Look! Using Paper for Your Art Gallery

Look! Using Paper for Your Art Gallery

If you are looking for a creative and affordable way to create an art gallery, try using paper. Here are a few interesting ideas for your home that look stunning yet still allow you to re-invent your look whenever you feel like it without breaking the bank. Plus the art gallery look creates vertical depth and draws the eye up, making your space feel bigger. Don't we all love that!?!

Painted wrapping paper (above): Check out these pretty wrapping paper sheets of maps in various colors and styles. I love the saturated colors!

Vintage worldly newspapers: I spotted this gallery idea a few weeks ago using old Parisian newspapers the homeowner had picked up for a steal at a local flea market. Flea markets are the perfect place to spot rare treasures for a decent price.

Wallpaper: Wallpaper has made a serious design comeback in the last year or so. One of my favorite stores, Walnut, houses a large collection of wallpaper finds that will work in any home with any style. Search by color, category or designer and buy samples that can become the focus of your art gallery.

Handmade stationary/illustrations: There are some incredible paper goods stores and sites that offer everything from classic to kitsch. Just customize your order to compliment your décor and your art will work in your space. I love the work by Mateo Ilasco, featuring raw design and colors.
