Anyone else have a place in their home they have completely neglected? I am completely guilty of leaving our master bedroom to the wayside because guests never make there way in there and we have other 'priority' rooms to decorate first. But when you think about it, why would you leave one of the most used rooms in your home barren?
Well enough is enough, this prego is in full nesting mode which means this house is getting DIYified and will be looking fabulous in no time!
This wall has been driving mad! We have this gorgeous dresser that has been completely lonely waiting years for the perfect piece of wall art or a mirror to hang above it. Rather than waiting to find the perfect vintage piece that is both super sized and fits our unique style, it was time to make something! Surprise Surprise, I decided to make an arrangement of my favorite Thistle & Poppy Picture Frames!
It only took a little bit of planning and within an hour this wall was completely refinished!
The best way to figure out a wall like this is to lay it out beforehand. Check out our blog post on How to Arrange A Photo Gallery Wall for great tips on how to easily arrange items on the wall. I also planned my frame color scheme ahead of time. I went with a brown/neutral and blue/navy color scheme. The other walls in this room match the blue in the frames and we have some fun orange textured curtains, so the neutrals paired nicely.
I selected a nice assortment of frames, starting with the large traditional open back frame in a custom blossom shape. From there, I arranged everything using that as a focal point. I selected a variety of picture frames with a variety of styles, including shaped frames, beveled frames, printed frames, distressed traditional frames, and even a couple ikea frames we had lying around! I think the mixture of old and new styles, creates a very modern look that is both stylish and gives a warm cottage chic feel.
The only other step in creating this arrangement was creating a balance. You will notice that the printed frames are scattered throughout the arrangement, helping move your eye across the wall. The same concept is what I used for the shaped picture frames. The main focus in creating a wall arrangement like this is to maintain a balance, keep from putting too many of any shape or color in just one area. It is important to create a flow so your eye can easily move across the wall.
