Wall Art: What’s Your Style ?
May 12, 2010
Have you ever felt the frustration of a blank wall staring at you and you’re at a loss how to decorate it ? Me to! Where oh where do you begin? I’m staring at the blank wall in our living room with the same dilemma.
I’ve shopped my house and pulled all sorts of different artwork, frames, and artifacts together. Now, I am in the process of displaying it all in a cohesive way. I’ve been gathering inspiration and carefully observing different styles. Meanwhile, I thought I’d pose these questions to all of you:
1) Do you prefer a wall display that is balanced
through symmetry and/or repetition ?
2) Or does a salon style gallery wall appeal
to you ?
I’ve done symmetrical frame displays in my office and daughter’s room, but for my living room, I’m truly liking the appeal of a gallery or salon wall that looks collected over time.
And I do love this idea by Better Homes & Gardens to tape paper to the wall to test proportion and spacing before you start pounding holes !
Have you made a statement with art on a wall in your home ? Do you prefer a symmetrical grid like display, or a more asymmetrical and whimsical salon style gallery ? Got a link to a fabulous wall art display? Do share, I could use more inspiration while I tackle this project !
