How To Hang Your Gallery Wall
No. 1 Collect & Create

No. 1

Collect & Curate
Almost anything can have visual impact when framed and hung-pages from magazines, photos from recent travels and even old love letters can constitute a collection. We recommend keeping the palette simple and using mirrored, black or white frames to make your collection feel cohesive.

No. 2 Get Centered

Get Centered
Anchor your favorite-or biggest-few pieces in the center, and then slowly work in other artwork around them. Tip: Keep a few inches between the pieces as you hang them—it's all about organized chaos.

No. 3 The Big Picture

No. 3

The Big Picture
Every so often, take a few steps back and view your wall from another area in the room. Pay attention to how the color and size of the pieces balance each other out. Use washi tape to fill any unwanted gaps with playing cards, stamps or stickers.

No. 4 All Done

All Done
Remember there are no real guidelines or rules when creating a gallery wall—it's all up to you. Feel free to add or take away pieces as you go on, keeping the artwork relevant to your life. Have fun and enjoy!
