Wall Collages and Wall Art ~ Decorating Walls

You can get pretty creative when decorating walls
with art and collages. This post focuses on desk
spaces and wall collages. I really love that the painted
frame on the wall looks like molding. Putting a frames
within a frame is not a new idea but this is a pretty
fun example.

A desk or craft area is a great place to fill the walls with
inspirations and finished pieces that can be shown off on
the walls.

Here's a more traditional take in an office with an
antique desk. The black and white photos and frames
give the room a more modern twist.

You can tell the owner of this room is probably eclectic and
a world traveler with pieces and colors from around the world.

Stringing up cards can be a great way to decorate your desk.

In lieu of an inspiration board, why not just make a collage on
the wall where your desk is? You can just keep adding on!

Here's a collage of small frames and
photos around the fireplace.

Ever wanted to cover your entire wall
with a collage? This is what it would look

Here's a more organized way to cover
the wall in floor to ceiling with photos.

And this is a true collage - pictures of every size and
shape. It almost looks like the owner decoupaged
the wall!

Anyhow, I hope this has given some of you
some fun inspiration for your walls.

My refrigerator tends to be my collage! With Spring cleaning upon me, I plan to take all the photos of family and friends, special quotes, invitations, newspaper clippings, etc. off to clean. I was thinking I might leave it naked for awhile which won't last long. Maybe hang a burlap covered board on the kitchen wall and use it instead.

The sixth and seventh photos have long been inspirations for me. It inspired me to make an inspiration wall in my office (and lots of pinholes in the wall!).

I really like seeing fun and creative ways to hang artwork. There's so much more you can do than hang a picture frame on a nail!!
