Picture hanging inspiration

8 Oct

I don’t know about you but I’m always looking for inspiration around different ideas for hanging art and photographs.  I’ve always been a big fan of hanging collections together to give the impression of a larger piece of art.  This is a great example of how, by sticking to the black and white theme throughout the room, the framed photos on the wall really work together as a grouping.  A good hint for hanging groups of photos like this one:  cut pieces of brown craft paper to the size of each frame and stick a piece of blu-tack on the back of  each where the nail should go (I don’t know what this is called in the states but they use it all the time over here in Ireland — it’s a sticky bit of putty adhesive to affix things to the wall).

The blu-tack will leave a mark on the wall where your nail should go and it takes all the guesswork out of the process and is much easier to arrange and move arround as needed.
