By now, gallery walls have transcended the “trend” phase to become a standard option for arranging art. But just because the gallery wall is now a common sight in homes and on Pinterest boards everywhere, doesn’t mean that a great art arrangement can’t still wow. Here are nine beautiful examples of next-level gallery walls that’ll inspired you to push the boundaries on your own art arrangements.
1. Think big.
A super-sized gallery wall, like the vintage-themed collection that covers an expansive stretch of this living room, makes an over-the-top statement.
2. Or small.
Sometimes, a few well-edited pieces on a large wall can make just as big of an impact.
3. Try layering over wallpaper.
A collection of black-and-white drawings in matching gold frames feels rich and polished against chocolate-colored wallpaper.
4. Use mirrors.
Forgo art in favor of a display of antique mirrors, which creates a glamorous, Parisian air in this living space.
5. Stick to a tight palette.
In this case, black, white, and yellow wood tones.
6. Go black and white.
Floor-to-ceiling black and white photography reinforced the high contrast palette in the home of fashion designer Lela Rose.
7. Set things askew.
Nobody says a gallery wall has to be perfectly aligned. Arranging certain pieces slightly off-kilter feels eclectic and bohemian.
8. Fill an entire space.
For a major statement, leave no inch of the wall uncovered.
9. Decorate around the corner.
A gallery wall display doesn’t need to be limited to one wall. Wrapping it around a corner feels fresh.
