I’ve always been a big fan of empty frames. I know this look has been done before plenty of times in design but I really think it’s a great substitute for buying art. The easy part is collecting empty frames and deciding if you want to paint them or leave the as is. Secondly is deciding if you want to lean them against a table or hang them up for wall art. All you really need is a collection of frames and deciding what you want to do with them. Below are some awesome photos I’ve collected on ways other decorators and designers have done with decorating with empty frames. Either you like this look or think it’s not happening, it’s all a matter of preference and personal taste. I think if it is artfully and tastefully done, I’m all about decorating with empty frames. However, I’ve seen a couple on Pinterest and blogs that are not happening what so ever. You can make this wall of empty frames as large or as small as you like. For positioning, look at all the frames as a whole and make the center at eye level.

I like the collection of antique looking frames placed on top of the mantel.

And lastly here is what I did with my two large black and white wooden frames. I placed them on top of my dresser in my master bedroom. Decorated the frames with two crystals I got from Bliss Home, a wooden box and a Marilyn Monroe picture. I think it is simple yet it ties up the room nicely.
What are your thoughts on decorating with empty picture frames?
