No More Boring Walls

When I first started in this business, I worked in our NYC store. Many of my clients faced the challenge of having limited space. Because of this, I learned early on to pay attention to the walls as a way to maximize their space. I am always on the hunt for cool and different ideas to decorate walls that will make a statement and make good use of some very valuable space.

One of my favorite easy and inexpensive looks is using empty frames in a collage arrangement. This collection of shabby chic vintage frames in varying shapes would add interest to any wall. The more the merrier!

For the hipper parent, this look rocks in a music lover’s playroom or kid’s bedroom. Framed vintage album covers are a great way to expose our kids to “good music” while putting those old albums to good use.

Everyone loves using letters to spell a child’s name or to put up a favorite saying, but I think this idea of a wacky alphabet using different textures, sizes and objects is brilliant. We’ve even seen a couple uses of this technique in the Project Nursery gallery.

When I hear of a creative way to put up cute pics of your little one (beyond your basic frame), I’m always intrigued. These silhouettes by Jennifer Delonge are simple, adorable, modern and fresh; this is a fun way to show off your little one’s perfect profile.Baby Silhouette

    Ahh, there’s just so much one can do with bare walls. Walls are one part of the home that’s just teeming with creative possibilities. :)

    I just love walls lined with frames of different shapes and sizes. And it’s really great that at this age, we have stick-on hooks to hang frames on. We don’t have to worry about pockmarks on our walls!

    You know what we have something in common we both love to hunt for cool and different ideas to decorate walls that will make a statement and make good use of some very valuable space, you said it right. For me boring walls are very odd and I don’t want that to happen also. I am considering you art works here are great ideas that you have shared when you post this stuff.
