Photo Wall Layouts
As I scroll through Pinterest, I can’t help but notice the countless photo wall displays. I love the texture that they can bring and I love quotes and family pictures. I have a hard time looking at a wall and visualizing where frames, shelves and other décor should be placed. So, I found a guide that helps me visualize what I want my wall to look like. Here it is!
This usually just gets me started! If you want to spice up these layouts or add something besides just pictures here are some tips.
- Keep it simple.
Simple silhouettes in plain frames look elegant. Not every piece or photo wall display needs to be bold and colorful. You can use this tip to add a bit of nature into your home as well.
A great way to save money is to print wall art instead of buying them. There are many sites out there where you can print sayings, art and anything you can think of! Here are just a few. All you have to do is frame them, how easy is that?
2. Draw a Line.
This will help you when you are actually hanging the wall art. Decide on a ‘line’ for your gallery wall. It can be vertical or horizontal, and you can place it anywhere. You can also use multiple lines, kind of like a grid. Use the line/lines to anchor your frames.
3. Get Reflective.
4. Mix and Match.
Don’t be afraid to mix art, as long as you keep a simple theme or “look.” You could try a sailboat print, weird-foreign-maps, small mirrors, and a favorite photograph of you in the ocean that is in black and white. It doesn’t have to be matchy-matchy to look good.
You can also mix up the shape and sizes of your items. Just pick 2-3 sizes/shapes and repeat them throughout the photo wall. I think this tip makes photo walls more pleasing to the eye and totally unique.
I hope I’ve left you with some great ideas for creating a gallery wall of your own. Let me know what photo wall layout is your favorite!
