Choosing Your Art
The first step in creating your gallery wall arrangement is selecting the framed pieces and/or canvas prints that you wish to display. A gallery wall can often be done completely organically, with different pieces in different frame styles and colors added over time (or, at least, with the intent to look that way.) Usually though, it can be more appealing to use pieces that are connected by a common theme, element, or art style, which is what we have done for this display.
In this case, color and style were our biggest considerations. We chose pieces that primarily feature warm colors and subject matter that is stylistic, edging toward abstraction. Subject can be seen as a travel theme to evoke feelings of wanderlust. The three middle pieces all use the same style white frames to give the arrangement a sense of uniformity… and to contrast with the colorful art of course. When putting your arrangement together, try choosing pieces that share a similar connection. How broad or specific those connections are is entirely up to you.
