A few new motifs on the wall provide variety at home!
HANG IT! HANG PICTURES IN DIFFERENT STYLES
At the end of summer in particular, you want to make yourself really comfortable at home. The furniture is moved, cozy pillows and blankets are taken out and the holiday memories find their place on the wall. And here the same question arises every time: How are the pictures hung so that they result in a beautiful overall concept?
So that your pictures come into their own and are arranged harmoniously, we present four different styles - sometimes very accurate, sometimes relaxed and casual. Now all you have to do is decide which look you like best.
It's all in the mix! Different sized frames in the same style create a harmonious impression.
CREATING A GEOMETRIC SHAPE WITH "INSIDE THE LINES"
Would you like your pictures to become a total work of art? This is very easy to do with the "Inside the Lines" hanging. The arrangement of the pictures creates a geometric shape that surrounds the motifs like an imaginary frame. Square, rectangular or round - you are spoiled for choice here.
Large picture frames define the shape.
Use the smaller motifs to fill in the gaps.
HANG UP INSIDE THE LINES STEP BY STEP:
So that you can easily create the geometric shape, first arrange the pictures on the floor or a table. You start with the largest frames and thus determine the shape. The smaller frames are gradually added in a mix of portrait and landscape format . The rectangle is ready! Of course, you can just go wild and let yourself be surprised by the geometric shape that is created.
Everything in balance: the motifs are in the foreground, precisely arranged.
IN RANK AND FILE WITH STRICT GEOMETRY
Do you like it to be tidy and accurate? If you like it organized, you should arrange your pictures according to strict geometry. A collection of similar picture styles and the same frame go particularly well with this. Due to the linear arrangement and the restrained colors, each motif stands for itself and comes into its own.
Every motif is refined behind glass.
A little precision skill is required
THIS IS HOW IT WORKS WITH THE FINE-TUNING:
To lay out the strict geometry, grab the spirit level and a folding rule first. This allows you to adjust the distances to each other, so it looks particularly harmonious and coordinated. The spirit level helps ensure that every picture hangs straight. It is best to start with the motifs above and hang the remaining pictures in rows below.
Art gallery with a difference: with washi tape and the Petersburg hanging
THOUGHTFUL MESS WITH THE PETERSBURG HANGING
Colorful, cheerful and wonderfully imperfect - all of this succeeds with the Petersburg hanging. This type of arrangement, also known as a parlor hanging, was popular with the Russian tsars to showcase their wealth of art. We'll do it right away and grab the best holiday memories, a few postcards with sayings and statements or the birthday cards from the memory box.
Here you can glue on wildly.
The flexible washi tape forgives small mistakes very quickly.
PETERSBURG HANGING WITH WASHI TAPE:
For once, the motifs are not locked behind glass, but are given a colorful frame with washi tape . This not only saves money, but also protects the wall. Since the flexible tape can be cut to size quickly and doesn't leave any marks on the wall, you can really let off steam here artistically. A colorful mix of pastel tones with noble gold accents skilfully stages every picture.
Step by step to the colorful picture gallery.
The more colorful, the better!
Green, green, green are all my pictures!
DANCING OUT OF LINE WITH THE HANGING ON THE EDGES
If the Petersburg hanging is too bustling for you and the strict geometry too accurate, the edge hanging could be the right system for you. This works well when you have different sized motifs or picture frames available. Here it seems like your pictures are balanced on an imaginary center line.
Great combination: wooden frames and urban jungle motifs.
You don't need a green thumb here, just a little skill.
THIS IS HOW THE EDGE HANGING WORKS:
When arranging, make sure that the distance to the central line is always the same. If a spirit level alone is not enough for arranging, you can also stretch a straight string or glue painter's tape to the wall for orientation. If you don't have a green thumb, you can bring the urban jungle trend to life on the wall with a picture gallery with plant motifs and wooden picture frames .
Decoration tip: Large picture arrangements fit well in a large living room, while small picture galleries are great for use in the hallway or kitchen.
With the different arrangements, you can transform your home step by step into an art gallery that rivals any museum. We hope you enjoy arranging and hanging up!
