it is said that variety is the spice of life

so why not spice up your walls with a variety of prints, paintings, and photographs?

In my opinion, bare walls = boring. An artwork display not only adds visual interest but it is the perfect place to show a little personality and introduce some color into a space. Here are some examples below:

While there might me A LOT going on, this display injects a huge dose of personality into the space. It also does a great job of maximizing the wall space in a room with really tall ceilings; low furniture (as pictured above) could have easily come across as miniscule in comparison to the ceiling height, but the artwork display keeps everything in balance.

Using different frames definitely gives any display an eclectic look.  The display above does a great job of keeping your eye moving from wall to wall.

While the previous example used a variety of frames to create an eclectic look, this interior uses matching frames on a grid and a distinct series of prints to create a display that is very traditional. I’ve recently seen a lot of displays like this in design magazines and t.v. commercials (Ethan Allen) and they all seem to use prints of antique gardens, maps, and buildings.

I love this Molteni&C ad. This artwork display helps make this den extra cozy.

This photo gallery does a great job of defining the eating area in this dine-in kitchen. While they’re only displaying one medium, the home-owner has used a variety of frames and backing in shades of black, white, and grey which are all unified by the black & white photography. Overall, the kitchen area & display do a great job of achieving a modern look with a country twist.
