Gallery Walls- 10 Guaranteed to Inspire

 

One of the easiest ways to enrich the space in your Apartment is to create a Gallery Wall.

Don’t be intimidated. Expensive originals are NOT necessary!  Like I mentioned in the previous post Let’s Get Comfortable Please, even magazine covers can be art. Just make sure you have a balanced layout and nice frames.

I am currently working on a Gallery Wall for my living room.  I will share the completed project and tips in the next home decor post.

Meanwhile, enjoy the 10 Stunning Gallery Walls below.

Use a large wall to arrange frames of contrasting scale.

3.

No high ceilings, but you want to ignore that fact?  Try a gallery wall like the next one which starts low, elevates your eye, and gives a slight illusion of greater height.

4.

Not much space to hang frames?   You can create a small grouping like the following which features strongly contrasting black and whites for high impact.

Need privacy in an open floorplan?  Create a Gallery Wall with a room divider.

Think outside your four walls and create a Gallery Wall in an unconventional space like the bathroom.

What about  “framing” your art by inserting pieces into a bookshelf?

FYI, not all Gallery Walls require pieces that hang.  Layer multiple frames on shelves to create depth in your space.

Every room needs a focal point.  Look at how this Gallery Wall creates one in a bedroom.

  1. How would you suggest I go about hanging wall art when I am vertically challenged and don’t have room to store a ladder?
