How I Design My Gallery Walls

You’ve seen them flood Pinterest. They are all the rage and the new way of decorating that takes home decor to a whole new level. Each gallery wall has its own unique flare which has been carefully created by the homemaker. A lot of thought, measurement, and creativity went into each display. I’ve seen gallery walls that are symmetrical, asymmetrical, eclectic, some are spaced farther away than others, some are simplified, and others fill the entire wall. I’ve seen guitars, rolling pins, mirrors, plates, anything for that matter. It really is an art displaying your unique style and interests. I’ve been so intrigued with them and could not get enough of this gallery wall idea and knew it was only a matter of time before I jumped on the bandwagon.

It took me a while to get started because I didn’t know where to start, how to start one, and what to include. I’ve searched blog after blog on a common pattern and wondered how do I start from here? Many I have seen created cut outs of the wall hangings to give them a visual. I just didn’t want to take the time to cut out the paper and then hang my wall hangings. “So how do you put a gallery wall together?” You may be asking. Well, I later found another way of putting the pieces together and it is the only way I hang my gallery walls. The idea is called a rotating gallery wall. Essentially, you start with the main anchor piece that you want to be the center of attention. Then you basically work your way around it with other pieces moving in a clockwise rotation. So simple!

I like the idea of a rotating gallery wall because it leaves room for growth. I love wall hangings and I like that this concept gives me an option, even if I never expand from there, at least I know I have room to add on to it. Every time I finish another gallery wall, I feel like I just completed a masterpiece and I’m so proud of my efforts. You always want to be proud of what is displayed in your home, gallery wall or not.

I have always put together each of my gallery walls with a lot of thought. As you can see, I’ve had certain themes and it’s so fun to put the pieces together. I’ve had themes for the rustic kitchen, wedding themed, adventure, and farmhouse. I hope this blog post gave you inspiration and I would love to see your gallery walls as well.

 

Love,
