How to create the perfect Gallery Wall

Trends come and go. Many fashion trends that are implemented into interiors such as colours, prints and different styles, change from season to season. A design element, in particular, that I find to be timeless, is a gallery wall. The beauty about this design element is that it is so versatile it can be a feature in any room of the house and can be created in a style which suits you. 

Gallery walls can be found in residential design as well as commercial design. It provides many functions. The most appealing gallery walls are ones which combine a variety of art sizes and frame styles. A way in which this would work beautifully is by choosing a colour scheme or art style so even if the frames are different sizes and styles they will still compliment each other. 

Ultimately, your wall should represent you, your style and personality. If using different sized frames, begin with the larger ones and place smaller ones around it. The frame style is a matter of personal preference, however, it should compliment the art its framing. The best place to hang your art is at eye-level. 

Gallery walls are super fun to create and make a stunning focal point in any room. 

Below are some fabulous examples. Enjoy!

    Oh I love a gallery wall. I completely agree that they're a timeless addition to a home. I find them a great way to introduce colour to a more neutral colour scheme too.
