A gallery wall is the perfect way to display a grouping of similar artworks, or to bring together a collection of mix and match pieces. When selecting pieces for your art wall, the subject and medium of your artworks matters less than the color and size of the pieces. Look for artworks with complementary color palettes and a nice variety of small and large pieces.
This poppy, mixed-media gallery complements the size and orientation of the wall, as well as the palette of the room’s decor.
A more masculine take on the art wall, we love the way the bold, abstract artworks span all the way from sofa to ceiling. Just be sure to leave a few inches above and below your highest & lowest artworks, respectively, to ensure your collection doesn’t look cramped.
If organic shapes aren’t your thing, hang artworks in a grid form for a more clean and polished look.
A grid art wall necessitates more homogeneity in subject matter and medium than the more relaxed, organic shapes of traditional gallery walls. To nail this look, you’ll want to stick with one medium, one frame type and 1-2 subject matters. You will also want to stick with one color palette. We love the black and white photography example above.
