! It adds fun to your
collage and it’s unpredictable.
Tip: These frames all started out different colors.
I wanted a more unified look, so I
them all black. Don’t worry about the color of the frames
when you’re shopping! Find the SHAPE that you want,
then, spray paint them the color you want.
my favorite collage in my house:
My mirror collage.
Every.single.thing. on this wall was
bought at either thrift stores or garage sales!
Once again, they were all different colors
when I bought them, and then
spray painted them all the same color.
Even though the collage was
primarily mirrors, I didn’t want the
to be so predictable.
So, I added a plate here, an initial there…
just to mix it up a bit!
Your groupings don’t always have to be the same color!!!
In fact, if you want a more modern slant
then all of your frames should
be completely different colors!
So, take a long hard look at your wall decor.
Is it saying what you want it to
say about you?
If not, don’t be afraid to take things down
and make some changes!
Until next time,
