Create a Gallery Wall with Your Shelves
Ready to take your bare walls to the next level? A gallery wall in the living room, office, or even bathroom can show off a curated collection of paintings, prints, and photographs in stylish frames that suit your personality- no need to overthink the design. The general rule of thumb to designing a gallery wall is to choose what you like. Keep reading for some helpful tips to get you started!
Curate your collection.
Start by gathering the art pieces you want to display on your shelves. If you're not sure where to start, choose something you like to look at. Another option is to choose colors that fit your space.
One idea is to mix your photographs with shop-bought prints. Framing your favorite photos of friends and family will add a personalized touch and remind you of good memories every time you look at them. You can also buy prints online or check out your local thrift stores to get a feel for what you like.
Keep it simple.
Want to keep your gallery wall art cohesive? Use a consistent frame color! This does not mean you need to get frames in the same style; instead, aim to collect frames with similar tones. Whether you choose to go with black brushed metal, metallic gold, or rustic unstained wood, selecting a consistent frame color will give your art and frames flexibility to grow over time seamlessly.
Get a letterboard.
A fun way to refresh your gallery art is to invest in a letterboard. A letterboard has endless possibilities! Change it up with your favorite quotes, song lyrics, or messages to your loved one. The beauty of using shelves to display your gallery wall is to choose to hang a few photos and use your shelves to lean pictures or other objects like a letterboard against the wall.
Wall art is not limited to just frames and prints. It can be anything decorative! Add other decor items like succulents, clocks, fairy lights, and other decorative items of sentimental value.
