Do you have an area in your home that looks like this?
Chose a bland space for a salon wall design.
Collectables, pictures, artwork, thrift shop finds or items around the house can be reused and presented in a pulled together way.
Items can be grouped with a symmetrical spacing focus or patterns can be created. To do a specific layout, first place objects on the floor to get an idea of how they will look when hung up. Then map it out on the wall with removable stickers, post-its or small pencil marks so that the hardware goes in the right spot the first time.
Or, forgo proportion altogether and do a random layout.
Salon walls are perfect installation bases for displaying artwork.
Also, children’s artwork can be easily interchanged in frames for a place to put prized pieces.
A decorative wall is a great place to experiment with color.
Many salon walls use framed photograph groupings, although any material can be integrated to create a wall display. Fabrics and textiles provide a textured, dramatic effect. Instead of purchasing new fabrics, remnants, old tea towels, blankets, clothing or other pieces can be used, too.
Another concept is to use mismatched sized but similar items, like mirrors, which instantly wake up a room. More than one central feature also adds interest. Try mixing in different items that you may already have, like mirror and picture combinations.
Add in practical pieces for a utilitarian feel.
They are also great for reusing supplies. Small wooden pallets were upcycled and installed on this wall, creating a functional focal point.
Children may have an entirely different idea of what should be incorporated on a dull wall, however.
Try placing a gallery wall in an unexpected spot like an unused corner area, bathroom, foyer or bare hall space. Whether using up a whole room or a dedicated area, salon walls are ideal for reusing objects and showcasing them in a stylish exhibition.
