Interior Design Ideas | Create a Gallery Wall For Your New Home

Art can have a massive impact – whether it is a single piece or a gallery wall, it is a fantastic way to define your style and create a different atmosphere in your home. There a few different things for you to consider when choosing art and imagery for your walls – such as the colours you already have in a room, as well as the depth and amount of noise a space can handle.

Choose The Layout




If you want a more organised look, you may consider a grid layout that consists of art and images of the same size. This creates a cleaner design that tends to limit you to less colours and similar frames, but can create a terrific look for spaces that call for less chaos like the kitchen or formal dining area.




For areas that you want to give more personality, consider artworks with different depths, colours and frames that create a wall that asks to be admired. A great way to personalise bedrooms and living spaces.

Choose the largest item first



It is a good start to choose the largest art piece first, more often than not the statement piece and then build from there. That is if you have chosen to create a wall with art of different depth and sizes.

Stay Within Your Colour Palette

It is possible to overwhelm a room with too much colour. When choosing art for your walls, ensure that the hues suit the colour palette of the space. Sticking by the rule of thirds when choosing colour for your room is a good way create a sense of balance. If you already have a fairly busy space then choose minimalistic artwork – if you are working on a simple space then you have the opportunity to be bold and spruce up the wall to create a statement.

Decorating Kids Rooms



Gallery walls are an amazing way to decorate your children’s rooms. Personalise it by adding artwork from your children – this is a quick way to transform and make for a creative space that you and your child will love.

Gallery walls for children don’t need to be limited to artworks either – incorporating toys or clothing that sit on shelving or hanging can create an equally cute and effective wall space with a younger look.
