It’s no secret that bloggers are among the home decor industry’s top trendsetters these days. They’re often the first to implement (and widely share) new styles and ideas spotted at trade shows and in shelter magazines, and they also serve as a wonderful resource of original creative ideas themselves. More and more often, we’re finding ourselves sourcing some of our favorite inspiration images from blogs.
Here are a few of the best wall art ideas we’ve seen from the blogosphere.
1. The gorgeous combination of graphic black-and-white stripes and organic botanical prints in the home of blogger Emily A. Clark creates a display that’s a perfect balance of modern and natural.
2. Family photo walls are one of our specialities at ILevel, so it’s always fun to see a new take on the idea, like this 3-D display by Jennifer O’Brien of City Farmhouse.
3. Technically, Emily Henderson is a TV host and interior designer, but she has a beautiful blog, too, where she featured a collaboration with fellow blogger Joy Cho of Oh Joy! The mix of color and art styles proves that gallery walls don’t have to be traditionally “perfect” to be downright stunning.
4. We love the “more is more” approach to the stairway gallery wall, spotted on the blog Rooms for Rent.
5. What better inspiration for taking a totally outside-the-box approach to wall decor than this eclectic arrangement from blogger Justina Blakeney of The Jungalow? Her look combines painted shapes, shelving, and objects collected from her travels to create a display that’s 100% unique.
6. Here, blogger Sara Mora of A House in the Hills jumps on the macrame trend, which provides a great alternative to the standard sunburst mirror we’ve seen above the bed for so long.
7. Last but not least, another stairway gallery wall, this time from blogger Erin Gates of Elements of Style. We love how she combines classic pieces–like a mini Federalist mirror–with antique silhouettes and a collection of black and white photography to create a wall that’s both timeless and fresh at the same time.
