To arrange picture groups on a wall, use matching colored frames for a designer look, and allow for breathing space between clusters. Hang related pictures together, either staggered or lined up in a grid, with tips from a professional interior decorator in this free video on home decor.
Hi, I'm Ann Myrick, and today I'm going to show you how to arrange groups of pictures on the wall. This is a sample of a group. I really like, it works better if you use a like color of frames, that's really the key. That is where you get a designer look instead of having a few brass, a few black, a few fake wood. If you take what ever you're going to do, and just get, they don't even have to be identical frames, just that they're the same color, it really works. It has a unified look to it, and looks great. So, these were, there's a like topic here in that two of the pictures were done by my child, and then this picture is my child. And so, what I did is put them all in black frames. These are identical, this one is not, but I really like the difference between, you know, having a different frame. I don't like a lot of repitition, but I like uniformity, so that matings are white, you can use an off-white, but this is a great group, and then over here we have a group that is a gold frame and a light wood, and it's two floral pictures that I put together. In putting pictures together, you can, the look of having, like rows of pictures, like three rows of three pictures in each row, that is a great look. The thing about that is, I love that look, but it's really hard at times to get the pictures identically level with each other, and if you're going to do that type of grouping, where you have three rows of pictures that go down, you want to be sure that everything lines up and they're all the same height. You can group several pieces, and then add a few plates around the pictures. You can, there's, there's a lot of things you can do with your groupings. What I would say is just don't, on every wall, you do not need to put a picture. I really like breathing space. So if I have several walls that have pictures, I'm going to have a wall that doesn't have a picture on it because I like a little breathing space, and a, kind of time for my eye to get a little re-energized before I start looking at other pictures. This is Ann Myrick, and that is how to arrange pictures in a group.
