The idea of designing a new picture wall has been brewing for sometime, but the catalyst was the arrival of our new sofa. The squarer shape and darker colour was calling out for a bolder backdrop. Having changed the previous picture wall to all-white frames, I wanted to mix things up again by adding in some black ones. With a growing collection of prints to work with, my main goal was to come up with a new configuration that would continue to allow for changing out the prints as the mood takes me.
With the gorgeous Paper Collective print as my starting point, I decided to offset the grouping of pictures to one side. This design also works well with the modularity of the sofa, and the different configurations that I showcased here. Playing around with the prints on the floor first, it didn't take long to come up with one that I thought would translate well to the wall! The increasing height was more accidental, but I really love it.
