Artistic Eye: Gallery Wall

Hello Fabulistas! If you’re like me, you always have some spare framed photos and pieces of art around your home that you haven’t found a place for just yet. What a fabulous problem to have! No fear, because one trend that’s oh-so-easy and popular in interiors right now is the gallery wall. It’s exactly what it sounds like, a wall filled with framed, (or unframed), photos, prints, and just about anything else. Here are some gallery wall ideas to keep in mind while creating your own:

Mix it up 

Some people prefer to mismatch things. I say that if that’s your style, embrace it! Do what feels right! On this gallery wall, the shapes, frames, and art all differ. It gives off a chic, eclectic style without looking cluttered or messy.

Transform a space into a room

There are always limits on what you can do in a hallway, but as wall art goes, the sky’s the limit! This added-on-to-over-time gallery wall forces your eye to linger a little longer than if you walked by one or two pieces of wall art. What a fabulous use of space!

Concentrate on shapes

The neural shades of the art and frames make this more of a study of shapes up against this pale wall. There’s something so chic and soothing about this setup!

Create order with continuity

If your space is traditional–and you’d like to keep it that way–go with frames of the same size and matching art. The combo of 15 pieces feel like one when they’re grouped together so nicely in this living room.
