Gallery walls are awesome for displaying several objects and creating a spectacular statement in your home. Their great advantage is that they have a major visual impact and can be customized to your likes and preferences. You can use everything that goes through your mind – old posters, postcards, pictures, small maps, photos, childhood drawings, artworks and so on. Depending on what you want, you can create an eclectic wall or a simple, subtle one that fits the house’s décor. Here are some ideas for a lovely gallery wall arrangement.
Baskets are the original home décor element, especially when they’re hanging on a wall. For a pop of color, you can choose a range of colorful baskets of all shapes and sizes. Similarly, for more of a homogenous look, you can try different shades of brown and beige.
Mirror, mirror, on the gallery wall.
Mirrors are gorgeous reflective surfaces with charming lights that dance around during the day and tiny sparkles that twinkle during twilight. Opt for square mirrors if you want a structured look. If you’re more into a messy, yet chic arrangement, spherical shapes are perfect for you.
Just as in other aspects of life, there’s plenty of beauty in an undefined and uneven gallery wall. An apparently untidy collection of photos, postcards, posters or images may be the first cornerstone of something extraordinary. Tip: choose solid and colored frames to give a certain structure to this collection. Keep a skeletal outline, but have fun with the rest of the arrangement.

Mix and match paintings with black & white and color photos and combine tall with wide items.
