Top 5 ideas to hang (or not) your favorite prints or photos

Decorating your space involves or course adorning walls with art, prints, and treasured photos. It's a great way to insert your personality into your decor and really make the space feel like home. However, framing might be a quite expensive option. Luckily, there are many other ways to display art, prints and photos in budget-friendly, beautiful ways. 

Hanging Frame

As you may know, we just added 2nd Shift Studio to our maker’s list. We are so happy to carry their amazing print hanging frames and very proud to be the only Canadian shop offering the brand. This being said it gives me the idea to share with you my top 5 ideas to hang (or not) your favorite prints or photos on the wall.

On top of my list is of course 2nd Shift Studio print hanging frame made of oak and brass. I am in love with its sleek and minimalist look. Any prints will look amazing paired with this perfectly crafted piece.

Another option from local maker Baltic Club. They offer two wood options in 2 sizes. I have not seen them but I am sure it’s well made.

Washi Tape

I also like to use washi tape to hang my prints and photos as it is fast and easy (and inexpensive). Plus, if you choose the perfect washi tape it’s gonna look great on your wall. Here’s a few examples that demonstrate just that.

No Hanging Required (on shelves)

If you have a shelf that needs a little company simply lean some frames against the wall in a layered arrangement. It always look good and you don’t need to say all those crazy word while trying to hang a frame at the right spot on the wall. Use different frame sizes and colors it’s always nicer. Black and white is of course my favorites.
