Wall Envy

Refresh your walls!  An easy way to change things up in your home is to add some new artwork to your walls!  Here are a few hints on creating the perfect gallery wall!

Tell a story with your wall!  Whether its photography, bold abstract paintings or vintage prints, make sure there’s a common thread throughout! Maybe it’s the color palette, or subject matter, having something similar in your collection helps make your wall look purposeful.

Think outside the box!  Add dimension and depth with different style frames.  It’s more interesting when your gallery has a combination of frames from white wood, to rose gold metal, to just a canvas.  Another fun idea is to add something unexpected like a woven banner, wall plater, ceramic plates or sculpture, even a little shelf to place another picture on.

Go local!  We are so lucky to live in a neighborhood rich in original artwork!  The South Boston Artist Association Gallery – an artist-run space featuring local artists’ work – is a great spot to start to find original artwork for your wall! Visit here for hours and more information! 

Get is straight!  Here is a really cute video on how to hang a perfect gallery wall!
