How to display artwork without hanging it on a wall
The best thing about artwork is you can be a little crazy with it. You can display lots of pieces, creating an eclectic vibe. You can display one piece as a focal point for a space. You can make it match or the room or make it a stark contrast to the surrounds. There's so many ways to use it. But, did you know that there's also some really stunning ways to display it that don't involve sticking or nailing things to the wall?
These alternative display methods are wonderful for renters, when you're feeling a piece and deciding to keep it or display it permanently, when you simply want something different or if you've just done a fresh coat of pain and want to preserve it a little longer.
They look gorgeous and make a statement, so here are three of our favourite ways to do it right now!
Place it on top of a sideboard and lean it against the wall.
This is beautiful when you have a large piece or many smaller pieces along side one another. It is striking but make sure you have the dimensions right so the piece looks appropriate on top of the sideboard. The bigger the sideboard, the bigger the artwork!
Place it against the wall on the floor.
This gives a gorgeous, bohemian, effortless style with a little creativity. Some people group artwork together in clusters and some separate them or stack books alongside them to create a cosy feel.
Place it on a shelf in bunches.
Overflowing artwork shelves are one of my favourite things right now. Group colour palettes together and finish them with a consistent frame across the collection. Choose different shapes and sizes for something really striking.
