5 Must-Read Tips For Curating A Gallery Wall

Style a stunning display with these handy hints!


They say a beautifully decorated home must have two well-executed displays—a vignette and a gallery wall. The latter isn't new to anyone, from celebrity spaces to designer boards on Pinterest, everyone seem to be riding the train of hanging prints and posters. 

If you want to hop on the next stop of this design trend, we've put together a list of smart tips that will keep you from turning your living area into a costly mess but leaving you with a mesmerizing setup that guests won't be able to stop looking at. 

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.  

3. Consider using matching frames. 

If you want to experiment with loud prints and bold colors, you can try using matching frames to neutralize the final look. It will also give the illusion of a streamlined display even if the art pieces don't match.  

4. Try composing a grid a la Instagram. 

Bring your #feedgoals to life by printing out your favorite photos and using square frames to hang them up. This look is a great idea for minimalist-inspired spaces as it incorporates clean lines and symmetry. 

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.
