I’ve seen a lot of framed wall art and photo collages lately that have really caught my eye which lead me to collect the standouts. I think what I love most about framed wall art is the symmetry of the rectangular frames and the order the black borders impose on what could otherwise be complete chaos. It allows you to appreciate each individual piece and then appreciate the entire collage as a whole.
This is the kind of wall I think of immediately when I think of framed wall art and photo collages. Black, white, a dash of colour and a whole lot of order. There is nothing about the styling in this picture that I don’t like. The dash of colour in the middle, the old-fashioned clock, the small ornaments on the frame to the left of the clock, the vase with its wispy branches, the casually thrown blanket over the armchair and how appropriate is that zebra in that collection of mostly black and white pictures?
Another lovely collection of wall art collage that blends really well with the colour of the room and decor items. I’d love to see it lit at night under those lights.
Wow, wow, wow! What a divine office. High ceilings, the parquetry floor and a wonderful eclectic collection of prints and artwork for this wall collage. It’s a lot more casual than the first two and looks more ‘thrown together’ though I’m sure a lot of planning went into placing each image. Again, there is nothing in this room that I don’t like.
I am positively swooning with room envy today. Again, there’s nothing I don’t like in this picture. Even the upright cushion on the floor fits with the wall collage and decor. The grey couch is to die for , as is that coffee table. I like the way the coffee table isn’t placed directly over the top of the small rug, rather it’s half on, half off, and it fits with the positioning of the frames on the wall. I love the blue and grey tones through wall images and in the furniture and furnishings, too. This room is very cool in both tone and trend.
This is a softer, more colourful collection of images. I love that some are framed and that some are not. It works in this collage with the thick dark border around the image in the centre radiating out into softer frames, including that cute little shadow box with the tiny tea set ornaments. The rabbit on the wall is a bit creepy, perhaps it’s conjuring memories of Donnie Darko for me! And who doesn’t love a kitty napping on a kitchen chair <3
I chose this image even though I’m not a fan of the furniture and decor, nor the actual images in the frames, because I really like how BIG the frames are and I can visualise our wallpaper designs in them. Wow, what a nice collection that would be. I’m inspired!
We have an old retired racing greyhound so of course I’m naturally drawn to the greyhound photo but I like how there’s a large photo on one wall and smaller prints on the adjacent wall. Even the door looks like it’s part of the design.
Here’s a sweet collection of matching animal prints for a kids room. These are very symmetrical and formal. I’m loving the cushions, too, especially the dog one. Oooh, it’s a Dyson fan! Sweet.
Here’s a lovely eclectic collection of prints, photos and inspirational quotes, perfect for a little girl’s room. It’s a real mish-mash of vibrant colours, too, but I think it works. If Josh and Jenna from The Block had a little girl, I imagine her bedroom would look like this. I really like the subtle bird decor in the cushion print, the wall picture on the top left and the ornament on the bedside table. There’s a lot of love in this room <3
Do you have a collection of framed wall art or photo collages or are you inspired to create one?
