We just painted and redesigned this Family Room.
It needed to have something larger to put on this wall --- so we decided to take a number of smaller items and create a grouping.
Here is the BEFORE --- the wall that the grouping is now on
is where the entertainment center is in this photo.
We took out a number of items and decluttered. The paint really added some warmth.
See how nice the grouping works on the right wall.
It feels like a whole different room!
When you need to fill a larger space on a wall, it works to take a number of framed photos and artwork or other items of interest and place them together as a group rather than spread them across the wall.
With this group we added a wreath which is more 3 dimensional and adds some texture and interest. We also found two metal frames that had similar design.
I layed them out on the floor and tried different arrangements. Once I decided on the one I liked the best we just hung it on the wall!
Try GROUPINGS when you need to fill a larger space rather than placing one framed picture on the wall or trying to spread out a few that are just too small.
