Part of my goal this week while things are quiet around here is to get my act together on finishing up the apartment. I’d say I’m about 60% there right now. I’ve got quite a few pieces picked out that need to be ordered, and once those larger items are in it’ll be time to get down to the details… like how I’ll be arranging my walls.
My apartment has ample wall space for art, and I already have one large piece (this one from artaissance) that will likely go in the hall or bedroom, but I also have a collection of small art pieces and prints – some of which still need to be framed – and I’ve got to find just the right spot to put them all together…
To me, the key to this collective style is the framing. I prefer mine like the two spaces above: a collection of neutrals.
That way, even if the subjects are all different, or the colors or styles don’t necessarily match, there is some sort of consistency. And, I prefer a larger variety of sizes… but not too many tiny frames. It starts to feel cluttered to me. I’ll probably end up framing some of my smaller prints in larger mattes to take up a bit more space. Tomorrow I’ll lay them all out on the floor to see what I have and what I still need to fill in spaces!
Do you have a gallery wall in your home? What are your tips for making it work well?
