It’s quite popular, a gallery wall. You come across them in home magazines and programs, an entire wall of art and prints. Everything is coordinated and it forms one beautiful whole.
Making a gallery wall yourself for the first time can be a bit intimidating. In this blog I will help you on your way.
What is a gallery wall and why do you choose it?
A gallery wall is a wall with different types of frames and different works of art, photos and posters and / or cards.
The advantage of a gallery wall is that you have several things to look at. If you work with frames, you can change the prints from time to time to have a new look.
Before you start:
It is smart to first think carefully about how you create unity on the wall.
When using multiple art prints and paintings on one wall, you pay attention to three things.
It is best to look for one or two matches and vary one or two with the other.
You can of course also vary with all three and thus create a very dynamic whole. It is then more difficult to make the wall become a unit. So make sure there is a common denominator somewhere to create unity.
Similarities and variation
For example, every work has a blue color somewhere. Or each frame is the same size, but there is a lot of variation in the colors or the type of work. Or each work is related to a certain subject. For example: nature, flowers, architecture, ect.
In addition to the common denominator, you can provide a lot of variety with the other elements, from graphic work to landscapes, abstract and figurative to make it a fascinating whole.
Have fun creating your gallery wall.
