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.

Be creative with your framing choices with some of these globally influenced framing options.

With a real lack of travel opportunity recently, our cultural itches remain unscratched. Try bringing the rich history and styling of your favourite destinations into your home. You can achieve a very tasteful cultural x-factor by using eclectic global accents available in frame styles, throws, cushions and artwork.

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.
