A gallery wall is a great opportunity to display family photos, photography, illustrations, and other pieces such as clocks and installation. Why choose only one piece of art when you can use several to create one large display?
The best part about gallery walls are how personal they are. No two gallery walls are the same because each piece ─ from the frame to the matting to the art inside it ─ has been chosen by you. Even the arrangement makes it unique.
Many people choose to do their gallery walls in one uniform style, such as all black and white photos in black frames and white matting. But mixing up the frames and even the matting can create a fun and charming display. Mismatched gallery walls are full of character and provide yet another opportunity to put your own spin on it.
You don’t have to be an expert to arrange your own gallery wall. Simply choose all of your pieces and measure the space on your wall you want to display the gallery. Cut pieces of parchment paper in the size of each piece and play with the arrangement on the wall using painter’s tape. Once you’ve got an arrangement you’re happy with, hang everything in its chosen spot.
Here are 10 great examples of mismatched gallery walls to inspire you.
