Decorating with Prints: A Quick Recap of Today’s Segment!!

In today’s segment, I teamed up with one of my favorite Charlotte Interior Design Bloggers, Emily Clark (blog) to bring you inspiration on getting your images UP & ON DISPLAY!  To watch the full segment click here-or just read the recap!!

 

There’s just no better way to say it!  Especially if you’re trying to fill a medium to large space!  The 8×10 (and even the 11×14) just won’t cut it.

MY FAVORITE SIZE CANVAS TO FILL A SPACE: 20X24

Designing a gallery wall?  Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Steer clear of hanging too many prints, that are too small, too close together

Keep the spacing of frames roughly 2 inches apart

Play around with new trends: white frames on a bold wall, colored mattes, cutout frames (layce custom frame featured in the segment)

IT’S OKAY TO: Mix black & whites with color images.  Add a canvas or two.  Choose action shots that infuse personality.  Add graphic prints, a small mirror, a large initial, a sentimental quote or note or something hand panted.  GET CREATIVE!!

THINK OUTSIDE THE FRAME

There are soooo many great ideas out there… especially on pinterest.  Here are a few links to some favorites {last three featured in the segment}:

I just wondered what you adhered the engineer print to and how do you hang it?

Thanks,
Amy
