There are a couple of walls in my home that are crying out for an arty display so gallery walls have been on my mind for a while. I know they have been all over catalogues and blogs, but I don’t know anyone who isn’t a fan of good art displays so hopefully you won’t mind going through yet another post about gallery goodness. 🙂
I find gallery walls delightful for the creative freedom and expression they allow as there are so many ways to put together an artful display, but sometimes this makes it difficult to know where to begin. When I help clients with their art displays, I find the best way to start is by figuring out what level of eclecticism vs structure is desired. So I have grouped my favourite gallery images into 4 categories, ranging from very eclectic to very structured.
(1) Organic and random
