A simple way to get started is to draw a line. Use the line as a guide for hanging the first row of frames. From there, add to the top and sides and let the collection grow organically. This technique anchors the collection but doesn't feel restricted. Simply stop adding frames to the left, right, and stop when the collection feels balanced and right for the space.





Frame ledges are a great way to create a beautiful gallery wall without having to commit to frame placement or add extra holes to your wall. This is also a great way to rotate works of art and keep your collection changing and evolving as you bring new art into the home.




PRINT, FRAME, REPEAT The simplest way to create an elegant gallery wall is to choose a single style and hang it in a simple square or rectangle. Gallery walls can easily overwhelm a room. Keep it simple when choosing the style and shape to avoid creating a wall that feels too busy.







Choose the center of your gallery wall area and hang the largest image at roughly eye level. From there, organize the smaller pieces around the center. The sides of the collection don't have to line up to maintain a balanced feel. White on white helps this gallery wall arrangement feel organized without having to do any precise measuring.
