Helloooo gallery wall!
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve been putting together a gallery wall for Frankie’s room. But rather than just art, I’ve been mixing prints with fabrics, tickets, keepsakes and various mementos. Kind of like a scrapbook on the wall! I even framed Frankie’s TINY pink hospital bracelet, which even though it’s such a simple piece my heart melts every time I look at it. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favourite gallery walls as inspiration, as well as nine ideas for how to style yours.
We’ve put together a few gallery wall ideas, which will hopefully inspire you when you’re putting your own together.
How to Choose The Right Gallery Wall Layout
Space Obviously one of the key elements of your gallery wall will be the space that you want to put it in, mainly in terms of the size of the wall. But don’t feel you have to fill the whole wall – you can do a vertical or horizontal section only if that works better or if your collection is limited.
Collection The types of frames and elements that you want to integrate will determine the best gallery layout, and whether it is symmetrical or more random in the layout. Rule of thumb? If you have similar sized frames or identical type pieces, go for symmetry, if you have more eclectic pieces a random design will be better.
Design When deciding on your gallery wall, think about the design of the room and how the art or collection will add to that. Also consider how the furniture and colour palette will work together.
Here are a few of my favourite gallery walls from around the internet. You can see that I’m really drawn to the mix & match layout! Stay tuned for the pics of Frankie’s wall, and a little how to.
