The frames on the wall, above all make it possible to make an interior lively and animated, especially if they contain photos, memories , posters that make us happy. If you like sober interiors, opt for black and white frames and photos, with agolden frame to make the room more elegant . If, on the contrary, you want to bring a little pep to your interior, do not hesitate to mix the colors, the styles, the materials!
A wall of frames immediately covers a room. But it is necessary to succeed in this installation, which is not that simple. Here are our ideas.
1. Dress up one of the walls in your living room
Painting one of the living room walls a different color is very fashionable these days. A neutral or bright color will set the tone for the entire room. To dress up this wall, anything is allowed: vacation photos for a personal touch, vintage or pop posters , paintings , .. Harmonize the photos and paintings with the entire room (sofa, lamp, table, etc.).
Choose frames that contrast with the background color : if the wall is beige, choose black or wood-colored frames; if it is dark, take white, chrome or even aluminum frames.

19. Add a “feel good” poster
Posters with positive messages are trendy and keep you smiling, even early in the morning. Toilets too often have a neglected decoration . A poster with a motivating, unusual or funny message will find its place perfectly in this place, which is mostly limited to its functional aspect, and will add a contemporary decorative touch.
20. Give character to the entrance with photo frames
The entrance hall is the first room in the house your guests experience, and the first impression is the most important! It is therefore necessary to take care of its decoration and make the space welcoming. Frames with family photos are a nice way to create a cozy atmosphere.
21. Collect the frames on a wall
For maximum effect in the room, surf the “accumulation” trend: paintings, engravings, photographs, postcards, frame your prettiest frames and accumulate them on an entire wall, from floor to ceiling, to create a very inspired merry mess. For an extra touch of madness, also consider varying the sizes of the frames. In short, give free rein to your inventiveness like an artist to make your piece spectacular.
22. Vary the sizes of your frames from one wall to another
To bring more volume to your room, take care to vary the size of your frames from one wall to another in order to create a very aesthetic imbalance. On the right, an XXL frame, on the left a smaller frame. Result: the room plays the disproportion to perfection and your walls are neither too wise nor too loaded. A perfect compromise!
23. Create a symmetrical shape with your frames
Do not hesitate to be more picky in your staging by defining a precise shape. Define the space on the wall on which you want to hang your frames, above a console or a desk for example. Then, take inspiration from the shape of the cabinet to create a set of frames in the shape of a rectangle or square, while making sure to space the frames between them. The result will be very chic!
24. Use frames in a hallway
If you’re worried about overloading a room with an entire wall of picture frames, consider investing in too often forgotten places like the hallway . This part of the house proving difficult to furnish, the walls turn out to be a nice alternative to decorate the place. To avoid the total look, a little too stuffy in this cramped space, you can counterbalance your wall decoration with lots of small frames on one side and a huge one on the other.
25. Combine frames and mirrors
You will understand the trend is towards the marriage of genres. For a mismatched touch in a room, no longer hesitate to bring together mirrors and frames on the same section of wall and especially to mix them. If they also have different shapes – square frames and round mirrors – it will be even more decorative!
26. Create a row of frames
Create a continuous and very visual effect by exploiting the angle of a room with a series of frames. The frames follow one another from one wall to another in a logical sequence like a frieze. You are free to vary the sizes of the frames to give even more volume to the whole. In addition to waking up your walls, this technique will allow you to exploit the angle of a room, which is generally difficult to decorate.
27. Place your frames on the ground
For an arty spirit, largely inspired by New York lofts, it is no longer a question of hanging only your frames on the wall, they must also be left on the floor … walls and decorate the lower part of the latter. To polish this staging, consider layering the frames on the floor or flip one or two. Guaranteed collector effect!
28. Keep only the frames
For a very arty effect, only keep the frames to decorate your walls. Obviously no question of keeping plastic frames without a soul, no. Only valuable frames with pretty gilding or weathered wood have the right to invest the walls. Place them on the floor or pile them up on the wall to create a rather surprising work of art.
29. Play on the color reminder
Use the wall color to define what you are going to frame. Example: on a yellow wall, take care to choose a frame with a touch of yellow. This will prevent you from sinking into a too colorful decor that multiplies the colors. Using just one color is often a guarantee of good taste.
30. Place your frames against the wall
The advantage with executives is that they can invest even the smallest amount of space. On a piece of furniture or a ledge, place your frames against the wall . Align them all along this surface and have fun varying the sizes so that your wall is decorated without having drilled the slightest hole, smart!

33. Heap of executives
Place a pile of frames on a chair rail or a console to perfectly complement your decor. To avoid the pizza effect, make sure to use a maximum of 2 to 3 colors in order to obtain a homogeneous result and to unify the style of your frames.
34. Recycling of utensils
Do you like to recycle and imitate the Pottery Barn style ? Here is a wall decorating idea for your kitchen that will get people talking.

For those who are nostalgic for this period of photos taken from life, bring a vintage touch to your decor by displaying your Polaroid photos in a frame. We all have an old frame somewhere with a broken window just begging to be reused. We affix ropes from side to side, then we hang our photos with pliers.
36. Shelf frames
