Using Vintage Hankies To Decorate The Bedroom

Vintage hankies can make interesting wall décor! These treasures of yesteryear are beautifully made with lace and stamped patterns. Have them framed in vintage style frames for a striking effect. Frame them either folded in a corner or fully extended depending on the pattern. Hanging them on your walls can be easy if you follow the tips below.

You can use flea market finds or hankies that belonged to your grandmother, but either way you'll need to set them up in a nice frame. Once you have done that, pick a spot that needs decorating and hang up your new artwork.

Stand back and take a good look. Does it look great or is there something just not right about it?

There are a few common errors that are made while hanging and arranging items on a wall. These errors look awkward to the eye, but you cannot put a finger on exactly what is wrong or how to fix it. Use the guidelines below when arranging hankies on a wall:

Hanging Large Pieces:

Hankies in large frames can be the focus of your décor so you must make sure you hang them in a spot that is appropriate for the size and focus. Where is the best spot to hang large décor? Try over the bed if you don't have a headboard, behind the couch, over a fireplace or on a feature wall. A feature wall is where the placement of furniture or the layout of the home naturally guides the eye to a wall - a great place to feature hankies.

Hanging Small Pieces:

Grouping smaller pieces can add interest and keep them from getting "lost". Using similar or matching frames and matting make this look more pleasing. If you don't have a group, a smaller piece should be hung low and close to the furniture.

Hanging Pieces In Groups:

The key to grouping pieces together is to space them properly. Space them about 3" away from each other. Try positioning them on the floor or a table to get a pleasing arrangement before placing the nails and measure carefully before making any holes.

Height:

Framed hankies should be hung with the center of the hanky at eye level. That means the center should be about 60 to 66 inches from the floor. If you've visited a gallery you will see that the frames are not lined up by their top or bottom edges but that the pictures are all centered at the same height. If your hanky will be viewed from a sitting position ? like from a chair or chaise, you should hang at the eye level of the sitter.

Anything hung behind the couch should be placed no more than 8 or 10 inches above the back of the couch. These easy tips will have you creating a unique and interesting designer look with vintage hankies in no time!
