Hand Held Mirror Wall Decor – If you like classic design decorating then consider hanging some of your selections around the wall. Walls create a great “service” not just for images but three-dimensional objects also. Hanging pictures and collectibles is tricky, but once you let yourself experimentation you may have a ball creating exciting displays. Unless an item is big or a painting is notable, one small image hung by itself seems lonely. Pairs and groupings work better. Mounting them at a lineup gave the space a more contemporary look. You can also pile images two on top and two at the bottom or alternative combinations of numbers.
When things share some thing in common they form a pleasing ensemble. 1 collector showed me how she grouped dozens of classic wedding photos of different couples together. Since each one the photos needed a theme to them, they formed an intriguing collection. The brown tone of all these classic photos served to organize the collection providing a harmonious visual presentation. Another enthusiastic collector of 1950’s ” Paint By Number” photos covered his counselling office wall with his collection of these funky vibrant styled retro art pieces.
Many whimsical collectibles are found at flea markets and make for interesting “art” when displayed in groups. A large collection of small flea market paintings all with different frames may also work well if the overall look is a wall full of similar sized eyeglasses. In this creation, you are spacing pictures equally apart but arranging them as you would a jigsaw puzzle.
This type of mounting works nicely on the walls bordering staircases. Three-dimensional objects can be enclosed in a deep plexiglass shadow box frame and mounted onto the wall. You don’t need to stick to a “fashion” or layout period. It’s always exciting to mix up the look. Add classic to modern or urban chic to classic.
Older objects and images warm-up chambers, while more contemporary accessories offer a clean crisp look. Add the sudden to your walls and sit back an enjoy your layout work. The best part of wall decor is that it may be altered so easily whenever you are prepared for a brand new idea.
