Hang Art Like an IKEA Stylist

Hanging art can be a little tricky for us all, so we thought we'd go to the pro's and grab a little wall art display inspiration today from the stylists at IKEA's blog, Livet Hemma. From a fresh take on the gallery display, to ideas for walls you can't nail things to.  Here's 10 different ideas on how to display your art.

1. Mondrian Style
(Above and just below). Inspired by artist Piet Mondrian, master of lines and proportions , we love this fresh take on the gallery display  making a collage of large format MARIETORP and VAXBO frames .Click here to see more.

2. Clamp It
Besides us loving this bedside DIY idea, we also love the way they've displayed these pictures which are hung using clips making the images easy to move or switch around. Click here for details.

3. Lean It
A few pieces of art leaning against a wall is also a nice option, especially for the commitment phobe or a rental. Click here for more info.

4. In a Line
Hang them all out on a line.  This can be a tricky one, as it can look quite dated, especially if the line sags - so it's important to keep the images in a straight line.  Click here for details. (Pssst! Check out that vintage IKEA couch)!

5. Pictures in Pictures
Place a few items in one frame like this example below with a photo, a card and an inspirational phrase.  Hang alongside a few other pieces (note the colours).  Click here for more info.

6.  Reverse Mode
Add a few canvas pieces flipped backside for an interesting display.  Click here for more info.

7. Paint Your Frames
Add a little interest to your display by painting your frames in a unique way (like these block printed ones).  Click here for more info.

8. Random Gallery Style
Another riff off the gallery style, only a little more random.  Works well with a smaller size grouping (like below). Click here for details.

9. Overlap + Casual
A moody look with overlapping photos or cuttings, makes for a casual inspirational wall.   Click here for more details.

10.  Bulletin Board Style
A fun idea for an inspiration board, or something a little more casual.  Looks great even in this dining space (below). Click here for more info.
