When decorating a space, one of the most important elements is personality. Without it a space is clinical and boring.
Gallery walls are great way to inject your own personality into your space. They create a dramatic focal point and give an insight into the lives of those who live there. But when it comes to choosing which photo’s to display, I can be the most indecisive person on the planet. An arrangement I may like on Monday could be totally out of favour with me by Friday! Enter Picture Ledges. They give me the freedom to change and rearrange them as often as I like without having to punch more holes in my walls.
I’ve just put the Ribba picture Ledge from Ikea up in our hall. It’s a narrow hallway and I wanted to add some interest above the radiator cover.
I chose black and white frames but I opted for colour photographs as I already have a black and white gallery wall in my office.
There are countless options and styles you can go with. Here are just a few images I have found which I hope will get you inspired.
I love this display from Apartment Therapy I would work very well on a narrow wall. I like the little block detail and the photo hung from the shelf is a nice touch.
How cute is this from Simply Nattie
You don’t even have to use wood ledges. Here some molding has been used to great effect.
I hope I’ve encouraged you to get your photographs off your hard drive and onto our walls and given you some ideas about displaying them.
