We love our oversized art - but something else we really love is a gallery wall... It can look collected and there's so many types of art and shadow boxes you can use.. Botanical Prints, Line Abstracts , Geo collections, Framed Intaglios, or Family Photos.. What subject do you prefer? It would depend on your space..
Picking your Subject
I found these Botanical Prints on Etsy. The Autumn colors in this set are just beautiful.. so many different ways to hang them too!
Black and white family, or travel photography.. Family pictures are meaningful and can give you a sense of "Completion" in a home... We love doing this for clients.
Different Ways to Hang your Gallery Wall
A more cultivated take on the Gallery wall is the Salon-Style ... overtime you can find a variety of pieces to give your walls a unique flair. Using architectural mixed with landscape paintings - all in soft soothing neutral tones.. It's all about collecting what you like. Make it personal.
Classic French Salon Style
Centering Larger Art
Using a larger art piece to Ground the Gallery.... then three or two smaller pieces on each side..This is awesome in a foyer.
Hanging above the doorways and closer to the height of the windows in higher spaces to accentuate the ceilings.
Use Smaller scale pieces
Scale is important when knowing where to hang.. With the Larger piece usually being the focal point. If you have smaller wall hangings this is a great use of them... integrating them with wall brackets and jars..
Using frames with the same or a similar finish/style. It's still a collection but they wouldn't all be exactly the same size.
