Grouping a Large Collection of Pictures

When we moved into our plaster-walled home about 10 months ago, we decided to be especially deliberate about what we hung on the walls and where we placed arrangements, so as to avoid the thousands of nail holes that graced our previous abode. Caution quickly translated into paranoia, and as a result our walls have remained rather bare. As we near the one year anniversary of our arrival, we've decided to finally add some life to the walls. Here are a few of our inspirations for grouping pictures and prints in style...

I gushed over the variety of frames used in this sitting spot featured in Skona Hem (above). The three matching white frames create a nice focal point, and the carefully spaced frames surrounding it make the whole arrangement seem clean and tidy.

I LOVE the eclectic mix of forms and themes in this Domino arrangement. Even though it incorporates a variety of styles, it is well balanced which keeps it from appearing too haphazard. The larger frames on the left bottom and top right corners balance each other while the host of smaller frames keep your eye moving around the arrangement. I love how the collection is carefully anchored by the gorgeous convex mirror.

This is one of the best examples that I've seen of an interesting horizontal arrangement. Typically, we tend to decorate with vertical arrangements, but I enjoy this balanced spread of prints from Domino. It broadens the focus of the room, which a tight cluster over the bed would not have been able to achieve.

This simple, carefully balanced arrangement from Home to Home is appealing to the eye, as are most symmetrical layouts. Although it lacks the variety of the other groupings, I appreciate the sense of order that it exudes.
