The Art of the Gallery Wall
- Scale- consider the size of your wall compared to the size of the piece. It is important to make sure the piece is large enough to truly be the focal piece but not too large that it is the only thing that can fit on the wall
- Spacing- how many complimentary pieces do you want on the wall? Only want 2 or 3? Want to do a whole bunch of items? There is no wrong choice here, but the key is to actually make a choice and have a plan. So, that means you need to consider that spacing.
- Type - What is the vibe of the wall you are looking to capture? Rustic? Eclectic? Sleek? Are you wanting to do a mixture of photos and wall art? All 2D or mix in a few 3D pieces? Again, thinking through your final plan will help guide you in how to start and anchor the gallery wall.
- Colors - Feeling monochromatic or wanting a full color wall? Are you painting the background or keeping that beloved agreeable grey?
