Tips For Creating a Perfectly Eclected Gallery Wall


In my opinion, gallery walls are supposed to be fun.  They are a great way to fill a large wall and showcase your personality without spending a lot of money.  They don't have to match or be symmetrical to be amazing.  Some of my favorite gallery walls are ones that look collected and showcase a variety of frames, shapes and textures.  A lot of people tend to be scared when creating gallery walls, but you don't have to be.  Have fun and make it your own!

  • Lay frames on the floor and arrange until you are happy with the layout. Use painters tape or cut paper to frame sizes to help transfer your layout to the wall. 
  • Vary frame sizes- start with one or two larger frames then fill in the gaps with smaller frames.
  • Hang frames both vertical and horizontal.
  • Mix up the color, style and shape of frames - Don't get hung up on matching frames.  As long as you are staying within a color scheme your frames will look collected, yet intentional.
  • Make it personal- It's your home and your place to show your personality. Display special artwork or personal effects that remind you of your family and special memories.  I especially like to display the letter "A" (for my last name) and the number "4" (for the 4 members in our family.)
  • Hang frames no less than 1 inch apart.  You're going for eclectic and intentional not crowded and forced.

  1. Any tips for hanging pictures on stairs? I have a house full of boys and I envision the pictures getting knocked down shortly after they are hung...

    1. I feel your pain! I use command strips on the back of frames to keep them in place. This stops them from falling and moving when you're dusting :)
