I’ve always found it interesting to see art or photographs layered when they are just propped up on a mantel. Or furniture. Or on a shelf or ledge. It’s such a cool effect!
It’s like you’re saying, “I have so much great art and pictures I’m proud of that I just can’t stand to not have them all out there for the entire world to see!” But not in a tacky, show-off kind of way, but in a my-life-is-so-full-of-meaning-and-special-moments-and-people kind of way.
Layered art is a great solution for people wanting to downsize, or for those who lack wall space in a new home and need a creative way to display their collection of art and/or photographs.
It’s also a good idea for the suburbians of the world - those of us who live way out here in big, open plan houses with big windows and little to no available wall space at all.
But be prepared. Areas with layered art tend to serve as an invitation for visitors to peruse the stack, like in an art gallery. It’s such a great way to get a conversation going.
Or to let your room say something about you!
