How to: Styling a Nursery Gallery Wall


Every nursery deserves a bright, colorful wall of art and photography -  a vibrant, creative space to read, work on art projects, or just lay around during tummy time!

The key to a creating a playful gallery wall fit for any nursery is mixing it up - not just with the images, but also with the frame styles, colors, textures, and mediums.  Below is a step-by-step guide to creating a layered and balanced gallery wall that can change as often and as quickly as your little ones.

To start, head to the frame shop and upload your favorite prints, photographs, children's illustrations, or anything you want to hang in the nursery and select a variety of frame styles (as well as acrylic and canvas prints) to create a mix of art that will add a playful touch to the nursery. 

Once your frames and prints have arrived, its time to style!  Below, find all the steps to building a perfect and playful gallery wall! 

To start, we recommend installing gallery wall ledges.  Ledges make is super easy to rearrange and replace art without drilling a million holes in your wall.  Kids go through a million phases and change their minds about what they love often, so its best to keep the ledges up so the art can change as often as they change their minds.  

Start with the larger pieces to anchor the gallery wall. Working your way in, disperse across the entire length of of the ledges to create balance. Leave some space inbetween to add smaller pieces to add depth.

Add other mediums.  Gallery walls don't have to be limited to frames only!  Add in acrylic prints, canvas prints, or sentimental objects to mix it up and create a dynamic look!

Absolutely add some precious pics of the little ones!  Its their special space - let them see that!

Add some smaller pieces up front to create overlapping layers. (You may want to secure with painters tape on the back to make sure nothing flops over)
