Steal These Designer's Ideas for Displaying Artwork

Happy Friday friends!
I've been working on an artwork project for a client, we've finally come up with
 a creative solution to a common problem that I can't wait to share with you...coming soon!
 Of course I had to do my research on Pinterest, and in doing so I came across
 several unique ideas I loved and thought you would too.    

It's all about doing something unexpected.

Weight your art at the bottom of the frame instead of the top, which is typical.
Use an oversized mat...really oversized mat.   

Andrew Brown - Veranda

Choose an unpredictable placement on the wall. 

Krista Ewart/Ruthie Sommers 
Photography - Douglas Friedman for House Beautiful

Display eclectic pieces from floor to ceiling, include an unusual shape frame.

Design & Photograpy Peter Fehrentz

Frame and paint a section of wall as a background for artwork. 

Albert Hadley

Use a collection of small frames for interest.

Display around furniture in an uncommon, asymmetrical arrangement. 

Lauren Liess

Hope you all have a wonderful three day weekend!

Love that first solution as an easy (easier) way to fill a large space.
Some great ideas!

Dana Frieling said...

Thanks, now I "need" a long, rectangular piece of art! ;) I wish custom framing wasn't so expensive. I'd have a house full of craziness if I could afford it!

I love the cascade look down the wall. Someone was just asking about gallery wall placement on a FB group that I'm in - this is a nice round up Pam!

Cindy Hattersley said...

The oversized matt with the picture towards the bottom is intriguing. It certainly works in the shot--don't know if I would be so brave as to position the picture there. I do love the oversized matt. It is a very smart use of space. Thanks for this post. It is very inspiring.

Congrats on Denver Broncos win. Going to the Super Bowl, WOO HOO.
I am from Miami, but I was rooting for those Broncos. Can't wait for Denver to take home the Super Bowl trophy. So well deserved.
