more is better...

...when it comes to picture collages anyway.  I can't get enough of them.  Sometimes I like the very homogenous, organized walls of photos where all of the frames are the same color and the pictures tend to relate to each other somehow.  

very organized and chic
But lately, the quirky picture walls have really been capturing my imagination.  I l.o.v.e. the thought of framing old maps (especially nautical ones or ones with sentimental value), including unexpected objects in the collage, showcasing an antique chart of some sort, and displaying a collection of vintage portraits.  I love old portraits like I love old houses.  I don't even care if I know the people in them.  I rather enjoy making up stories about how they would have lived and what they would have liked.

Framed maps on whitewashed wood paneling! What's not to love?
Vintage portraits and lots of them! that spindle bed doesn't hurt either :)
Quirky and glamorous

an old chart

Gold frames lend a worldly, regal feel
A bright, contemporary space with big mats around art
