Decor Monday – Wall of Frames and Young House Love

By  |  2 Comments

It’s Monday, which means time for another round of home decor inspiration. This weekend I bumped into an awesome blog called Young House Love. It’s by a young couple of “DIY dorks” who share their home decor and renovating adventures and misadventures with the world. It’s filled with DIY projects, ideas and inspiration and is a must for anyone working on creating or improving their dream home.

A lot of young couples and small families nowadays are moving away from complexes and townhouses and buying big, older homes that they can renovate, re-do and re-model. My hubby and I also sold our townhouse in May to buy a big old house that needs lots of TLC. It’s actually quite a lot of fun and I’m always looking for cool ideas, so the YHB is the perfect place to get inspired.

One of their projects that caught my eye was their Wall of Frames. In my house we too have a long, old-fashioned hallway, that I absolutely love! It’s the perfect place to hang family photos. I personally don’t like perfectly aligned, matchy-matchy frames next to each other. I prefer to create an effect, with different sized frames, placed in different positions. I did something similar with my wedding photos in my entrance hall, but I’m inspired to take on the whole hallway thanks to the Hallway Full Monty, a step by step project on how to create this effect.

Take a look

The only thing that’s left now is to find frames that wont break the bank! I want them to have the same borders, but different sizes. If you guys know of any, comment below and let me know.

    The cute thing about the wall of frames is that they are just randomly scattered :) It would be a real challenge to perfectly align different shaped and sizes. And the walls might have their own themes. One is for family photos, other for some random abstract graphics. Nice idea :)
