As I've accumulated a boatload of vintage frames during my excursions to the flea market, I've been waiting for inspiration to strike so I could finally take them out of hiding and put them on my wall. Since I have a hard time getting behind a wall of blank frames, I had assumed that I would need to find glass and mats for each frame. That was until now.
This arrangement from Hus & Hem is all the inspiration I need! I love how the frames are arranged in a tight installation so that it feels like one solid wall hanging rather than multiples placed near each other. And with some photos actually framed and other photos placed within the space of a frame, the variations within the arrangement cause your eye to constantly move about. Still, my favorite element is that fact that many of the photos can quickly be replaced without much time or effort.
Once I find a couple more large frames, an arrangement inspired by this will most definitely be going above my bed.
