HOW TO: Building a Gallery Wall. 1. Choose larger pieces as anchors. 2. Choose a color scheme. 3. Play with scale - vary the size and orientation of the art. 4. Keep at least 1.5" - 3" between each piece. 5. Allow at least 6" between the couch and the first frame. 6. Use 2 to 3 styles of frames. 7. Use different mediums of art - photography, art prints, gift wrap, decorative objects, etc.
How To Create A Gallery Wall by Lillian Hope Designs
when hanging frames, draw imaginary lines. Line Art (top): If you have a generous amount of horizontal wall space, draw an imaginary line on your wall and place artwork, photos or decorative plates above and below the line so your display feels balanced. Squared Away (bottom): If you want to fill vertical wall space, such as in an entryway or grand foyer, create a square or rectangle on your wall with painter's tape and loosely arrange your pieces inside. via @raymourflanigan
