I am the author of the Watercolor With Me book series. I love helping other creatives kick butt in the real world. When I'm not working on the Wonder Forest brand, you can find me teaching in my Watercolour Workshop and creating great products. Visit me on Instagram for behind the scenes bits!
Lately I’ve been getting bored with my walls. I have a slight obsession with picture frames. I can spot them from a mile away at yard sales. I am not afraid to pick them out of people’s garbage bins. My whole house is covered in them. Our living room, however, was lacking somehow. I had my picture frames hanging in there for quite a while, but was never fully satisfied with how they looked. The area was too large. I needed to fill up that huge space somehow, so after a little digital sketching (so I could work out where each frame would be positioned before punching a bunch of holes in the wall) I decided to spread them out more, higher up, and here is my result:
Below is what it looked like before (sorry about the crappy photo, I forgot to take a “before” shot and had to find this one on my computer):
I changed out some of the artwork and added a few embroidery hoops fitted with fabric for a little extra pop of colour. I am loving this arrangement so much better! I feel like it just brightens up the space so much. What do you think?
I’ve been collecting some inspiration for some of my other walls, such as this:
Plates! I love this setup! I am always afraid of putting plates in my wall though in case they happen to fall off and smash! If I had a beautiful colourful collection such as this though, I’d probably get over that fear!
