How To Create A Gallery Wall

I’ve been spending a lot of time in my newly-revamped study lately, and one of my favorite parts of the space is the gallery wall my friends at Laurel & Wolf put together for me. I love Slim Aarons iconic photographs so much, I couldn’t pick a favorite– and I didn’t have to! I pulled a favorite photo from Photos.com (the one with the ladies dressed in pink), and dug out some other images that had hung in different areas of the house. I even carefully cut a few pages from my favorite coffee table books, and framed them. Then i got all the pics together in one place, to create a gallery wall. This home decor trick looks super sophisticated, but is actually simple to do. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when designing your own.

1. Tie It Together: Stick with a central theme for your artwork. Perhaps it’s black and white, your favorite artist, old family photos, or vintage movie posters – a color story can become the theme, allowing for some diversity in imagery. The key here is to compliment, not necessarily match.

2. Think Outside the Frame: The best galleries have more than a well-curated collection of art, they have perfectly picked frames too! The right frames add character and expression to a room, so feel free to be bold. Either match your frames, or check out the flea market for vintage-looking ones. Take some time to find unique pieces that compliment each other while varying in thickness, weight, and design.

3. Pre-design: Before you start nailing away at the wall, lay out the artwork on the floor and do a test run. This is the best way to decide what pieces look best together and spacing, without the commitment.

4. Experiment with proportions, layouts and spacing. It can help to either – place the largest picture on the wall first, so that the others can fit neatly around it, or, draw a light pencil line (that can be removed) across the center of the wall, and have all pics hang from the top or bottom of that line. It creates a cool effect. Another idea is to put up a really long book shelf (Pottery Barn makes them) and lean all your pics along that, right next to each other. Don’t forget the level (or handy level app!) to make sure that your freeform gallery display is even.

5. What Rules?: In reality there are none! This is your space, so make it feel like you. A gallery is a great way to showcase your interest, dreams, and lifestyle. Have fun with it and know that like you, it can evolve and develop over time.

  55. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  56. I read this article completely regarding the difference of hottest and previous technologies, it’s amazing article.

  57. Can I simply say what a relief to seek out someone who really knows what theyre speaking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know methods to bring a problem to light and make it important. More folks must learn this and understand this side of the story. I cant imagine youre no more fashionable since you definitely have the gift.

  60. seo says:

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
    or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m
    starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
