2. Coordinate with the decor

For a better balance, you can have your frames match your current decor in the room. You will therefore have to bet more on the colors so that they match well with your colors of the room.

3. Vary everything

If you vary everything, this will mean that you can vary the colors, shapes and sizes of the frames. It will be pell-mell and it will be quite a style! On the other hand, even if all these frames will be rather varied, it will be important that they still keep a certain coherence to keep a beautiful final aspect.

8. Place a piece of furniture in front of the wall of frames

To create a decor with a different style, you can also place a desk or a shelf directly at the bottom of the frames. Be careful though, this piece of furniture must be well centered and proportional to the wall.

9. Have the right tools

Make sure you have a good hammer, good nails and of course a good level to be sure to position your frames correctly.

10. Choose a wall where there are no windows

For a more successful effect, choose a wall on which there are no windows. This will highlight your frames and photos and not the window.
