Creating your own feature wall using photographs, prints and pieces of art work can be an easy, yet rewarding addition to a plain wall in your home.
If you rent, hanging pictures on the wall is a great way of putting your stamp on a magnolia wall - as long as you fill in those tiny holes once you leave of course. Above are some images to inspire you a little and to show you just what can be achieved with a little patience and a level hand. First of all, decide how you want your wall to look.
Are you going for black and white photography in the same frame, row upon row? Or perhaps you've got art work you'd like to display? As you can see from the examples we've highlighted, a mix of colours can work really well, as do a collective of various frames and sizes.
The easiest way to start is to decide what your centre focal picture is going to be. The middle of your photo display should start at your eye level, but first start by laying everything out on the floor to decide what fits where. Then take a photograph so you remember exactly what goes where. Use a spirit level or get someone to help you when it comes to making sure the pictures are straight. Some of the most successful photo walls are the ones which comprise a variation of frames and sizes. You can even frame old maps, tickets from trips or make your own art work (watch out for a post on this later on this week).
This is about creating a wall space which showcases your taste and style. Plus there's nothing nicer than being faced with happy memories every time you walk in your front room or bedroom.
Here are just some of the pieces of wall art that can be found on Eat Live Sleep. Now, all that's left to do is pick which wall.
