Nothing says dull more than blank walls but it is so common that people hesitate when hanging artwork and family photos. How high? How low? Do the frames have to match? Soon, the artwork and family portraits are put in a closet or set aside for “another” day and voila you are left with vast walls just dying to be adorned. So today, I’ve gathered together some truly inspiring art and photos walls! They are striking, original and creative! Enjoy!

Maybe you are not one for hanging photos…no problem use shelves instead! I love how this is like a library of images.

Don’t be afraid to mix in other objects in your display. Sculptural elements add interest and texture.

No need for frames! Cluster similar snapshots together like this to make a real impact!

You don’t need expensive art to decorate your walls either! String up some twine and clip pretty postcards, magazine pages and other lovelies to your wall. This is wonderful as an installation above your work area. Just make sure it is full of inspiration…not receipts.

This is a wonderful wall and inexpensive to create. Using printed wallpaper or wrapping paper and inexpensive frames this look makes a real statement!

Another fun and thrifty way to create art for your walls – use pretty paper scraps and adhere them to craft plaques, which can be found at your local craft stores. For diy instructions go here.

Fill an entire wall with images for a dramatic gallery feel! The equal spacing makes the wall feel unified.
Okay, so are you feeling inspired? Think outside the box and don’t be afraid to tackle your own walls!
Have a fabulous day!
