Continue reading for inspiring ideas to guide you toward a show-stopping arrangement.

Consider Your Style

Bring any room in your house to life by choosing art pieces and frames that reflect your family’s taste. Design experts suggest striking a balance between maintaining consistency and breaking up uniformity. To do this, find frames that are similar hues to create a cohesive look, then toss in items like painted wooden letters or a mirror to shake things up. Incorporate your natural surroundings by displaying pictures or objects collected from your nature walks around The Canyons community.  

Plan Your Gallery Wall Ahead

Before you begin adorning your brand-new walls, loosely arrange your art according to your vision in order to decide which configuration works best. Whether you choose frames of various sizes or of identical dimensions, follow a ratio that gives equal attention to extra-large and petite pieces. Remember to leave space between each frame to effortlessly attract the eye to each of your components without creating a messy look. By laying everything out ahead of time, you’ll be able to make revisions prior to committing to an arrangement. 

Think Outside The Frame

Three-dimensional items like vintage cameras, china, and woven baskets add a touch of character that’s both nostalgic and on-trend. If they can’t be hung, interior decorators favor propping your pieces on sleek shelving units or placing larger artwork on the floor to lean against the wall. Add real or synthetic plants — like succulents — to add a fresh Colorado flair and provide a daily reminder of why you love living at The Canyons.
