Best of Wall Decoration: Framing & Arrangement Ideas

House Tours 2010

Whether your home has wall space galore — or if you're squeezing your walls for all they're worth — this past year we've seen some great inspiration for decorating the vertical surfaces of your home. These Apartment Therapy House Tours just might give you the courage you need to pick up your own hammer and nails and mix things up a bit.

Here are some arrangement styles you might try in your home:

  • Hang square-shaped portraits in LP record frames.
  • Line the walls of your stairways with antique family photos in interesting frames.
  • Don't neglect the kitchen! A dark wall with various sized prints makes quite an impact.
  • Symmetry and repetition in wall art can actually be a bold statement in an otherwise boring space.
  • Don't be afraid to cover a whole wall with art- It makes a room feel homey and might even provide sensational viewing to entertain your guests.
  • Don't stop at framed art. Hanging personal memorabilia like skateboards, skis, or other gear might be just the thing to infuse your room with personal style.
