Wall art in the traditional sense–like paintings, drawings and photography–doesn’t speak to everybody. If you’ve lived in a house with bare walls for months (or even years) because you just can’t seem to find the right artwork to hang, then you may very well be someone who isn’t drawn to two-dimensional representations.
And that’s OK.
Home decorating is an incredibly personal experience because you’re essentially deciding what you want to live with and look at every single day, and there’s no need to buy art simply because you feel like that’s what should go on your walls.
But that doesn’t mean you have to live with sterile bare walls either. More and more often, our clients are choosing to hang up beautiful objects, personal memorabilia, or prized collections instead, as a way to be surrounded by things that really matter to them or that they find inspiring to look at.
So what can you hang on your walls? Here are a few examples of unique wall art ideas from our recent client projects that aren’t actually art, yet make a beautiful and personal displays regardless.
A client turned a collection of large weather instruments into an original, graphic display above a sofa.
Or, how about classic Pop Art (Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans) printed on skateboards?
Finally, a musical client chose to display a collection of antique instruments in a small wall space near a window.
