Your walls are crying out for a gallery wall.
If you're tired of the same old wall decor, it's time to add some art prints to your walls that speak to you and reflect your personality. It's also about being able to communicate who you are, what you like, and where you've been...while making your space beautiful :)
What is a gallery wall?
A gallery wall is a collection of art prints and other objects hung on a wall so that they look like a single piece. A gallery wall can be as simple as a few art prints or posters hung in a row, or it can be made up of several dozen pieces. The idea behind a gallery wall is to create impact with the overall aesthetics of the display rather than any one individual object.
Yes, gallery walls are still in style! They're like the cool aunt you never knew you had, but they show up to your birthday dinner and make the whole family feel loved and included. You can't help but feel like a better person when you look at them. Even if it's just for a second, before you go back to staring at your computer screen and wondering why you didn't go into accounting instead.
How to create a gallery wall in 5 simple steps
- 1. Keep it simple. Gallery walls don't need to be complicated or elaborate, they just need to look good!
- 2. Display what matters most to you. If your favorite things are framed photos of your family and pets, then put them up!
- 3. Be thoughtful about where you hang things in relation to each other: Do they compliment one another? Are they in harmony? Are the colors similar enough?
- 4. Be honest with yourself: If something doesn't work on your wall, it's okay if you take it down and try again later with something else instead! That's what makes this kind of art so fun—you can change it up whenever you want!
- 5. Make sure every piece has meaning for you; otherwise why would anyone else care about it too?
When it comes to choosing wall art for your gallery wall, the best advice we can give you is: pick things that reflect your personality and life. This can mean finding artwork that reflects your favorite hobby or interest—for example, if you love to travel to Mexico, try our Mexico art print! Or maybe you're into astrology...show off your star sign with our zodiac collection. Choose a color scheme that makes you happy. What colors make you feel relaxed? Excited to be alive? And what colors would look great with the rest of your decor? For example, if you have a pink wall, make sure to add some bright red art print... these two colors always look amazing together. Find art prints that capture those feelings—or even better, find ones that create those feelings in you! Hang them up where you can see them every day. It's like a little mood boost for when you need it most.

We love the beautiful color combinations of yellows, greens and blues. And the fact that it is on a painted wall and that the prints look just amazing with the other patterns and fabric colors on the bed and around the room.

We love how the wall is just covered with art, and the neutral tones with the pops of red and pink. Perfect for above a tv console table or a low shelf.
