Stylish Gallery Wall Ideas

Create a fun focal point full of personality

Thought the gallery wall was old news? Think again. Modern homes are mixing up their gallery walls to create some show-stopping displays – and some that seemingly blend into the background.

If there’s anything these stylish gallery walls can teach you, it’s that a bit of restraint is key to creating a calm and cohesive scheme. For example, curating a collection of prints all within the same colour scheme, be it neutrals, pastels or monochrome. Alternatively, if the prints are a mix of colours and styles then keeping the frames identical. A neat and tidy grid formation is also an easy way to update a gallery wall, giving it order. Use a row of framed letters to spell out a word, or co-ordinate a series of neon-framed cartoons in a structured grid formation.
