I’m having so much fun styling my new art ledges since we installed them back in January. I love swapping out art/prints from my frames each season. Eventually I want to collect some art from local artists to display as well, there are just so many different ways to reflect your style and be creative with your wall decor. Today I wanted to share with you how I’m styling my art ledges as we near spring, along with a couple simple spring printables I made.
HERE are my art ledges and I ordered them in the largest size in white. I also ordered 6 frames in a wood finish (also linked HERE) I like the contrast of the wood against the white. The larger frames all hold an 8×10 photo size which is great because I can easily print photos at home to pop inside. I decided to keep the black and white photos of the kids and Ben and I in Paris because I love them so much. I wanted do so something in the frames that would look clean and fresh. I found these line drawings of floral stems from stock photos I have access too and added my own words to them in a font I liked. I then printed them on a grayish-blue cardstock paper just to add a little something different than just white background.
I like mixing in other elements to my art ledges depending on the season. For early spring/spring I added this adorable metal watering can (it’s flat on the back side). I added some little green blooms but really you could add any floral! I also mixed in a boxwood wreath and some wooden bunnies with a diagonal stripe. I recently found the bunnies at Homegoods/TJmaxx. What I love about these *extra* elements is that they add so much interest to the ledges and break up all the squares/rectangles. I always try to find a little bit of symmetry with layout, yet at the same time not make it too perfectly symmetrical. Does that make sense? 😉
What do you think? Do you like the simple spring touches to the art ledges? It’s neutral but I love the simplicity of the greens and black/white mixed with the blues and the greens in the room. Below are the printables that I created to share with you guys. If you use them in your home please share and tag me! I recommend using a cardstock paper in a soft pastel color or a gray like THIS:
