How to design a wall gallery yourself?

Wall gallery is an excellent decoration idea. It always catches the eye and, if well composed, makes a great impression. I think it is worth treating such an undertaking as a larger project and apply yourself to every stage of this project, and the result will be sensational. I will try to show you in a few steps how to go about it and what laws govern the gallery. 1 The first task seems obvious but nevertheless it is an important point. It is necessary to find a suitable wall on which to place our gallery. The best walls are those with a TV, behind the sofa, behind the bed, the baby's crib, by the stairs. It should be a blank and well exposed place. 2 Think about what style the gallery will be. It can be orderly, composed of small elements or disjointed. Below you will find examples of such walls. You may want to get an eclectic effect, or keep it in a minimalist style. The most important thing is that it should not be a small gallery. It should consist of more elements. If you use, for example, 2-3 pictures you will not achieve the intended effect. You will not use the potential of the wall and such an arrangement will look haphazard. Don't get me wrong... One or two pictures are also a cool idea just don't make a gallery and must hang in the right place.

                                      This is a good example of how to make a gallery that has closed borders. Nothing sticks out above the lines, everything is enclosed in a square.

Here, on the other hand, the posters are already arranged a little more loosely and there are no boundaries limiting the gallery. They are simply nicely laid out frames that create a neat composition.

This composition is heavily disjointed but still makes a nice cohesive composition. It's worth noting that the frames in all of the above photos are the same. The only thing that makes them different is the size and passe-partout. This has a strong impact on the aesthetics. Of course, a variety of frames is also cool but it requires us to be more involved in finding and matching them with each other and later when creating the composition. Playing with a variety of frames like this gives an eclectic feel to the wall gallery. If you don't have time to look for the right coordinated posters then I recommend bookmarking our Royal Rabbits store with ready-made sets and wall galleries.

      Examples of how a composition can be killed by too small pictures. Both the wall and the pictures lose their charm. 3 Choose illustrations, posters or photos. To make the gallery cohesive the individual elements should be consistent in color, in a similar style or have a common theme. For example, photos can be black and white and this will create a cohesive whole. Posters can be united by, for example, a green color, etc. Don't worry if some pictures seem too small. You can frame them in a large frame and make a very large passe partout. Such a treatment will add class to your picture. 4 - Frame ! This also depends on the style you follow. If you want a minimalist effect then it is worth choosing a lightweight frame, with a thin aluminum frame. If eclecticism, on the other hand, it is worth taking care of a variety of elements. These can be frames or mirrors scrounged at antique fairs, family heirlooms. You can mix vintage with new modern frames. All tricks are allowed. Elegant interiors, on the other hand, are an orderly space, so identical frames, hung in an orderly chic, will work best. 5.When you have selected frames and photos or posters spread them on the floor and start arranging the composition. It is best to start with the largest elements and gradually move to smaller and smaller ones. Beware of too small distances between frames and avoid symmetry. When the composition is satisfactory, take a picture of it with your phone and trace the frames on the parchment. Then glue the parchment on the wall reflecting the gallery laid out on the floor. Apply final touches and start fixing the frames on the wall 🙂 Effect guaranteed 🙂
