Creating a gallery wall in your home is such a unique and creative way to show of your personality and to showcase art and photos that mean a lot to you. Gallery walls have been all the rage the last few years in home decorating and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere soon.
They are striking, creative, and create lots of visual interest on a wall. That being said, sometimes they can get a little redundant: frame, after frame, after frame. To create more interest on your gallery wall, try hanging things other than your standard picture frame. There are lots of other great options of decor to hang on your wall and just because it doesn’t “match” the other frames, doesn’t matter.
Gallery walls don’t have to match, they just have to look like a cohesive unit. Mirrors are a great alternative to picture frames. Mirrors can still have frames and they can still resemble the shape of your other picture frames. Another option are clocks. Now a days there are so many great options for wall clocks and they make great decorative wall pieces to include in a gallery wall. They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, so you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for your home.
If you have a beautiful plate sitting in your kitchen cabinets because you can’t bare the thought of eating off of it, hang it up as an art piece in your gallery wall. It’s an unexpected touch that’ll look creative and fun.
When comes to arranging your wall gallery, if you are hanging multiple pieces of art pick one to be the focal point and main center of the collage. The grouping of pictures should be considered one unit. They should all have a similar theme whether it be subject matter or color scheme to build a collected look. Test arrangements by laying everything out and comparing which combinations look best.
