When you’ve cho­sen the prints that you love, and de­cided on what goes to­gether and what’s more im­pact­ful on its own, it’s time to get them up on the walls. But hang­ing your frames — with the spirit level in hand — isn’t the only way to do things. If you’d pre­fer not to drill holes into the wall, prints can look re­ally ef­fec­tive when merely rested against it, on a con­sole ta­ble, for ex­am­ple. Some­times — in clut­ter-free en­vi­ron­ments — they look even bet­ter when they’re left on the floor (but lean­ing against the wall). This is best for larger prints. It’s an un­fin­ished look but one that’s very ef­fec­tive. Then there are the pic­ture ledges — which are read­ily avail­able in IKEA — where you can achieve the same look in a neater fashion. An­other idea here is to stag­ger a se­ries of old vinyl records to­gether.
