Baby Sesame Street Wall Decor – If you enjoy vintage design decorating then look at hanging a number of your collections on the wall. Walls create a great “service” not only for pictures but three-dimensional objects also. Hanging pictures and graphics is tricky, but as soon as you let yourself experiment you can have a ball producing exciting displays. Unless an object is large or a painting is prominent, one little picture hung by itself looks lonely. Pairs and groupings work better. Mounting them in a lineup gave the room a more contemporary appearance. You could even pile pictures two on the top and two at the underside or alternative combinations of numbers.
When things share some thing in common they form a pleasant outfit. 1 collector showed me she grouped heaps of vintage wedding pictures of couples together. Since each one the photographs needed a subject to them, they formed an interesting collection. The brownish tone of all of these classic photos served to organize the collection providing a harmonious visual presentation. Another enthusiastic collector of 1950’s ” Paint By Number” pictures coated his counseling office wall along with his collection of those 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. Look at hanging vintage pocketbooks, bud covers, mirrors, toy shovels, keys, tin ceiling tiles etc.. A large selection of little flea market paintings with different frames can work well if the general appearance is a wall filled with similar sized frames. Within this creation, you are projection images equally apart but arranging 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 profound plexiglass shadow box frame and mounted onto the wall. You don’t have to stick to a “fashion” or design period. Add vintage to modern or urban chic to classic.
Older objects and pictures warm-up rooms, while more contemporary accessories offer a clean crisp look. Insert the unexpected to your own walls and sit back an enjoy your design work. The very best part of wall decoration is that it can be changed so easily whenever you are ready for a new idea.
