Working the wall.

For the last few months, I have been searching for the perfect picture hanging arrangment for the long living room wall in my new apartment. I am painting the wall a lovely dark greyish blue colour. Inspiration for the colour comes from the walls of one of the exhibition rooms of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona. The paint looks really close to this one featured on Apartment Therapy but I'll be using Abysee from Flamant.

So, introducing the contenders:

First, we have this gorgeous array of prints framed in colour washed borders. The gradually varying frame sizes add to the visual interest of the wall.

This beige wall gets more interesting with the addition of simple white frames with different size images and borders.

I really like the grouping and sizes of these frames but I would probably choose to keep the frames in one colour family.

I don't think we have a winner yet so the search continues!!!
