A lot of visitors commented on our Atlas art in the bathroom at the DC Design House. Making it was simple: we cut up a couple of vintage road atlases, grabbed the glue stick, and framed them in IKEA.
We have blogged about using maps as art before, and love the idea of using a needle and thread to capture road trip or vacation memories. We also like the idea of cutting up newspapers to remember special events or moments in history.
We always like to incorporate kid's art into a family home, as we did at the DC Design House.
Create a hip kid's art gallery wall anywhere in the house with the right framing.
Last year, at the Rehoboth Beach VIA Show House, our shell wall got a lot of admirers. The idea was that house guests would find a shell on the beach, glue it to a card, and write their names and dates as a way to capture beach memories.
You don't have to be at the beach to try your hand at a collage wall. Make use of spare buttons, vintage brooches, or stamps!
