Get inspired for your next decorating project by learning these 10 easy design hacks from Macomb County clever decorator, Marianne Porth from All around the House Interiors – located at 111 South Main Street in Downtown Romeo, MI.
1. Group Similar Pieces Together
A common design practice by many interior decorators is to group multiple pieces of artwork together that are almost identical. For example, create a diptych by hanging 2 pieces side by side, as shown below.
2. Create a Gallery out of Black and White Photography
Black and white photograohy provides a clean, bold and minimalistic look that never seems to go out of style. Create a gallery of 2 more more black and white photos to create a gallery wall. Use family pictures, places you have visited or any photos that you feel create a nice focal point.
3. Layer Multiple Pieces Together
Create a unique look by experimenting with different colors and textures and layering them together as in the photo below.
4. Lean Artwork Instead of Hanging it on the Wall
Leaning pictures and mirrors, instead of hanging them can create a casual yet elegant feel. This look works best with medium to large size pieces.
5. Use Frames to Create Your Own Artwork
Picture frames can hold more than just photos. Line the frames with wallpaper or framed letters.
6. Don’t Be Afraid to Use Color
Instead of choosing wood, black or white frames, paint your frames bright colors for a unique look. Just be sure your wall color is white or significantly lighter than the frame.
7. Go for the Natural Look
If your style is vintage or shabby chic, go for natural frames that are slightly rough around the edges to provide more of a rustic look.
8. Experiment with Shapes and Sizes
Unlike tip #1 where you place similar pieces together, try hanging different pieces together while keeping a theme.
9. Decorate Your Bookshelf
Add pictures and mirrors to your bookshelves or any other shelves in your home. The leaning of artwork we mentioned earlier works great on top of the shelves. Or place your pieces inside of the interior sections.
10. Repurpose Older Pieces
Why limit your decor to photos and mirrors when you can up-cycle and breathe new life into older pieces, such as these gorgeous antique window frames?
