For graphic consistency, choose a collection of frames with a similar shape and finish.
2. Map it out
Start by laying out all of the frames and décor pieces on the floor. Trace each one on kraft paper and cut out the shapes. Arrange and tape the pieces to the wall with blue painter’s tape, so as not to damage your wall.
3. Nail it
Once you’re happy with the arrangement, mark the edges of each element and a hole for where the nail will go. Remove the kraft paper and hang each piece in its place.
4. Furnish it
Choose a sofa, credenza or other piece of furniture to anchor the gallery wall. Add dimension to the gallery by leaning frames and décor against the wall in a mix of materials, such as ceramic, metal and glass.
