Here’s a consideration for decorating your walls. Do you love the look of a gallery wall, but prefer not to be locked into precise spacing and hanging of individual items? If you enjoy changing out your décor quite often, perhaps seasonally, then the following approach might be right for you. You can channel the effect of a gallery wall by implementing the handy helpers of shelves and ledges. This family of items includes floating shelves and picture ledges (either lighted or not), shadow boxes, display cases and other hangars and hooks.
Unobtrusive shelves are easy to hang. Group two or three on a wall together. Choose a style that suits your taste; perhaps you like a formal, angled shelf that resembles crown moulding or, maybe you like the rough-hewn look of rustic or reclaimed lumber to accent your objects. Try employing the same shelf in different lengths, perhaps one long and two shorter lengths.
Utilize several of these wall decorating ideas throughout your home to keep yourself visually engaged in your space every day, and for guests to learn more about what makes you tick: Your interests, loves and memories.
