This wall art is an eclectic medley of media. But it all comes together beautifully when pieces relate to the whole. Each item harkens back to early American culture and homesteads. Courtesy of I Should Be Mopping the Floor.
A Bunch of Baskets
With their variety of designs and weaves, baskets can truly be works of art. They look great adorning the wall, but they’re also practical, too. In a second they can become fruit bowls.
Lovely plates like these shouldn't go unseen! Plus, hanging items with similar shapes and sizes like these rounded plates creates an impactful wall moment.
Black and white are colors too! Don’t be afraid to show off your love of antique finds with gorgeous throwback photos. Courtesy of Liz Marie
Sometimes frames are as beautiful as the art. For this curious collection of frames, the owner upcycled them with metallic paint.
Line Them Up
Occasionally a simple lineup of images is best. Arrange a horizontal display of your best prints from the same artist.
Around the Corner
Shelves, frames, candles, signs and photos—this wall has it all! Yet the display sticks with a unified color palette to keep the look fresh and uncluttered. We love how the gallery wraps around a corner.
Go for a theme. This gallery's focus on adventure is great for inspiring a love of exploration and learning. Pieces range from antique maps to gilded turtle shells.
This entryway utilizes straight angles to make the collection expansive without overpowering the eye. Pops of repeated symbols foster a unified look.
Florals never go out of fashion, and this collection of blooms with an odd antique or two tells a story with its use of similar hues. Browns and golds add warmth and pull in the empty letterpress tray.
Sketches and More
Even walls painted in darker pigments benefit from framed art. In this display, the owner selected sketches and prints because their delicate lines add patterns with a focus on minimalism.
Make a wall gallery that feels more like a museum gallery. Oil paintings of nature scenes are timeless and make elegant statement pieces.
Down by the Sea
This coastal themed wall gallery is breathtaking! We absolutely love the illusion of depth and 3D appeal of this display. Not to mention, it incorporates a stunning antique oil painting.
Some of these paintings may have been commissioned by pet owners. But even if you don't have one of these fur babies, you got to love the rich colors and sweet faces.
Add Some Length
Dare to decorate, whatever the wall’s size! Small spaces around stairs are some of the most overlooked. But little nooks have tons of potential. Hang longer pieces to enlarge the space. Courtesy of Liz Marie
Not all art comes in frames. Modern and old clocks mixed together in this wall gallery make a timely statement.
The owner of this wall gallery wanted to refresh her walls with a combination of contemporary prints and vintage pieces. The final result feels updated but classic at the same time.
S is for Style
Collect similar items and display them together for an even greater impact. The owner of this wall gallery used several larges S's with varying degrees of weathered style.
When framed, antique sketches of European destinations certainly add a cosmopolitan feel. Travel to fascinating cities without ever leaving home.
Prints, patterns and art in the same space can be stylistically very different, but if they are in the same color value, they look good together.
