A gallery wall instantly helps to bring a space alive. Besides adding a striking touch to a blank wall, a well-laid display of photos and prints is also perfect for showcasing memories or flaunting precious art pieces. Whether it’s in the living room, kitchen, or bedroom, a gallery wall can also instantly change the mood and look of a space whilst easily elevating the overall aesthetic of the room.
Turn your gallery wall dreams into reality with these inspiring ideas, below.
1. Embrace different sizes and colours
A bold mix of hues in the living room of a family home gives it a playful feel, which is enhanced by the striking artworks. Bright shades abound on the gallery-style wall around the TV—which features an eclectic mix of vintage prints, original artworks and a delightful paper fan—while a set of black-and-white photos on the other wall offsets all the bold colours beautifully. The use of a wide range of differently sized pieces on the gallery wall also works to engage and hold the viewer’s interest.
The black-and-white photographs are by South African director Clive Will, and the painted wooden Tintin figurines and Lucky Star tin-can stool were bought in the Democratic Republic of the Congo during the owners’ travels.
