We love the wall of photos, art or frames. It remains to be seen how to go about it… The good idea? Choose a model that suits our interior, from the minimalist staging to the maximalist mix and match. Then copy it without complex for a custom-made arty wall!
1. A monochrome staging on the fireplace
What if we used frames for their graphic potential, rather than for their coaching role? With a series of frames in monochrome , all white, all black or why not all blue, we create a geometric installation as trendy as it is elegant above the fireplace … or elsewhere. There will always be time to add photos afterwards!
2. Chic rustic settings in the dining room
A staging of frames can also serve as a real decoration, and inexpensively, please. In a rustic dining room , mottled retro frames aligned on the wall have their effect, in particular with a hint of gold and another of weathered wood.
3. A plant scene at the head of the bed
In a plant version, the wall of frames is as simple as it is modern, since it suffices to frame exotic prints in a mix and match of black, white and wood frames. The good idea? Mix together photos, scraps of wallpaper, herbarium or even handwritten quotes.
4. A harmonious asymmetric mix and match
No need to bet on minimalism to create a harmonious setting in scene . A mix and match of frames of different sizes, materials and patterns without any symmetry works perfectly for family photos. The extra thing? Tie the set together with a theme of two or three colors, eg black, white and wood!
5. A design composition in a straight line
Ultra-decorative, ultra-design, a composition of black and white photos can be enough to highlight a wall. The good idea? Alternate horizontal and vertical format but harmonize the height of the frames and their style for a modern straight line effect, all the more successful on a dark colored wall.
6. A modern wall of black and white frames
Want a modern accent wall without repainting it? Easy, we put in scene a series of minimalist black or white frames . They are found at low prices in all decoration brands, just slip in a series of graphic images for a contemporary composition. The extra trick? We place a matching mirror or clock in the middle!
7. A staging aligned on a buffet
When we hesitate on the location of a wall of frames , a solution: we choose a detail on which to align it. Stair climb, moldings or even furniture, your choice! Above a designer sideboard with a touch of retro, the setting is perfect.
8. Creative composition in the office
In the office, a staging of executives should give pride of place to creativity. In other words ? We don’t hesitate to mix colors and materials, designs and quotes, photos and patterns, as long as the result inspires us. You can even slip in a clock and some post-it notes!
9. A wall of colorful frames framed by moldings
For those who are lucky enough to have moldings, this is the ideal location for a refined staging. And for the others, you can create moldings using glued sticks! We use the result as a frame for the composition … of frames. One more idea? Match the colors of the posters and frames to those of the decor.
10. A bohemian mix of frames and objects
Graphic, the wall of frames? Not necessarily. With a cheerfully asymmetrical composition of wood and black frames, a nice dose of white and a touch of craftsmanship, the result is as original as it is inspiring. It’s time to hang baskets, trays and cutting boards right in the middle of the frames!
11. A perfectly symmetrical, clean staging
For those who are intimidated by the wall of frames, we play it safe: a large central frame, others smaller but matched on each side and a symmetrical staging . As for the image? In the absence of family photos, we think of DIY: a single large image cut out with different framing.
12. An accumulation of recycled golden frames
Attention, DIY that has an effect: to boost the decoration of a wall, we recover a series of mismatched vintage frames , we spray everything with gold paint, all you have to do is hang them. On a light or dark wall, the result is original, stunning and above all, frankly elegant.
13. A simple and effective arty triptych
No need to play the mix and match or overaccumulation to achieve a successful staging of frames . On a large wall or in a hallway, three identical XXL frames aligned are enough to ensure harmony, even when framing very different works!
14. A wall of portraits on the stairs
Nothing could be simpler than creating a wall of frames on the stairs , just align them on the handrail. For the rest, we can play with the mixture with different sizes or the harmony with formats and assorted colors. Either way, the staircase is the perfect location for a portrait gallery!
15. A romantic staging of retro frames
The decor leans towards shabby chic, English cottage or country house? We find a series of retro frames rich in scrolls and moldings . Once repainted in the same soft or pastel color if necessary, they are sown on the wall without worrying about logic or symmetry, quite simply.
16. An association of frames in monochrome in the living room
Another tip for a successful installation of frames ? Harmonize the colors of the frames. The shades are almost unmistakable, and it can be a shades of blue or a mixture of all neutral shades, from white to black, with beiges and grays… or even a hint of silver!
17. An installation of suspended frames
To add a touch of originality to a rather simple staging of frames, why not change the snap mode ? With rope and hooks, two matching frames are enough to create a designer installation. And the system even allows you to remove the bottom to keep only the glass!
18. A mixture of half-hung, half-posed frames
To limit the number of holes in the wall, an accumulation of frames can also complete an installed installation. We use the top of a piece of furniture to create a scene, all that remains is to complete it by surrounding it with other matching frames, it’s done!
19. A staging of frames like a herbarium
An idea that gives style to any room? Accumulate bottomless frames on an accent wall, varying in size or not but looking to match. Whether you place a photo or better, dried herbs, with white frames like wood, the result takes advantage of the wall with elegance!
20. A modular wall of frames!
When you like to change your decor regularly, the irremovable wall of frames can be scary. The solution ? Cornices, those narrow shelves to hang on the walls. We align the frames, we change them according to the mood and we insert without hesitation trinkets, candles, mirrors or clocks!
