Painted Picture Frames
Picture frames are an easy and quick way of introducing a co-ordinated colour theme and your own personal style. Choosing complementary colours you can paint and stack the frames to create a single eye-catching feature wall effect… or choose a more traditional ‘framing story’ with a mix of interesting textures, colours and ornamental features laid out over the wall.
Framed Wallpapers and Fabric
Another great way to create wall art is to frame wallpapers or fabrics in complementary colours and designs. You can use multiple fabric / wallpaper panels repeating with the same frame as the co-ordinating element or choose a single wallpaper / fabric inside a multitude of different frames.
Why limit yourself to two dimensions when you can make even more of three. Frames give you a three dimensional effect straight away – so using nature; for example, a dramatic tree branch framed in ascending stages looks incredible! Or use the frames to swap in and out elements of each season so you can change your room’s mood for every time of year.
Painted Ceiling Mouldings
Another clever idea is to take found objects and paint them in complementary colours to create your wall art. Ceiling mouldings work especially well but there are many other elements you could draw on to create a truly unique effect.
