7 Gallery Walls That Are Actually Doable

May 15 2014 - 6:04am

Need a little creative motivation to finally hang those photos and display your favorite prints? Look no further — we found gallery walls that will inspire you to showcase your art in a way that is unique to you and your home. Easier than you think, gallery walls create a relaxed way of styling without having to worry about the rules of scale and spacing . . . because there are none! Here are seven ways to try this trend — your art deserves to be seen!

Start Small

If you're just beginning to build your art collection, start by resting photos against a wall, overlapping them for a relaxed vibe. Stack books and other eclectic accents to accessorize your art.

Add Paper

Alone, wallpaper and a collection of photos can make an impact, but together they make a statement. It works partly because the white couch acts as a neural foundation for the splashes of greens and aquas.

Go Big

Although everything is perfectly placed, this room looks more like an art studio than a living room. A look like this works best using oversized photos, hanging the largest and staggering the others around it.

Fill Up

This space turned a room divider into art with a gallery wall. By filling the entire wall, the floating wall becomes both the backdrop and the focal point for the living room.

Shelf It

Instead of a gallery wall, try a gallery shelf! Long shelves hung above the desk showcase a collection of framed photos. It's a great alternative to using a cork board for inspiration in a home office [9].

Stack Up

We love how this dining room features a collection of photos above the fireplace. Since it's rather unexpected — compared to a mirror — it modernizes the traditional art and architecture.

Keep it Classic

White walls practically beg for a classic gallery set up. Framed art and hanging sculptures add depth and texture to plain walls.
