I’m sure most of you have run into this problem at one time or another in your lives: you have a giant empty wall in your home and don’t have the budget to fill it with a $2,000 piece of art. And let’s be honest- you can only have so many giant clocks hanging in your home before it becomes overkill. So what do you do?! One of my absolute favorite design tricks is the gallery wall. If it’s done right, it can add so much elegance and charm to a home while still staying on a reasonable budget. And it adds a very personal touch if you use your own photos. If you want to keep it classic and simple, I love the idea of using black and white photos with a super simple frame. Target has great deals on frames and other fun pieces you can throw in with the framed photos. If you want to add some color to a space, try some fun watercolor paintings in a set of gold frames. Here are some ideas of frames & wall art that I think would perfect for your own little gallery wall!
Any ideas for an apartment like mine? We aren’t allowed to put stuff on the walls (I live in grad housing for school) and i really want to decorate without going overkill or over budget. Any input or can you do a post one time about decor around the house? 🙂
So you aren’t allow to put anything on the walls? No push pins or anything?
We have the same situation in our military housing here in Japan!
Can I suggest using command hooks? They are GREAT for people who are living in rented spaces and don’t want to leave their mark. They go up using a tacky substance that miraculously holds the weight of your wall decor without ever leaving a mark or pulling off the paint. They have a variety of products that all hold different weights. Ive hung large pieces of art, personal photos, and clocks. I always get mine at Bed Bath and Beyond and wait to use those 20% off coupons they send via text and e-mail.
Command hooks are great as is Washi tape! I used Washi tape to frame my pictures & posters to make a DIY Gallery Wall look.
Lauren, really nice ideas!
I am going to make such a gallery wall in our new flat. Thanks for ideas!
Many greetings from Vienna, Austria 😉
