Walls need not be boring. Not anymore! The walls of your home can be transformed with the right wallpaper, or just the right colour, artful frames, and can also showcase your most priceless memories.
If you are thinking of photo frames to liven up that drab wall, we have some ideas. Mounting photo frames and art involves making more than just marginal changes to the walls by drilling holes or sticking hooks.
Instead of decorating the wall randomly, we recommend that you plan a theme before you start drilling into the walls.
Here is a list of the six most interesting wall decor ideas that you could try at home.
Black and white on canvas
This one is for special photos that will continue to have a timeless appeal throughout your life. A collage of black and white photos printed on canvas can seamlessly blend the most special moments of your life into a single mosaic.
Depending on how personal it is, this collage can either grace the walls of your living room or cosy up your bedroom walls.
This collage contains photo frames with wide colourful margins. Since the margins seem more significant in these type of frames, you could use the collage to display DIY art, quotations or colourful magazine cut-outs.
This kind of collage is perfect for living rooms that have pastel walls and subdued colours, as it adds a pleasant burst of colours.
Don’t want to spend money on expensive photo frames? No worries! Just plan a montage of photos in plain frames and get creative with decals and stickers. Suitable for a more informal set of pictures, this is a great collage idea for both the living room and children’s bedroom.
Putting this collage together can be a great DIY activity that allows you to unleash your creativity.
Along the staircase
One of the most underutilised spaces in the house, the wall along the staircase can be a great area to put up photo-collages. If you have just started a family, consider creating a timeline or a chronological story through framed images.
The most casual photo collage idea mentioned so far in this post, Polaroid collages are a great pick for bohemian decor. If you feel the collage might look too casual and careless on your living room walls, display it in your bedroom, where it can be your own personal wall of memories.
Even if you don’t have actual Polaroid prints, you can make regular photos look like polaroid clicks to add that bohemian charm to your room.
If you have a huge family across generations, you might want to consider implementing this collage idea. Imagine creating a family tree on a wall using interesting photos! Isn’t this collage the perfect mix of formal and personal?
