Even though this John Derian wall hanging is $1800 – that does not mean that you need to spend the doe to pull this look off. Find/Collect stunning plates (in varying sizes) at garage sales, and local thrift stores.
I adore this idea! Especially if you are into that casual weekend look. This person sells custom sized cutting boards. I say collect them and put’em up!
Area rugs like this should be classified as art any way. Why can’t you mount them onto your walls?
Vintage Clothing –
Hands down I am so feeling this one. This idea is so interesting, and chic. I ganked this idea from my friend and fellow designer Julia.
I knew I was on to something when my 10 year old asked “What is that?” Everyone has an album cover that they love so much they think they got a piece of art free with their vinyl purchase. This applies especially if you were born in the 70’s.
Frame Photos from your Grandparents’ Yearbooks –
I admit. I have never done this one before, however, I am going to do it as soon as the opportunity presents itself.
The idea of using vintage yearbook photos and framing them is so dope. Not only would it be stylish, I would guess they would be attainable. No worries if Grandma is not for you cutting up her stuff – take it to a pro and have the images copied. Just make sure that the copy retains its vintage appeal. i would suggest using a thick mat technique like this one.
Let me put a disclaimer on this idea …. It can easily look a hot mess when you mount non-interesting instruments, or those without any personality. This one works because it is perfectly added into a mix of black and white photography, and the pieces themselves look overall collected, instead of just purchased.
Draping fabric on your walls not only makes your room feel cozy, it also adds an opulence to your design.
