Gallery Walls Fit for the Met

Gallery walls add tons of character and dimension to an otherwise flat and boring blank canvas. As we’ve discussed before, layering with art is a great trick to liven up a space. Several pieces clustered together draw attention and spark curiosity.

What to Hang on a Gallery Wall

Gallery walls can handle pretty much anything. Examples: paintings on canvas, framed photos, tapestries, shadowboxes. A meaningful art collection is built over time and chances are, you already have wall-worthy works in your possession. Dust them off and get them up!

Where to Create a Gallery Wall

Fortunately, there are opportunities to be found all over the house for an artistic display. In fact, some of the most successful galleries pop up in unexpected places: hallways, under stairwells, bathrooms. Maintain cohesiveness with frame sizes, colors and styles or mix it up! Somehow, art always looks good collected together, no matter how mismatched.
