When gathering artwork for your wall, it’s important to choose items that go together but aren’t matchy-matchy. This will create a steady stream of uniqueness. Whether you’re pulling art from your collection or shopping mostly for new pieces, there are a few helpful guidelines to follow to ensure your gallery wall feels cohesive.
*eH insight: Repeating colors at least 2-3 times will tie everything together smoothly. Not every piece needs to have the same shade(s) as the next, but every piece should have 1-2 other pieces that share a similar color or tone to it. As a result, this monochromatic theme will maintain a clean and balanced look.
Gallery walls require a lot of symmetry to look connected and creative. If you’re building a photo wall with a bunch of family pictures, you may opt for a wall frame collage—it’s up to you. Tracing and testing out different options is a great way to visualize how your gallery wall will look.
Guidelines: A successful wall gallery keeps art at an equal distance. Use a ruler to guide your placement and aim for 3–6 inches between each piece of art. There should be plenty of space between the frames and trim and molding so the gallery wall has room to breathe.
Once you’ve hung up your artwork, you can enhance your gallery wall even more by using 3D objects as eye-catching gallery wall art – This will add dimension to a wall and fill in any awkward spaces left between two pieces.
