Today’s waffle: collage framed artwork

Posted on

Recently one of my favorite blogs, Casasugar, did a post about design trends they deem the best of 2011.  Some of their ideas I didn’t recognize as trends (loose arrangements of flowers?) but one in particular stood out to me: collaged framed artwork, in which smaller frames are hung together in a cluster.  I actually think this has been a trend for a few years now.

Sometimes people unify the look with the same color frames like Sherri and John from younghouselove did:

Sometimes a gallery wall is created with similar artwork but different colored frames:

gallery wall different colored frames, displaying artwork different colored frames, beautiful way to display artwork, black and white photography different colored frames, pretty art gallery wall

And of course sometimes both artwork and frames are varied:

gallery wall varied artwork, beautiful gallery wall, pretty gallery wall, displaying different sized artwork together, collage framed artwork, adorable kids on stairs with artwork, gallery wall on stairs

Lots of people hang their artwork in a highly organized way:

gallery wall pottery barn, lovely gallery wall pottery barn, gallery wall, displaying artwork, displaying black and white photographs, artwork in the entryway, photographs in the entryway, gallery wall entryway, gallery wall photos bench, pretty entryway with photos

And others create a looser structure:

collage framed artwork, black frames, gallery wall with black frames, gallery wall black and white photographs, gallery wall over couch, gallery wall in living room, pretty gallery wall

So what do you think about this trend? Do you think it’s here to stay or a flash in the pan decorating idea?
