Interior Design Tips: 5 New Modern & Dynamic Gallery Walls


Hey everyone! I love a gallery wall and
by all accounts so do you. Creating a layout of images and artwork on a wall
is a great feature in any room or space . But let’s look at some fresh, exciting
new ways to compose a gallery wall. The idea of a gallery wall is to fill up
your wall space with a variety of frames and pieces of art. You’ll see it in a
couple of different compositions like a grid formation or in a more freeform
grouping. But now let’s take both of these a bit further. A new approach is to
fill the entire wall with art. All exposed space is filled with a variety
of frames and sizes right up to the ceiling leaving only small spaces around
each item empty. This creates a major focal point in the room and it can look
decidedly traditional or modern depending on the art pieces themselves
and the type of frame. So if you have lots of artwork in a variety of sizes
take advantage of the full wall. Okay I’d say this is the exact opposite of the
full wall gallery. A gallery wall that is off centered on the wall is a fresh new
approach. Grouping artwork or photography together off to one side can be dynamic
and modern. Just make sure each of your pieces are placed closely together and
that they have a similar intensity or color palette. You’ll also have lots of
empty wall space and a smaller grouping of artwork. Balance is key! Too much wall
space and your grouping loses its impact. Not enough wall space and your grouping
looks like you just didn’t center it properly. What if you don’t have one
large wall but instead have a corner in a room that needs something special. I’m
loving the idea of creeping artwork from one wall to another. It’s a bit of an
optical illusion making one small wall into one larger wall. What a great way to
bring attention to a small eating area where the gallery wall composition wraps
around all the walls. Or what if you have a corner that leads to another room or
hallway? Adding artwork that wraps around an outside corner is a great way to
create a dynamic and gutsy gallery wall. Another dynamic composition is to take
your gallery wall into the third dimension. I’m loving the idea of
layering objects, accessories and/or other art pieces in front of your
gallery wall. So don’t worry about stuff that might sit up tall. Try it with a
console table like this or maybe create a ledge where you can stack frames and
position sculptural objects in conjunction with your art wall. Even by
layering the TV in front of your gallery wall makes for a dynamic and modern
gallery wall display. It’s a casual, fresh approach to integrating function and
decor. And finally, if you’ve got a sliver of a space to create a gallery wall a
composition that cascades down to the floor can be very exciting. This style of gallery wall is high-impact with a tight space. Leave
some pieces off the wall and lean them up against the wall. Maybe even add a
special piece of furniture like an antique chair. It’s a casual approach one
that feels like it’s a work in progress. So here’s your take away… gallery walls
are busting outside of the rules! Today’s gallery wall can fill up a whole
wall or take advantage of empty wall space. It can be spread from one wall to
another and it can grow to include other objects in front and on the floor. Today’s gallery wall is dynamic, modern and fresh. Thanks for watching this
