Picture wall inspiration

August 30, 2015

With fall slowly but surely approaching I have started to come out from my summer hibernation mode and thinking about what things I’d like to change at home. One project that has been on my to do list already for too long time now is our living room picture wall. Right now we have only one big frame on the wall behind the sofa and for some time I liked it like that way, but now I feel like wanting to add some more pieces there.

When starting to plan a picture wall there are many decisions to be made. First, it’s definitely what to display. At the moment I have A Rose is a rose is a rose print from One Must Dash on our living room wall and I like how it stands out on a white wall. One Must Dash has added two new graphic floral prints (here and here) to their collection recently which I really like. I think they would be perfect to complement the rose print, if only we had more wall space for many bigger prints… (We have sloped ceilings in living room and this means not much space for picture wall.) Also, I have thought to add some beautiful minimalist black and white photo art, for example something like the prints of fine art photography by talented Nicolas Bell. He has some really nice pieces in his collection like The Abyss Fisher or Velvet Sunrise to name a few of my favourites. Photo art is timeless and I like the idea of mixing it with more abstract graphic prints. I haven’t decided yet if I’d like to keep my picture wall completely monochrome or add some subtle color. For example some lighter shades of pink would be nice. Australian online prints store Yorkelee Prints has some nice abstract prints with dusty pink details in their collection, for example this one. They offer affordable wall art prints also for kids rooms.

For me, the hardest part is definitely deciding the layout. I don’t know why, but I’m afraid of making holes into walls. So I want to make it right. Currently I’m more towards asymmetrical and effortless arrangement of frames, but haven’t made the final decision yet. And when where’s a question of whether to choose similar frames or combine different ones… So there is a lot to think about and therefore don’t expect to see the result too early. I have very little time for thinking lately :)

Below are some of my favourite picture walls from my Pinterest board where I collect gallery wall inspiration. I hope you like them too!
