Here is a great way to decorate a bare wall or entry way in sophistication and style...
Make your very own gallery of art on an accent wall! Find interesting objects that you might want to frame. Mix art pieces of different colors. Choose framed work in interesting sizes and shapes.
In my opinion, a clean wall of art works better than a cluttered organization. I would put the largest pieces on the sides and smaller frames in the middle to create balance. Lining up the bottoms of the frames horizontally makes your custom gallery look polished. Pairing duplicates together creates a sense of unity :)
The linear organization of art above the brown sofa in the first photograph works best for me.
