Gallery Walls Bring Style And Personality To Any Home

Tuesday, May 17th, 2022

Creating a gallery wall is a simple way to bring style and personality to any home. It is a particularly great way to tell the story of your family and friends. It does not need to be done all at once; start with a few and build it up over time. All you need is a few basic tools and accessories. You will absolutely love the experience; from short listing your best photos or art, right through to the rewarding and impressive end result!

Here are our top tips for curating a successful gallery wall:

Go bold! Don’t be afraid to mix it up with frames, art, photos or colours; as this gives a real meaningful and personal feel. It’s an excellent point of interest and a conversation starter in your home.

Go the chic look: selecting one type of frame and using consistent photo filters like, black and white or sepia will give a really sleek look.

Create your composition using both landscape and portrait images to add geometric interest.

Add in some mat board techniques for a real wow factor.

If you are planning to go big straight away, think about your wall space size and map your layout on the floor. Ideally trace your layout onto some big sheets of light tracing paper and tape it to the wall. This will guide you on where to tap in your hangers.

We expect European influences as well as countries representing a bohemian hand-crafted vibe to be popular in 2022. These brand-new framing options are perfect to bring the romance of travel into your home.

Balance is the key

Thursday, January 14th, 2021

BY PAULA GOWLAND 

When it comes to framing your photos and artwork, one size does not fit all. There are a number of decisions to be made, including style, colour, texture, and proportion, that can make or break a design. Balancing all these elements is key. A successful design will keep the focus on your artwork, not its surroundings, you don’t want to see the framing when you look at your overall piece, you want the frame to enhance your piece.

One of your first choices in the design process is colour. Colours that are too bold or too bright can make your art look washed out. A better option for you may be to choose a variation of a colour in your print. This will help draw your eye to the artwork, not detract from it. Your next step is to select a frame style. Current trends may seem like the easy choice, but they are not always right for your custom frame. On the other hand, period frames may seem too ornate or elaborate for your personal taste. The key is to find the right balance and choose a style that works for you and for your artwork. Finally, it is important to keep proportion in mind. If you add a pattern to your frame design, make sure it is to scale and coordinates with your print or photo. Large patterns and textures can dwarf delicate or detailed images. The size of your finished piece is also important. A small frame placed on a large wall can get lost, while a large frame in a small space can feel overwhelming or suffocating. Consider where you will be displaying your art and the frame’s proportion to the room.
