On a ledge

If you’re on the fence about frame style or have a collection of frames already, try a picture ledge.

Using two or three ledges, like a Shelfmate photo ledge from Builder’s Warehouse (currently on sale for R160 each and available in a number of colours), you could install them in one long row or one above the other.

Once installed, add your framed photos, artwork, a small vase with flowers and the odd ornament or two to create a look that you love. When you need a change, simply swap the ornaments and flowers and change the frames.

Here is a gorgeous example of @homedecar.

What I love about this option is that you can change the picture frames as often as you like. You can also mix and match the frames you have, using ornaments to help pull a look together. And if you discover that you’ve had enough of a particular effect – like shabby chic or rustic frames for example – you can simply remove them and exchange them for whatever frame style tickles your fancy.
