Large Metal Peace Sign Wall Decor – If you like classic style decorating then consider hanging a number of your collections around the wall. Walls create a great “service” not only for pictures but three-dimensional objects also. Hanging pictures and collectibles is catchy, but as soon as you let yourself experiment you can have a ball producing exciting displays. Unless an item is big or a painting is notable, one small image hung by itself seems lonely. Pairs and groupings operate better. Mounting them in a lineup gave the room a more contemporary look. You could also stack pictures two on top and two at the bottom or other combinations of numbers.
When things share some thing in common they form a pleasant outfit. 1 collector showed me how she grouped dozens of classic wedding pictures of different couples together. Since each one the photographs needed a theme to them, they formed an intriguing collection. The brown tone of all of these antique photos served to organize the collection providing a harmonious visual presentation. Another avid collector of 1950’s ” Paint By Number” pictures coated his counseling office wall along with his assortment of these funky colorful framed retro art bits.
Many whimsical collectibles are found at flea markets and also make for interesting “art” when displayed in groups. A large selection of small flea market paintings with different frames can work well if the general look is a wall full of similar sized frames. Within this formation, you’re spacing pictures equally apart but organizing them together as you would a jigsaw puzzle.
This type of mounting works nicely on the walls bordering staircases. Three-dimensional objects could be included in a deep plexiglass shadow box frame and mounted on the wall. Old seats, boxes, mini dressers can also be utilized as “shelves” and hung on walls to display images and other interesting finds. You do not have to adhere to one “style” or design period. It’s always exciting to mix up the look. Add classic to urban or modern chic to antique.
Older objects and pictures warm-up rooms, while more contemporary accessories offer a clean crisp look. Insert the sudden to your walls and sit back an enjoy your design work. The best aspect of wall decor is it can be altered so easily whenever you’re prepared for a new idea.
