When people think about displaying art, many immediately consider hanging it up on the walls for everyone to see. While this is a foolproof idea, it isn't the only way to showcase masterpieces—leaning art against furniture or the floor is a trend we should look into as well.

Aside from being a great solution to renter woes (you don't have to drill holes for hooks!), it lends a casual vibe to any space and it makes switching up the look of a room much easier as you can simply move pieces around. Short on styling ideas? Check out these photo pegs that might just convince you to cop the look.

Give your nightstand extra flair with a few of your favorite prints. Simply propping it up between the table and the wall gives it a playful street art vibe.

No headboard? No problem. Instead of going for a traditional piece, consider layering a few of your favorite paintings on the shelf above your bed.

Is your work space in need of an inspiration boost? Try arranging a couple of your favorite art pieces and quotes along your desk. You can also choose to go with a monochromatic color scheme for a subtle and non-distracting display. 


For those who really enjoy hanging art but also want to try out this trend, you can enjoy the best of both worlds! Combining these two styles of displaying art adds an effortless and easygoing feel to your space.
