Gallery wall ideas

The final reveal for the One Room Challenge unveiled a pretty major gallery wall with bright and funky vibes in the upstairs loft.  And we can agree that with 24 total pieces and even some 3D items, this particular wall is not one for the faint of heart.  I mixed and matched classic photographs and one-of-a-kind paintings by GRAY MALIN, BRITT BASSMINTED, AND SALLY KING BENEDICT to tie in a personal feel to this vibrant, quirky room and absolutely loved the outcome.  After creating this gallery wall, I can assure you that whether you’re designing one of this caliber or of a smaller scale, creating a collected and personal feel is easier than you think. The beauty of a gallery wall is that it can grow and evolve as you continue to find and add new pieces, so don’t get too hung up on making mistakes.  And since we received so much feedback and inquiries about the wall, I wanted to share my quick and easy five gallery wall ideas for you all today.  Simply click through the slideshow above to read more.  Truly, MKR

DON'T BE AFRAID TO MIX DIVERSE PATTERNS AND PRINTS THROUGHOUT THE SPACE. JUST REMEMBER WHEN DECORATING WITH BOLD COLORS AND ART PRINTS, CREATE BALANCE IN THE SPACE THROUGH THE USE OF WHITES, NEUTRALS AND METALLIC ACCENTS.
