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.
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.”

Technically, nothing is matching perfectly, and yet it looks cohesive as if everything was done with intention.

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.
