Flüff “How To” ~ Creating a Casual Gallery Wall

Lately there are requests from our clients for a more relaxed or “lived in” approach to styling their properties. We think that adding a casual gallery wall to a living space is a great way to add some interest to a room, and it mixes things up a little. Here are some tips for creating a casual gallery wall in your home.

  • Choose Different Size Images – Variety adds interest and texture. A more relaxed look is achieved using different size images and frames.

 

  • Use Photographs – Artistic photos are perfect for displaying in a show suite, staged home or your personal space. If using them in your own home, why not use images that are special to you but also beautiful!

  • Choose a Consistent Palette – One predominate colour should whisper throughout the grouping. Using black and white images with subtle hints of one or two colours is also effective.

 

  • Balance Light and Dark – Make sure you use some matted images or prints with white space. Don’t choose all dark or all light artwork, again variety is important.

 

  • Mix It Up – A mix of art prints, photos and wall art can be fun too. We often use a clock or decorative wall piece to enhance a space or create a feature wall.
