Design a picture wall and creatively spice up living spaces
Creating a picture wall in your home can be a cost-effective and entertaining way to design a space that includes the most important paintings, photographs, illustrations, and personal effects, express yourself and spice up your entire living environment. A well-organized picture wall not only occupies empty space on a large wall, but also creates a central focal point that fills the room with color and creative life energy. For inexperienced interior designers can make picture wall, however, initially seem a little daunting. That's why we have prepared some practical tips and 50 style ideas for you that will definitely inspire your creativity.

Collect and sort decoration pieces for your picture wall
The first step in designing a picture wall is to create a collection of things you love – works of art (classic, abstract, sketches, children's drawings, etc.), posters, photographs, even a stamp, insect collection, or a single rustic porcelain plate. These can all follow a single theme or even carry very different meanings. Popular topics include family life, unforgettable places, happy experiences, nature or just your hobby.
Whichever theme you choose, always make sure that the colors and patterns match your interior. If your collection has a neutral color palette, you can hang it on an accent wall of colored elements. However, if your chosen decor is more colorful, it will be better highlighted if it is hung or leaned against a neutral white or gray wall. In this way, there is always balance in your living space.
Dark background colors effectively enhance your decor
Even black is no longer a taboo in the interior
Accent walls are the perfect place for your picture wall
Remember, your wallet can easily be replaced or updated over and over again as you add new favorites over the months or years. Just decide what you want to take off the wall and replace it with pieces of similar size.

When designing the picture wall, the frames also play an important role
The matching frames will give your picture wall the final touch. In particular, when working with artworks, using frames with a similar design and style is a great way to customize the collection to match the style of your home. Some particularly beautiful frames can even be hung on the wall and act as independent elements. This is especially the case if they are made by yourself. Such unique finds are otherwise easy and cheap to find at all flea markets and are a perfect match for a rustic decor.
Stack empty frames for extra dimension and visual interest
Dimension, position and finish
After you have collected all things, you think that you just have to hang them up. However, one should not skip an important step here, because it is crucial for the successful design of your picture wall. It is about the measurement and positioning of each decorative element. Finally, holes in the wall can later be made difficult only.
First measure your existing wall space and mark its size with tape, on the floor. Now place your entire collection within the marker and move the pieces until you are satisfied. Always start with the largest piece and use it as the center of your arrangement. Always release a few inches between parts. Grab photos and compare them.
Once you are satisfied with the arrangement, get a large newspaper and trim it to the size of each item. Glue the paper to the wall in the same order and mark the holes. Our tip: Most art galleries hang works about 150 cm off the ground, so they are at eye level. Follow this principle or experiment with your own heights and balance. Only now can you hammer in the nails and hang all the pieces. Finally, use a spirit level to make sure everything is straight. Your picture wall is ready!
