Misconceptions of Gallery Walls

            Misconceptions of Gallery Walls

Misconceptions of Gallery Walls

I don't have paintings or artwork of value…said who?

You do not need to have real artwork.  Showcase things that mean something to you.  What have your grandparents given you or left behind, something from the antique market, a ticket stub, one of your favorite pictures from a trip, vintage license plate, a quote, a letter someone has written you.  Its endless what can be showcased and qualified as artwork.  The wall does not have to be perfect in the eyes of someone else.  It can be perfect for you.

Pro tip:  Hang the largest piece first and build around it.

My apartment or living space is too small, I have no space.   Are you kidding me? Let us think outside of the box here.  Staircase walls are the perfect set up for The Incline  look.  What about the entry way, thin tall wall, try stacking 3 frames.

You think it needs to be perfect.  Yes, I love order on the wall.  If you need order, check out The Block Party, this will give you what you crave.  Just remember Gallery Walls can be anything to suite your style, big, small, art, belongings, memorabilia etc.

Fear of Commitment.  Girl aren’t we all? LOL I have got you.  These frames are all interchangeable.  So, you can switch the picture anytime you want in 2 minutes with no wires or paper back to mess around with.  Then if you do not want to put any holes in the wall try The Shelf look.  Same frames just leaning on a shelf.

Big, Bold, and Beautiful, the triple B.  We all want to make a statement.  Look at The Modern Chic for some inspo.  This gives you all different size layouts.  Have fun with it!  Switch them up and play around.  This layout is perfect for above the couch or in the bedroom.
