Ok, so now that it is officially F A L L I can finally share with you a bunch of fall decor inspiration with out wondering “hmmm, will they think I’m crazy decorating for fall, pre-fall?”. I’m excited to share with you some fall art ideas for your living room or any blank wall in your home. I’ve been enjoying our living room art ledges SO much. Sometime around last January-February we decided to take down a gallery wall and add ledges for framed art/photos etc… ever since that change I’ve really enjoyed switching up the art and mixing in different pieces for each season.
Here is a look back at what I’ve done the past few seasons/holidays…
If you are looking to decorate a main wall area in your home-and stuck on what to add I encourage you to consider adding ledges and simple clean line frames of varying sizes that you can swap out seasonally. It’s so easy and there are so many different things you can add to the frames. Here are some ideas…
Frame pressed natural elements (leaves)
Local art studios/markets
If you noticed from the past seasons I tend to choose a color scheme or a focal point and work off that. I always use a couple elements that wouldn’t be expected for example a small wreath, cutting board, banner, vase with flowers…or other seasonal decor. By mixing in other decorative elements to the framed artwork it really adds another layer of interest to the wall.
I’m really excited to show you guys what I did with the ledges this fall! I started with a package of two black and white wood framed signs from the target dollar spot because I noticed that their frames matched the wood ones we have on the ledges. I also loved the cute sayings about fall. I fell in LOVE with THIS set of art prints on Etsy and just had to include them in some frames. They are inexpensive because they are for download. I prefer this because I can quickly get the files emailed after purchase and bring them to a local print center. It’s such a quick inexpensive way to find wall decor, plus supporting an artist! Once I added these pumpkin harvest photos it basically took the whole display to another level.
At first I tried making all my own art, which was fun but it was too much of the same thing. Once I mixed the photographs with my scrapbook paper abstract art (which I made by simply tearing paper in my color cheme and layering/overlapping it) the combination of fall signs overlapping the harvest photographs, is a lovely juxstaposition and adds more dimension to the ledges.
To finish off the fall art ledges and bring in more detail, I added some small wheat picks that I found in the target dollar spot section, I slid them between the overlapping frames and I love the texture it adds to the whole display. The pumpkin cutting boards peek through behind the frames giving more depth than just wall space. The twinkle lights just make everything extra cozy, too.
There you have it! My fall art ledges were very inexpensive, I didn’t even spend over $25 to change out this display, it was very easy and I love how cozy this wall space feels in our living room. What do you think of my fall art ledges? Do you have a favorite of all the seasons so far? I’m not sure I can decide! But fall has my heart for sure.
