Feature wall/picture gallery
First, choose the area in your home that you wish to update, it may be the wall running up the stairs, a quiet reading area or simply the space above your sofa that needs an injection of style.
The trick to creating a stunning picture gallery is to bring a real synergy to your display by balancing out the colours – making it ideal for achieving a modern monochrome style statement. You don’t have to just use photos for your gallery, sketches or illustrations can look just as stylish. As long as the pictures complement one another, you can be fairly creative with your choices.Try using a mixture of different style frames such as modern, rustic and shabby chic that will suit your existing interior décor and complement each other. However to add synergy to the display keep similar style frames near to each other. Keep the spaces between the frames fairly small. A good tip is to lay them out on the floor and decide on the arrangement before you commit to hanging them on the wall.
When you are happy with your selection, the easy-to-use Command Picture Hanging Strips are ideal for hanging your frames as they avoid the need to drill or hammer any holes into your walls.Command Products can be removed hassle free and with no damage to your walls or paintwork, so it’s easy to straighten and realign your pictures by clicking and unclicking. To move your picture to a new wall simply pull the strip off following the instructions, replace with a new one and position your picture.
