What should I do with a blank wall in my office?

Filed under: Creativity,Workspace — lidia @ 10:00 am

Those of you that follow me on Pinterest may have seen my board “Blank wall in my office.” I’ve been collecting inspiration for, you guessed it, a blank wall in my office.

I know I could fill it with framed artwork, but I also want to make it functional. I find it useful to post designs-in-progress, so that’s one of my goals for the blank wall.

My criteria for the blank wall:

  1. Something I will enjoy looking at daily
  2. Ample room to post design work-in-progress
  3. A place to display finished project samples
  4. An area to collect ever-changing creative inspiration (i.e. a real-life Pinterest)
  5. Hanging methods that don’t damage the walls

So far, here are some nice ideas I’ve come across:

Clipboards | via decor8 blog

Drapery wire and clips | via shelterness

What would you do/have you done with a blank wall in your office?
