Wall Decor

I often find that when decorating a modern space, one decision that can feel overwhelming is what to do for the wall decor. Do you hang a large piece of original art?

What about displaying a mirror or a grouping of wall mirrors? Though those are great options, sometimes our budget doesn't allow for it. Well lucky for us, there are some fresh options that can add fun character to your space.

Displaying a collection of your favorite cards, postcards, pictures and other paper items can create a modern gallery wall that has your personality written all over it. The top image features black and white pictures displayed randomly above a sideboard. Most of them are attached with tape, which makes for less holes. There's lots of fun patterned tape out there to choose from...

If you have a large selection of pictures that you want to show off, try this approach above by randomly displaying them a cork board, bulletin board or anything form of a frame. For a more dramatic look, display as many pictures as you can.

Thrift stores are full quirky art pieces. You can find profile art at almost any flea market/thrift store. Hang a collection of profile art in different sizes, colors and frames.

Have any chicken wire hanging around? Use a wired piece to place cards and picture cards in. Once you’ve gotten tired of one card, it’s easy to switch it out. And you don’t have to worry about tacks and nails.
