If you have pictures and art work lying around with no clue of what to do with them, then this is the best way to get your creative juices going. I keep having to delete stuff from my phone to create space for all the pictures I keep taking especially of my daughter. If you are like me, then we need to put those pictures on a gallery wall. There are many areas of the house that you could put up a gallery and the best place would have to be a wall that gets natural light.
Here are some practical tips and style ideas to create an Instagram worthy, perfectly imperfect gallery wall that won’t cost an arm and a leg.
Balance and symmetry are key to creating a gallery wall. Start with the largest piece and use it as the focal point. Work from the center out. Lay the art out on the floor and cut newspaper to the size of each piece. Using masking tape, position the paper on the wall as you would the art, then try a few different arrangements until you’re satisfied.
In a busy room, such as this, go with a theme color; the common hue here is brown. I love an accent wall with a gallery on it. It is the center of attention.
I love this gallery wall. The tones balance the room perfectly while providing the perfect pop of color by use of gold accents. The picture frames may not always be the same size but the boundaries in the pictures give them a sense of uniformity.
When having guests over for dinner, your mix of vintage and personal art gallery could be a cool topic of discussion.
If you have no idea what to do with the empty space above your Tv, then why not put up a gallery like this one? So, cool!
I did a post on this a while back, check it out here.
Put up some exciting pictures on your gallery above your work station in your home office for some motivation.
Staircases are often overlooked when it comes to decorating. This gallery draws in the eye by staggering work along the staircase wall. You can tell the homeowner is fun and playful too.
There is no limit to where you can and cannot have pictures in a room. Since the bedroom is where you come to unwind, keep it spacious by limiting your gallery to two rows.
Mix up your gallery with a couple of hats to have it popping!
For a flexible and high impact display, use existing floating shelves to create a cool gallery.
