Create The Look You Want With A Wall Collage

 

Do you have a large, blank wall that you find yourself staring at and wondering what the heck to do with?  Sometimes it can be a bit daunting trying to figure out what to do with a large, wide or tall wall.   But, you’re not alone – it’s not really as unusual a dilemma as you might think and there are ways to tackle the challenge. 

One way of accomplishing a great look is by clustering items together to create one large piece of art – or a wall collage. Definition: a. An artistic composition of materials and objects pasted over a surface, often with unifying lines and color.  See below for some great examples:

By pairing these prints with this wall hanging above it gives this wall the visual width it needs to properly fill the space.

It’s an opportunity to be creative and put things together that you wouldn’t expect to see.

Like different textures and shapes…

You can create extra height this way…

Or extra width.

Isn’t this a great way to create the larger art form you’re looking for?

And, it helps with some difficult issues, too.

You can also use a wall collage to fill extra wall space around furniture.

It’s a great way to fill the space and create interest at the same time.

Have fun and give the “wall collage” a try in your own home.

Happy Decorating!

      Hi, Shelly, not sure where you are located, but this is from a store called Hemispheres Fine Furniture Gallery. They are located in several places in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The nice thing about them, if you don’t already know, is that they have 50% off sales on all their mirrors every couple weeks which makes them very affordable. Here’s their website address: http://www.hemispheres-us.com/.
