One of my favorite ways to display frames is through a ‘gallery wall’.
I think the reason I love gallery walls so much is that there is no right or wrong way to put one together. Gallery walls also can be used in almost any room and can be used for any gender.
We have two gallery walls in our house that I hope will give you some inspiration when designing your own.
HERS: The first gallery wall is above our couch in our Bonus Room. I wanted this room to be comfortable, but put together. This room also houses many of our Mizzou items so a black and white gallery wall tied the room together perfectly.
HIS: The second gallery wall is located in the hubs’ home office. This wall is designed with the thought that he will continue adding onto it in the future. Gallery walls can be added onto very easily!
Gallery Wall Tips and Tricks…
Remember, a gallery wall can display many unique items, not just picture frames. The fleur-de-lis tin, the ‘T’ and the hubs’ fraternity paddle are just a few items that give the wall texture and another dimension.
When planning a gallery wall, I like to lay all the pieces out on the floor. This gives me a chance to play with the items/frames’ placement before putting nails in the wall.
Another way to map out a gallery wall is by cutting newspaper the size of your frames/items, taping the newspaper to the wall in the design you like and simply nailing right through the newspaper after measuring for nail holes. When you pull the newspaper off, your frames are ready to be hung!
