Collage Walls

DIY, Home, ArchiveJessica Rayome1 Comment

So I have a mild obsession with collage walls. They are a great way to add fun details to any empty space. 

The biggest thing about them that I like are there are no rules. They can use any form of art work, can be any size, have no pictures or be all pictures. 

I usually tend to make mine somewhat balanced even if the piece sizes or frames don't match. It's all about fitting them together right.  

I like to make sure that there are sentimental pieces, whether that be a photo or something that reminds you of a place. I like to mix old photos with new, some here are from our childhood and high school and some are from our wedding!

So this is for Aaron's music space and is concerts posters of some of our favorite artists. Fun fact about the top left, Aaron actually played in that concert in Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium on his 21st birthday :D

This is his whole music space, I'm hoping to find a cheap upright piano to replace our not worthy of being pictured keyboard!

It also doesn't have to always be crazy mix matched. Sometimes it's nice when its all the same frame and looks really clean! All of these photos are black and white in white frames. This is in our bedroom and will soon have a pretty black dresser under it. 

The fourth collage wall we currently have in the house (I don't dare say last) is one in our hall way. 

This is actually one of my favorites, even though it is impossible to photograph (being that it's in our little hallway and you have to stand in a closet to be even close to being back far enough) 

The reason I like it so much is one it fills what would be a very long empty hallway well. You can't put too much on the walls in a narrow hallway but I like when you walk by that there is something to look at. 

The next reason I like it so much is this one has a ton of people behind it. The rocking chair is actually a painting from Aaron's mom. The "Bloom" print is from our old apartment manager at Bpaperie who helped us out a ton when we got married. The print in the top right is from WhatThePrint which is Aaron's cousin's fiance, with whom which I am besties. The other two pieces center around our marriage and our home. And who doesn't love a good dog photo? lol 

So moral of the story is I love collage walls, think they can work anywhere, and you should have some too.
