Creating a gallery in your home is a wonderful way to turn a bare wall into a delightful display of photos, art, or other treasures. Just like any decorative scheme, it requires thoughtfulness and a little bit of design know-how. Whether its shape, height, color, or subject, come up with a theme or strategy for creating a cohesive and beautifully artistic gallery wall. Here are some of our favorite design ideas and decor for creating a gorgeous coastal-inspired gallery wall.
Line a staircase with a collection of Framed Sea Fans, which are actual dried sea fans that were harvested from the ocean and hand-tinted by the artist Karen Roberston.
Mix old and new. Combine your own sailing photos with Limited Edition Canvas Giclee Prints of original oil paintings by internationally acclaimed artist Julia O’Malley-Keyes.
Forget the hammer and nails and use shelves instead. Lean a Nautical Welcome against the wall to create an artful shelf gallery. Created with distressed wood, these pieces of art will especially pop against a crisp white wall. For a really chic look, keep shelves white, too.
Mix in mirrors with art. The Robin Rowe Cottage Floral Studies would look picturesque mingling with a collage of mirrors.
When hanging art or decor, achieve the right spacing by using tape to mark the borders of frames.
