I promised you pictures of my new picture wall – so here we go!
After shuffling prints around for the last year, I finally decided to commit and hang them on the wall. I can still change the prints in the frames from time to time (and God knows I will), but for now I have settled on a constellation – and I like it! It’s a big wall so there are many big prints in between. After having a more minimalistic set up for the last year, this feels good.
For info and links on all the prints – please check below.
My best advice for making your own picture wall:
- Don’t be afraid of big prints. A big cluster of small prints easily looks messy. Mix it up.
- Don’t be afraid to go big. Use a whole wall like I did or a big portion of one to make a statement.
- Think about the colours on the prints. Decide on a solid base like black, white and grey and use a few complementary colours to add a pop.
- If you prefer a more colourful look, decide on a base colour like yellow and go from there – let the yellow be the thing that ties the prints together. If you use too many colours you risk an outcome that looks like a rainbow threw up on your wall.
- I chose an asymmetrical look for my wall. I like things that have personality and sticks out. It gives the finished look an edge and I love how you can play with shapes and the whole length of the wall.
- If you prefer a more neat look make sure the outline of the prints make a square.
Figuring out how to hang the frames is the most tricky part. I laid out all my frames on the floor and moved them around until I was happy with the result. Then – and first then – did I put nails in the wall. Use a spirit level on each and every photo to make sure it is straight. If you are anything like me a crooked picture will drive you crazy :) (All my frames are straight, although the angle in some of the photos make some of them look crocked.)
