It's All About the Details: Gallery Walls

Gallery walls are a great way to display art you love, family photos, or a combination of art & wall accessories.  I love that displaying these pieces on a gallery wall you can display symmetrically or asymmetrically: variation or no variation in size, frame, & art itself.

 

There is an art to displaying these pieces.  The way I layout these pieces is first get all measurements of framed work, and second, I draw an elevation of the wall with the artwork.  After I do this, it's always nice to actually place the pieces on the on the floor in the layout I have selected so I can actually see the pieces all together.  Also, this helps my client see what it will look like on the wall (which art piece placed where).  Here are some ways you can try to visualize your artwork/photos.
