I personally love the collected look of a collaged art wall there are so many possibilities. It seems mismatched, yet brilliantly blends together and is so interesting. There is history and interest. These collaged walls range from art only to vintage pieces and architectural elements. which has a ton of personality.

Create a collaged art wall with interest


    1. I think the biggest thing is to hang 3 grouped pictures first and then work around them. The other thing is if something doesn’t look right, take a picture of it and look at the picture, it’s easier to see that way.

  1. So excited….maybe I am ahead of a trend for once. I have a “gallery” hallway with pictures of my children/family and art….both my children’s and others. I love it.

  2. I am gathering a wall now…not just pictures but, things with dimension….framed old lock, old wood golf club, mirror, pocket watch, set of corbels, ampersand etc. send pic when installed. Looks great in my head! Know there will be some finagling to do. But, that’s the fun.

  3. Jen, I am IN LOVE with the collage walls too! I wasn’t fortunate enough to have a collection of plates, so I couldn’t follow that trend☺ I just usually do what feels good and beautiful to me (sometimes it’s a trend, but usually not). Thanks for sharing all the amazing ideas and websites that will for sure inspire me! I wanted you to know that I’m a HUGE fan of yours!! (Don’t worry, I don’t blog stalk),☺ but I DO love everything about your beautiful home. I’m really excited to see what you’re doing with your basement, I hope all goes well!–♥Angie
