One of the biggest challenges of decorating is picture hanging. There are just so many choices when it comes to putting things on your walls. How high do I hang my art? How many things should I hang? Am I hanging the right size piece of art for the space? What do I use to hang my art pieces. Etc. Etc. Etc.
Remember when I helped one of our readers last year. I pointed out a problem with an art piece in her kitchen. I called it the “lone ranger” and gave her many tips on how to create a wall of interest surrounding this piece of family history.
While there are some rules to successfully executing an amazing gallery wall there are also many options that fit all types of styles. Take this picture for example, the look of this gallery is modern. By using the same frames, bright white backgrounds, and straight lines, this home owner achieved a modern gallery wall.
Gallery walls don’t have to be pieces of expensive art instead they can display a story of your life. Using photographs that are the right scale for a large wall can create a big impact. Using picture hanging hardware systems make it easy to switch out photographs over time.
Your gallery wall can be as colorful or monochromatic as you want. Both color choices create interest and beautiful displays. Above the monochromatic styling of this wall fits this homes entryway perfectly.
Using matching styled frames is always an option. Gallery walls are also very interesting when several of the same frames are used in sets. In the gallery above the homeowner uses 3 black frames, 4 white frames, 2 gold frames and so on to create a colorful wall displaying her collection of famous females. Source
No matter what you display or how you choose to display it, remember that collections tell a story and can create high interest. Using bold colored frames is a definite show stopper.
