Set Up

Before you begin designing your gallery wall, take size and space into account. Choosing shapes that appeal to you and that best complement the size of your wall can make all the difference. Keep in mind that you can even hang several smaller items together inside a larger shadow box, or arrange them in a way that creates the illusion of one big piece.

For a traditional feel, go for more squared-off shapes. Round shapes work well to achieve a casual or cottage-style look, while organic shapes help create a transitional, modern style.

Also, think about whether or not you want to incorporate a consistent theme, such as using clocks, farmhouse wall art, specific color patterns or another decor motif.

Mixing Old and New

One of the best ways to personalize your wall is to incorporate your favorite items, both old and new, in ways that showcase your style and tastes. Old favorites like family mementos and travel souvenirs can come in handy here.

Find a variety of wall décor that fits your overall theme, whether it’s glam, industrial chic or farmhouse style. Creating a mix of items will keep the eye moving and the room interesting.

Using Mirrors

Another simple way to style your gallery wall is with a mirror collage. Play around with various shapes, sizes and coordinating colors for a chic, glimmering statement wall. Mirrors can do wonders for small spaces, making them appear larger while still serving a functional purpose.

Add Texture and Lighting

Texture and lighting can make all the difference, too! Set the tone with wall tapestry, two-dimensional wall sculptures or ornate wall plaques. A dramatic play of shadow and light with a downward shining sconce can also produce an alluring affect.

Mix and match various textures and designs in complementary colors and patterns. Textile window treatments like Roman shades or drapes can help create a more cohesive look too.

Using a Window

A gallery wall is one surefire way to turn your window into a stunning focal point. Choose a window that has ample wall space surrounding it – even a corner window will do. Woven Wood Shades, faux wood blinds and woven wood blinds are all great options that pair well with coordinating wood-tone frames for a charming yet contemporary look.

If your gallery wall suits your personal taste and space, you’ll know it’s done right. Now, just sit back and let the window light showcase your creative masterpiece.
