We have a perfect wall in our living room for a gallery and last night I laid out a few pieces of art on the floor and played around with layout. It's tougher than you'd expect to get it just right, and it'll be another few weeks before I commit to a design (or maybe I'll go in another direction entirely, we will see).
I've gathered a few images here that inspire me, gallery walls that grab my attention, look effortless and chic, and hold none of the trendiness that can come with this look. I also tried to pinpoint exactly what about each one I like. I think that'll come in handy as I play around with art on my own walls!
I love the spacing of this first one, the variety of colors and frames and styles, and that lamp peeking out from the sea of art. This is perfect.
This floor-to-ceiling gallery is epic, and I like that there are plenty of teeny tiny frames mixed in with larger ones.
I think I like this one because it's relatively small, hangs low and close to the sofa, and includes some non-framed art (the clock and the antlers). The large drawing of the ladies anchors everything together.
A gallery wall that is too matchy is something that usually bugs me but this collection of antique gilded mirrors really speaks to me. Hanging them in a tall grid is just right for this space.
This one is a little sparse and to me it's brilliant. Oversized mats, not a lot of variety in size or color, and that mirror in the center make this gallery austere and subtle.
Also--hello--I guess I really love white walls.
What do you think of gallery walls? I can't wait to share what we end up with!
