Giant Safety Pin Wall Decor – If you enjoy vintage design decorating then look at hanging a number of your collections on the wall. Walls make a great “support” not just for images but three-dimensional objects as well. Hanging pictures and collectibles is catchy, but as soon as you let yourself experimentation you can have a ball creating exciting displays. Unless an object is big or a painting is prominent, one small image hung by itself seems lonely. Pairs and groupings work better. Mounting them at a lineup gave the room a more contemporary look. You could also pile images two on top and two at the underside or other combinations of numbers.
When things share something in common they form a pleasing ensemble. 1 collector showed me how she grouped dozens of vintage wedding pictures of different couples together. Since each one of the photographs needed a theme to them, they formed an interesting collection. The brownish tone of all of these antique photos served to arrange the collection providing a harmonious visual presentation. Another avid collector of 1950’s ” Paint By Number” pictures covered his counselling office wall along with his collection of these funky colorful framed retro art pieces.
Many whimsical collectibles can be found at flea markets and also make for interesting “art” when displayed in groups. A massive selection of small flea market paintings with various frames can work well if the overall look is a wall filled with similar sized frames. In this creation, you are projection images equally apart but arranging them as you would a jigsaw puzzle.
This type of mounting works well on the walls bordering staircases. Three-dimensional objects could be included in a deep plexiglass shadow box frame and mounted onto the wall. You do not need to adhere to a “style” or layout period. It is always exciting to mix up the look. Add vintage to urban or modern chic to antique.
Older objects and images warm-up rooms, while more contemporary accessories supply a clean crisp look. Insert the sudden to your walls and sit back an enjoy your layout work. The best aspect of wall decoration is that it can be altered so easily whenever you are ready for a new idea.
