Step 1: Decide on your gallery wall theme and what items you want to include
- Choose a focal point. For me, I was obsessed with this Gray Malin print that my husband got me this past Christmas, and I thought it fit perfect with the overall vibe of my room.
- Choose frames and/or items that have different shapes and textures. It can add so much dimension and personality to your wall. Also, don't be afraid to mix in different prints! I'm a lover of all things printed and I clearly went out of my way to ensure that there was some splash of Katie Kime.
- Work in odd numbers. Symmetry isn't everything, so don't get hung up on spacing your wall items perfectly, having the same frames, etc.
Step 2: Prep
- Patience is key in creating a gallery wall. Take the time to trace and cut out shapes of paper that match the dimensions of your wall items. You can then use painter's tape to hang the silhouettes on the wall. This will allow you to step back and play with your arrangement design.
Step 3: Hang your items
- Transform your vision into reality.
The Jefferson Lane Design Look
- Framed fabric - I repurposed leftover Katie Kime banana leaf fabric by framing it! Such an easy DIY. Measure, cut and voila!
- The modern antique - I'm all about reviving antiques and incorporating them into my design style. There's something about this paradox that I love.
- Animals - If you knew the number of different faux animal heads I had in my personal collection, you might throw up. My house is HomeGoods.
