Blank walls in your new apartment or home got you down? Why not print out some of the awesome photos you have stored on your computer and frame them? Creating a photography wall gallery can be a great experience and will make your living space your own. A great idea is to create the gallery of uniform size and matted frames. Display in straight lines for crisp finished effect, or stagger to add artistic flare.
Theme your gallery photos is another great idea. Feature a set of all flowers, family photos, vacation pics, cars, people, pets or animals or travel scenes. Another great idea is to make all pictures black and white.
Vary sizes of frames or matting make for an interesting gallery as well.
Another gallery idea: display frames photos on floating shelves. This makes arranging easy and simple to change up whenever you feel the urge. Replace new pictures occasionally to keep your apartment or home living space fresh and memorable.

I get so confused when it comes to displaying art on a wall in Bucks County Houses, especially in a gallery type display. I plan it out on the floor, but by the time it comes to tapping in that first nail I lose faith in my layout, pack up the art and save it for another day. Thus, empty walls are my friend. But these images renew my faith in hanging wall art in Bucks County Houses.
A long wall can be overwhelming in Bucks County Houses, but images of similar design, size and with duplicate frames and matting stand out to perfection.

Maybe gilded gold decor evokes images of high-brow, ultra-rich, roped off rooms (my aunt had one for years, red velvet rope and all) but the gilded age need not be such a frightening design option. Subtle hinds of gilded gold adds elegance and warmth to any room. Add one or two pieces, gold-leafed or gold painted can bring the look to your apartment. If you are heading in the French or Shabby Chic design direction, adding a gold framed mirror or artwork, or a French nightstand, as in the image above are lovely options.

Displaying framed art on the walls of your apartment or home can be a challenge. Taking some time to check out other arrangements by some experts can give you great ideas. The key to this display: No even lines. All the art work slopes downward from the top/center. The pieces are basically equal spaced, about two inches apart, but the staggered effect is pleasing to the eye and draws in your interest. This is the perfect display idea if you have multiple sized artwork with different themes. The frames however do work together; they are simple and modern, so they compliment each other.
This creative art collage uses different frame options as well as art themes. The arrangement is haphazard in some ways, which gives it a groovy, artistic feel. Don’t limit your design options.
A romantic bedroom can be enhanced with rich looking oil paintings. This display collage keeps to a theme in the artwork, with subtle frame options. A more evenly spaced presentation gives this wall a pleasing look.
Another creative idea. All antique images have similar frames and matting, as well as color scheme. They are hanging from the chair rail in the room with special hooks and staggered in lengths for balance and eye appeal.
This is perhaps my favorite idea: An arrangement of frames purchased at yard-sales or flea-markets with no images in the centers. A creative idea is to place mirrors in them, or simple wood pieces to fill in the empty space. This adds a very creative touch to your wall space. Over a small table display of similar flea market finds add even more interest.
Final idea: Set your arrangement up on the floor, with equal measurement to the wall space, before starting. This gives you an idea of how your display will look. You can play with the arrangement until just the right collage is found. Be creative…and have fun.

The latest framing trends are quite interesting, and can be easily applied to your Bethlehem apartment. If you happen to have a nice apartment with high ceilings, which adds up to a lot of wall space, you can stack up a set of like-framed photos or paintings. Arranging vertically on the wall, instead of across its length, can be an eye-catching presentation which will fill up a blank space.
An open floor space in your Bethlehem apartment means walls for hanging artwork are minimal. Find that desperate spot above an entrance-way is ideal for a large piece of artwork. Make sure the frame is a standout.
Displaying a piece of art between the windows of your Bethlehem apartment is a perfect idea. Windows draw in light and create their own interest. A great piece of your own photography framed in a contrasting color will create dramatic interest in any room with light such as this one.
If you have a mantle in your Bethlehem apartment, finding the right piece and frame can be a chore. This space can be easily filled with a large dramatically framed artwork. Idea: set the frame right on the mantle instead of hanging it on the wall, for a cool artistic air.
