Want to update your interior? A home art gallery will help add fresh impressions. Here are ten ideas and tips to help you hang your art beautifully on your wall.
TIP 1: THINK BIG
A full wall gallery? Why not! Let’s play for big! Do not be afraid to mix different types of art in one collage: modern graphics, paintings, colorful posters, retro photographs, children’s drawings – all this will help to give your interior individuality and uniqueness.
TIP 2: STRICT BLACK AND WHITE
A wall decorated with black and white photographs looks elegant and brings a sophisticated retro feel to the interior. With this decor, your interior immediately takes on a stylish minimalist look and makes you want to revisit the classics of Hollywood cinema with Audrey Hepburn or Gracie Kelly.
TIP 3: CREATIVE PAIR
A beautiful collage on the wall does not always require a large number of paintings. If you prefer minimalism, then you can limit yourself to two works, hanging them at different heights. And to complement the composition with a beautiful still life of vases and decorative objects on the sideboard: it will turn out simply and stylishly.
TIP 4: IN THE HEAD OF THE CORNER
Empty corners in a room can be filled with art using a corner hanging, which allows your art gallery to stretch from wall to wall, creating a cohesive look. Try to find a song that you like. The easiest way is to cut out sheets of wallpaper or newspapers in the same format as your paintings and “fit” on the wall. Also, you can always use the IKEA wall collage planner.
TIP 5: FASHIONABLE TONE TO TONE
Do you like calm interiors, where there are many natural materials and warm beige shades prevail? Then we advise you to use a fashionable “tone on tone” technique and choose paintings in white and beige shades with brown accents for wall decoration. Frames made of light wood or cardboard mat will help to complement the monochrome look.
TIP 6: BEAUTY IN VARIETY
Create dynamics on the wall by mixing works of different formats in your collage. Start with the largest one (or two) and then spread the small to medium sizes around the frame. This way of hanging allows you to replenish your gallery without having to outweigh the paintings.
TIP 7: THEMED SHOW
A general theme can make it easy to create a beautiful collage on the wall. Choose what is close to you: it can be art, food, children or travel, or just works, united by the same scale. The main thing is that they look organically together and create exactly the mood that you need.
TIP 8: HOT MIX
The artwork in your gallery on the wall does not have to have the same frames. Of course, a single, unified look for your works of art is always a safe bet, but sometimes it’s worth a little hooliganism and taking risks. Try to create a vibrant mix of materials, colors and frame styles. If such experiments are not to your liking, you can take simple wooden frames as a basis, diluting them with several non-standard models – this will give your art wall liveliness and uniqueness.
TIP 9: FOLLOWING MY MEMORY
Let your collage on the wall remind you of your best travels or the places you would like to visit. Feel free to combine your own photos with beautiful posters to create a beautiful collage.
TIP 10: YES THERE IS COLOR!
But what if you try to abandon the white walls? A good idea for a bright interior with a spectacular collage. The main thing is that the colors in the paintings or photographs do not fight with the color of the walls, but, on the contrary, enter into a fascinating dialogue with it.
