Have you ever experienced the frustration of staring at a blank wall and being unsure of how to decorate it? Me to! Where do you even start? I’m facing the same conundrum as I stare at the bare wall in our living room.

I have shopped my home and assembled a variety of different pieces of art, frames, and memorabilia. I’m now working on organizing it all for exhibition. I’ve been accumulating ideas and paying close attention to many styles. In the meantime, I thought I’d ask each of you the following questions:

1) Do you prefer a balanced wall display?
by repetition or symmetry?

In my workplace and daughter’s room, I’ve done symmetrical frame arrangements, but for my living room, I really like the attraction of a gallery or salon wall that looks accumulated through time.

And I really like the Better Homes and Gardens suggestion to tape paper to the wall before starting to drill holes to assess proportion and spacing.

Have the works of art in your house made a statement? Which do you find more appealing, a symmetrical grid-like exhibition or a more wacky salon gallery? Any links to amazing wall art displays? Please do, I could use some extra motivation while I work on this project!
