Nothing is quite as chic and timeless as black and white. Add it to any space and it immediately elevates the style and elegance. I love gallery walls for the amount of character they bring to a room, but it can be tricky to create a cohesive look with various colors. That’s the beauty of black and white gallery walls. They are a lot easier to arrange and look especially chic when they’re done.
A black and white gallery wall looks great in a variety of spaces. You can hang them over a console table for a vignette in an entryway, in a hallway or along a staircase, above a sofa or bed, and just about anywhere else you can think of. They’re also wonderful for family photographs if you want to display them in a stylish way.
Here are 10 beautiful examples of black and white gallery walls to inspire you.
