Have you ever wondered what to do with a long, boring hallway? Sometimes furniture can fit, but many times the space is just too narrow. If you’re like me, you don’t want to have a thoughtfully styled home with bare hallways. So what do you do? The best and easiest hallway decorating idea is to create an art collection. It doesn’t take up space, it adds color and dimension, and it allows you to showcase art and photography that represent your personality.

Add Variety

When designing your art collection, you don’t need to use the same frames, colors, or sizes. Mixing frames can add character to your collection. If you want to create a monochromatic look, stick with black, white, or silver frames with black and white images.

Utilize Shelves

If you are constantly changing up your art collections, display them on shelves. You can arrange them, rearrange them, and then rearrange them some more!

Line Them Up

For a minimalist look, display your art in row. You can either measure the pieces so that they are even, or stagger them for a more whimsical look.

Use Table Space

If you are blessed with a wide hallway, display your art on a table, and add other items, such as books. Above, empty frames are used to add height to the look. Ornate frames look stunning even when displayed on their own.
