Small Frames Big Impact

While flipping through Elle Decor's September 2012 issue, I found a great article on displaying framed art in mass quantity.

Everything looked nice but the standout for me was this image:

The artwork here are color studies by Günther Förg. Sometimes bold and punchy colors are all you need to energize a room.

But what makes this image extra special is the realization you don't need an enormous work of art to make a big impact. Rather, lots of identical, small frames clustered together (notice how they are all touching) visually create one extra large piece of art.

And here's the best part — you don't need to purchase lots of art prints to do this either. You could easily paint this yourself or create a similar look by pairing two contrasting colors of paper next to each other in a frame. Or create it on the computer and print it out. Lots of small ways to add a big and colorful impact to your home.
