8. A Modern Mix

An interior designer named Laura Hur created this modern gallery wall. The shapes and sizes of the pieces are all different, and the artwork that sits on the credenza complement the gallery very well. Hur said, “I think that the most successful gallery walls showcase artwork that has been collected over time, rather than deciding you want a gallery wall and purchasing all of the art right before you install it. Successful gallery walls are personal and tell the story of the home’s occupants. Ideally, the artwork included serves as a pleasant or even emotional reminder of different stages and places in our lives—something we want to recall every time we look at that piece of art.”

Art is so inspiring, it’s sometimes hard to pick just one of our favorite prints. That’s why a gallery wall is so brilliant. You can display an entire collection all at once. This example shows a lot of colorful prints that the homeowner has collected over time. The frames are not identical, so it adds to the eclectic spirit of the project. It truly compliments the blue velvet chairs that are in this living room. There’s nothing boring about this space!

6. Feminine Living Room

It’s rare to describe a gallery wall as “sexy”, but that’s exactly how his feminine arrangement feels. A small living room space is made to feel elevated with the images hanging above an L-shaped couch. The designer of this wall, Gemma Louise, gave some advice on her blog. “ I don’t think there is a wrong way to create a gallery wall. I’ve seen beautiful gallery walls that are made up of what you may think would be clashing prints and frames, and they actually look insane. I really think it’s about how you arrange them and not what you arrange them with.”

5. Western Artist Wall

This stunning gallery wall is filled with black and white prints. The collection comes from Western artists, and it perhaps shows in the aesthetic of the home itself. Bamboo, black, and gold frames are all mixed together on the wall. Unlike most gallery walls, this one barely leaves any space between the images.

4. The Yellow Wall

A blog called Audenza featured a home of a woman named Amara who made her rental completely colorful and whimsical. This yellow wall and couch looks amazing with the rainbow of prints that are featured on the walls. When asked to give tips on gallery walls, Amara said, “I love a gallery wall especially in the room where you entertain guests because they can often become a talking point. A great gallery wall, in my eyes, always needs a whimsical element! Choose prints and artwork which invite the eye to explore the details. It is meant to make a statement, so don’t hesitate to make it loud. A little renters tip, if you aren’t allowed to drill nails in the walls, choose lightweight frames with plastic front instead of glass so you can hang them easily with adhesive hooks.”

3. Shades of Red

For those of you who want to have a color story, look no further than this photograph. You can see how the shades of red in the paintings tie in with the furniture in this room, as well as the red on the accent pillows. Technically, nothing is matching perfectly, and yet it looks cohesive as if everything was done with intention.  If you want more tips on making a timeless gallery wall, check this one out on Apartment Therapy.

2. Eclectic Arrangement

This eclectic gallery wall comes from Real Simple magazine. They recommend finding an anchor piece first, and then use that to build upon with more pictures. In this photo, you can see that they even used a plant as part of the decor. If you are interested in buying any of the pieces from this gallery wall, check out the list of prices on Real Simple.

1. Dining Room Mix

Normally, I would say that hanging a poster on a wall could become tacky very quickly. (Especially without a frame) But in this case, it works incredibly well together. When you choose  a poster, don’t just default to your favorite band or movie. Look at how these works of art are amazing prints when they’re in a larger size. This dining room space will never be boring again.
