We don’t know about you but pinning anything on Pinterest from nail art inspo to dreamy weddings photos and fabulous home decor is now our favourite hobby. Recently one trend that caught our eye from our favourite Home inspirations boards is the Wall Art Gallery. Photos of loved ones, vintage prints, beautiful canvas or art preciously collected over the years, everything is good to be hung on your wall.
But long gone is that time where art and photo frames would be hung in a very symetrical way, now it’s all about having fun and playing around with your different artworks and create a statement wall.

We’ve asked a few tips to our favourite Home Decor bloggers on how to create the perfect wall art gallery:

Kimberly, from Swoonworthy:

“Our gallery wall was born out of trying to hide the television in our dining room! Incorporating the TV as part of the gallery allowed it to blend a lot better with its surroundings.  Inspiration came from everywhere – other blogs, Pinterest, and a love of eclectic styling and colour.”Kimberly 1

Follow Kimberly’s tips for a great gallery wall:

“First, be patient – a great gallery wall is built over time so choose art that really speaks to you and your style and don’t rush the process.”

“Second – don’t be afraid to get it wrong. Flat/Matte paint and a bit of filler are the secret to invisible touch-ups!”

Emily did a style photo session in Dave and Rashna’s House and their family photo wall.

“Ultimately, the wall is incredibly happy. She wanted it to feel really collected over time so we went with the ‘let’s get a bunch of frames in the color palette and just go for it’ method.”

“There are lots of gallery wall ideas on pinterest that inspired me (and I found the free coffee themed prints on there) as well as finding them on other homes & interiors blogs.”

Choosing the position is crucial “Think about which wall in your home would work best, it could be a boring blank one like ours, or up the stairway or even inside your downstairs loo.”

Jackie thinks planning is key:

“Trace your filled frames onto paper and cut them out. Label them and mark where the hanger is. Using painter’s tape, begin placing the papers onto your wall, moving them around until you achieve your desired arrangement. Then drive your nails through the marks and hang your frames.”

Annabel, from Annabel Vita:

Annabel wanted something to go above her chest of drawers but didn’t have any art work.

“I started by hanging the mirror in the centre and then placed the rest of the frames organically from there. This wasn’t a perfect process (the frames hide a few extra nail holes), but I got there in the end!”
