Stylemaker Tips for Creating a Gallery Wall
Three home bloggers give their best tips for putting together a gorgeous gallery wall.
When putting together your own gallery wall, I would suggest going outside of the box, thinking of something unconventional and using things that you wouldn't normally think of as pieces of art to hang on the wall. The number one tip I think I would give somebody is to not stress about it. There's really not a wrong way. To do a gallery wall. And there's always decorating guidelines, you know, but I don't think there's ever decorating rules and if there are, then I think, feel free to break them. When creating a gallery wall, think about spacing, so you want about two to four inches between the frames. Also think about overlapping them horizontally and vertically to keep your eye moving through the wall. My next tip would be to make a template. I use paper and I trace each item and then put tape on the back so that I can place it on the wall and I can see how I like it. And then you can move it around, and then you're not damaging your walls. You wanna mix in a few organic shapes like the starburst mirror. It really helps break up the square of the frames and it helps the gallery wall from looking too static. Include something three dimensional something that sticks out from the wall so no everything on your wall is. Splash, and it kind of all blends together. Think about function. I added shelves and a pinboard to my gallery wall. That really helps organize every day office clutter and keeps your desk clutter free. Definitely keep your personal style in mind, to not try to copy something that you found on Pinterest and make it exactly like that. Take into account what the rest of your house looks like. Add in personal photos and things. From trips that have memories for you. Because I feel like a gallery wall is really an opportunity to reflect your personality and show people who you are and what you love. [MUSIC]
