1 Review
Pair pictures with the perfect mats, use inventive hanging techniques, try out different wall arrangements, and play with combinations of color. Uncertain of what to put up rather than how to do it? Then feast upon the innovative suggestions for creating themed displays, or assembling still lifes that blend pictures with everything from wooden sculptures to childhood memorabilia. Broaden your definition of a “picture” to include such fabulous things as antique game boards, painted china plates, or a key collection. With these ideas as a springboard, home-sweet-home will look more beautiful than ever.
