Large Groupings of Small Objects

Let's face it, we all want something in our home that makes a statement, but we all can't afford that million dollar painting or gold wall sconces. I think one of the easiest and most cost efficient ways to create a focal point is to gather a large grouping of objects on one wall. Most of you are familiar with the concept of several framed pictures or pieces of artwork, and I love this look too.
Large groupings tend to give the feel of a collection of things that you have gathered over the years rather than just running out to buy one large thing. It also allows the eye to see the entire effect of the grouping rather than just one object which gives the wall more interest. Below are some examples of various groupings that might just work on your own walls:

Below, you can see that other objects of similar styles create an impact when grouped:

So think outside the box! Check your attic or even some thrift stores and look for any objects that you like that might work: old wall sconces, mirrors, basket lids, etc. Possibly paint them all the same color and let the texture and shape of each one create interest. So get going and group those objects to make your own focal masterpiece!
