1. Frames aren't necessary.
Although one might say that frames are a necessity to creating a proper gallery, if you find the right artwork to display, you can do away without them. If you prefer to hang your art directly on the wall, consider using clips or even washi tape to make the switching of pieces easier.
2. Use varying sizes of photos and prints.
For an organic and effortless vibe, try using different sizes and shapes of frames. Don't forget to add one striking piece to anchor the collection and keep it balanced.

4. Try composing a grid a la Instagram.

5. Pick a timeless color palette.
The best way to make sure your display looks cohesive? Choose colors that would stand the test of time—go for classic combinations such as black and white or stick to neutrals for a more dainty feel.
