 I am currently moving to a new apartment. A huge favorite  feature at my previous apartmentwas my photo collage wall. I had probably 40 picture frames. I don't want to put that manyholes in the wall at my new place (nor do I think I'm allowed to). Do you have any stylishidea's to keep the original 40 frames without all the holes? Pictures?

For some really cool and versatile home decorating wall decor ideas, go to Susannah Tucker Photography. She creates beautiful wall art in the form of prints and photoblocks.  These are really easy to move if you decide to change them around - they can even sit freestanding on a shelf.  http://www.etsy.com/shop/SusannahTucker

Here is one solution.  It is a rod attached up at the ceiling and you suspend your pictures from it with wire.  You can hang them at different heights, one above the other, etc.  Click on the link for pictures. http://gallerysystem.com/  http://www.systematicart.com/servlet/StoreFront?gclid=COTm1beG_a4CFUQUKgod93O41Qhttp://www.ashanging.com/en/cable-systemYou could put the rod from corner to corner and then it will look more like a crown moulding and more decrative.  Hope this helps.
 This are very useful information Mrs. Peacock.

I think Mrs. Peacock has already suggested the best solution. You can go with her.Another option you have is placing the pictures in wall almirah. Most of the houses have many almirah built on the walls. If you place the pictures in them, they will not only look good but will remain safe, which is the concern with the solution given by Mrs. Peacock.

I love the chain solution, too. Suzanne Dimma has done this in the past: http://houseandhome.com/design/photo-gallery-suzanne-dimmas-houses?page=2

As has Houmed Arjomand of Gluckstein Design ... seen here: http://houseandhome.com/tv/segment/antique-filled-condo
