Put it in a Frame

Back from holiday and itching to get back to the house to start working on those not-quite-there bits that have been annoying me (most notably our lack of a kitchen floor, which after a visit from the builder yesterday will hopefully be in very soon). Another area that I want to focus on this month is our huge bare wall in the dining room, which currently only has a blue-tacked-on New York City map. So to inspire and help me I have searched out some interesting ways to arrange frames.....

1. Grid and order a collection of frames, changing the colours and sizes of the frames. Design Sponge

2. To jazz up shelves or for if you're renting and can't knock in nails where ever you want, stack frames instead, adding in trinkets and odd items to personalise. SF Girl by Bay

3. Don't be afraid to hang photos frames all the way down to the floor. Note: lusting after the zig-zag wallpaper! Apartment Therapy

4. Scrap the photographs. Replace with colourful, weird and whacky illustrations, drawings, posters and paintings. Red

5. Mix in mirrors with photo frames like these circular ones to add shape and break the angles. Kate Spade NY

6. Or keep in simple with standard black frames (best place for these is Ikea where they are cheap as chips) using minimal colour in the photos to make a modern statement. The Design Files

7. Different sizes, all with a thin black frame brings everything together and focuses the eye on whats in the frame rather than the frame itself. Plush Palate

8. Tightly pack together a variety of different coloured, textured and sized frames in a diamond-turing-oval shape for an amazing, statement wall. Pinterest


Here is the offending wall, only perked up with my new circus lights from 'Lights4Fun' that I have hung very roughly for now but will eventually arrange around all the frames I'm going to put up.
